"He was crucified for us"

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only-begotten Son of God,
begotten of the Father before all worlds:
God of God, Light of Light,
very God of very God; begotten not made;
being of one substance with the Father,
by whom all things were made;
who for us men
and for our salvation came down from heaven;
and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the virgin Mary,
and was made man.
He was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried....


  1. That is very similar to the Apostle's Creed I learned as a child:

    I believe in God the Father Amighty
    Maker of Heaven and earth
    And in Jesus Christ His only Son
    our Lord
    Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
    Born of the Virgin Mary
    Suffered under Pontius Pilate
    Was crucified dead and buried
    On the third day He arose from the dead
    And sitteth at the right hand
    Of God the Father Almighty
    From thence He shall come to judge
    The quick and the dead
    I believe in the Holy Universal Church
    The communion of saints
    The forgiveness of sins
    The resurrection of the body
    And life everlasting.

  2. It is, in fact, the first part of the Nicene Creed.
