A PENTECOSTAL CLASSIC

Image
J.H.King was one of the most highly respected men of the early Pentecostal movement. As a leader in first the Fire Baptized Holiness Church and then the Pentecostal Holiness Church he was able to move across the country, and the globe, to witness and share his faith firsthand.  This volume,From Passover to Pentecost, written in 1911 is noted as being an important early explanation of the pentecostal experience and as such a formative work in Pentecostal Holiness theological development (Synan, The Century of the Spirit, pg. 111).
King's work presented a clear theology of grace symbolized in the Passover and fully manifested through the work of the Holy Spirit at the New Testament Pentecost portrayed in the Book of Acts.  As a theology, it is clear was a keen Bible scholar able to illuminate the text with  knowledge of Greek and familiarity with the traditions of Christian theology.

At the recent Centennial Celebration of the IPHC 1911 Merger, held on the campus of Southwestern Christian University, Bethany, Oklahoma, the denominational archivist addressed the gathering.   In an engaging and informative presention he shared the history of the two merging groups - Fire Baptised Holiness and the Pentecostal Holiness - into a single unit named The Pentecostal Holiness Church.  He presented a targeted portion illustrating the unique role of the western segment of the United States in the founding, growth, and development of the southern based IPHC.
