Christian doggerel

I wrote this quatrain a few months ago. I’m no Christian, but I can’t resist a good punplex.

One of Jesus’ one-liners, and far from his worst,
Says the first shall be last and the last shall be first.
In the tongue of the Angles it means something more:
That the law is a wall but the rood is a door.
