Chapter Summary

Bosworth enlists the Old Testament types of Christ's atonement in support of his healing-in-the-atonement doctrine, matching them with their New Testament counterparts. He appeals to the "seven redemptive names of Jehovah" to drive home his point about healing being included in the atonement. According to Kenneth E. Hagin, Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17, and Peter 2:24 are "three witnesses" who "tell us that not only did Jesus shed His blood for the remission of our sins, but with His stripes we were healed". Francis MacNutt is a stranger to the Holiness-Pentecostal doctrine of healing in the atonement. He differs from Sanford, because he does not draw on New Thought authors and psychological theories. He ties the cross to resurrection and the Pentecostal outpouring of the Spirit. MacNutt's view of the atonement is more dynamic or pneumatic when compared with that of Bosworth and Hagin.
