One of the great battles of history was fought in Greece at Thermopylae. There, 300 Spartans held off a vast Persian army for days, but eventually all perished. Greek school children are required to memorize the names of the 300 who perished there. However, Jesus met the enemy at the dark pass of Calvary alone, and single-handedly defeated death, the grave and hell. So we have but one name to remember, and let us never forget it. We have only one name to enshrine, so let us do it. The name is Jesus.
