In the New Testament, there are more than one hundred references to demons. In the Gospels alone, there are seventeen mentions of demonization. This week on The Land and the Book, we’ll look at the Spirit World at the time of Christ. And we’ll be reminded that “Greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world.” All on The Land and the Book.
