Heidelberg Catechism Q. 2

Question:  How many things must you know that you may live and die in the blessedness of this comfort?

Answer:  Three.  First, the greatness of my sin and wretchedness.  Second, how I am freed from all my sins and their wretched consequences.  Third, what gratitude I owe to God for such redemption.

— Dr. Zacharias Ursinus

... best known as the principal author and interpreter of the Heidelberg Catechism which is a Protestant confessional document taking the form of a series of questions and answers, for use in teaching Reformed Christian doctrine.
