Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter of the book aims to summarise and draw together material presented in the preceding six chapters. It also summarises previous findings, implications and key observations. The chapter offers a response to one of the most significant criticisms of Jesus died spiritually (JDS) doctrine made in the debate that the teaching, like so much that is promulgated within the Word-faith movement, owes its origins not to orthodox Christianity, but to the heterodox ideas prevalent in New Thought and Christian Science. It explains some further responses to those charges laid against JDS doctrine by its main critics. The chapter offers two sets of sundry observations, concerning semantic considerations and the triduum mortis. The chapter presents an overall appraisal of JDS teaching.

Keywords: Christianity; JDS doctrine; Jesus died spiritually (JDS) doctrine; triduum mortis; Word-faith movement
