I am the resurrection and the life saith the Lord:
he that believeth in me, yea, though he were dead,
yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and
believeth in me shall not die forever.

(dixit ei Iesus) ego sum resurrectio et vita
qui credit in me et si mortuus fuerit vivet
et omnis qui vivit et credit in me
non morietur in aeternum credis hoc.
