Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the dialogue between Christ and Satan who represent the order of light and darkness, respectively. The text begins with a brief narrative by Archangel Michael: Jesus came into the world, has fulfilled its mission, has died, has opened the gates of hell and freed the souls there. Then, comes Satan the devil in the sky, demanding the return of his property. Satan accuses Jesus to have done him wrong, but Gabriel acting as a lawyer to Jesus, refutes the allegations. Satan wants to prove that Jesus was not free from sin. Gabriel proves that Jesus had redeemed humanity with his blood, and argues against Satan's claim that he had acquired the humanity with integrity. Finally, the judge reads his verdict: Jesus is acquitted, and Satan is convicted. The choir of angels praise the judge. The original text of the chapter is in German.
