The church has never fully understood the spiritual significance of what happened when Christ died on the cross, was buried and rose again on the third day. All that the average Christian has seen is the physical suffering of Christ. Few realize the deep truths that are given us in the Pauline Revelation. Until God revealed these truths to Paul, no one understood why Christ came… why the death on the cross was necessary… no one knew what happened during those three days that his physical body lay in the tomb before the resurrection. Even the disciples, who had walked with Jesus, did not fully realize who He was, why He came, what He was to suffer and what they were to gain by His suffering. They did not know what happened on the cross, or during the three days and nights before His resurrection, but we must know of these three days, for this is the thing that will build faith into us. These vital truths must be known by every child of God if he or she is to live an overcoming life.
About the Author
Dr. E. W. Kenyon (18671948) was born in Saratoga County, New York. At age nineteen, he preached his first sermon. He pastored several churches in New England and founded the Bethel Bible Institute in Spencer, Massachusetts. (The school later became the Providence Bible Institute when it was relocated to Providence, Rhode Island.) Kenyon served as an evangelist for over twenty years. In 1931, he became a pioneer in Christian radio on the Pacific Coast with his show Kenyon’s Church of the Air, where he earned the moniker “The Faith Builder.” He also began the New Covenant Baptist Church in Seattle. In addition to his pastoral and radio ministries, Kenyon wrote extensively.
