Songs of Scripture
Welcome to Songs of Scripture, where we link Scripture with the lyrics of Christian songs, worship choruses, and hymns.
This song gets a little bit creative with actual events (no, I don’t believe that Jesus and Satan had a boxing match…), but I love the imagery of it—and the final conclusion. Jesus is the Champion! He is the one who bought salvation for you and me.
