Dr. H. Rondel Rumburg has written a definitive work of the soul sufferings of Christ. In a day of shallow, sentimental, and lame theology, where humanistic and unscriptural depictions of Christ and His sufferings abound on every hand, Dr. Rumburg has brought forth a volume that extols Christ, describes the greatness of His sufferings and brings us to a great understanding of His sacrifice. In this book, we do indeed “Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). We behold not only His Person but also His sufferings. We behold Him from the Old Testament and into the New Testament. We behold the prophecies and the fulfillment of the prophecies. We see that as great as His physical sufferings were, His spiritual or soul sufferings were the greatest of His sufferings. Every Christian can quickly and easily discuss His trial, scourging, humiliation, and crucifixion. The questions remains to be asked: “How many can even faintly discuss our Lord’s soul Sufferings?”
Dr. Rumburg’s book is a must read for every pastor, deacon, officer, and Christian. We must know everything that we can concerning our wonderful Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and especially as it relates to His suffering on our behalf.
This volume seeks to give a Biblical study of an area of Christ’s atoning work that is often overlooked. The bodily sufferings of Christ are discussed with great frequency than those of His soul. What do you know of Christ’s soul sufferings?
