Pick up this apple, and you will find under it an immeasurable purchase.

Because through an apple the sin, death, has come, a little child took upon itself the guilt, has vouched himself. Flee, o man, from sin, so that the little child may not punish you with death.

Life will be reached,

[along right side]
sin will be destroyed.

[on the book]
The word was made flesh.

Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. In the center of the fraktur is an apple. On the left is a tree with apples. A cross and a bible are at its foot. On the right is a barren tree. A snake, the two tablets with the commandments, and a fallen apple are at its foot. Next to the trees are two lines of text in Fraktur. Additional text is in the upper center within a frame, and below the image. The entire document is framed by a decorative border. The apple can be lifted up to reveal additional images and text (see FLP 663f).
