Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the third element: in his spiritual death, Jesus became Satans prey. Two aspects can be distinguished. They are Jesus subjection to Satans domination, and Jesus suffering at Satans hands. The chapter considers the views of Essek William Kenyon, Kenneth Erwin Hagin and Kenneth Copeland. It emerges in this chapter that Kenyon and Copeland hold similar views, while Hagin held back from fully accepting all aspects of the teaching. The chapter discusses the responses to this aspect of Jesus died spiritually (JDS) teaching that have been offered by its critics. This involves a discussion of the possibility that JDS teachers see the atonement in terms of a ransom paid to Satan. The chapter reviews the possible sources Kenyon, Hagin and Copeland have used in developing their theories. It offers an alternative reading of Satans conflict with Jesus.
