Chapter Summary

Jesus died spiritually (JDS) doctrine involves, with minor variations between the teachers, three central concepts. These are that in his spiritual death, Jesus was separated from God, partook of a sinful, satanic nature, and became Satans prey. This chapter deals with the second: Jesus partook of Satans sinful nature. It indicates the main features of the idea as taught by Essek William Kenyon, Kenneth Erwin Hagin and Kenneth Copeland, and demonstrates some divergence between the three. It considers the biblical material that JDS teachers call to their aid in expounding JDS teaching. The chapter describes that neither 2 Corinthians 5:21 nor John 3:14, nor indeed the whole tenor of the biblical witness, offers the support that the teachers under review claim of it. It considered ways in which the Christian tradition has linked Christ with sin and a sinful nature.
