In a recent article in Time Magazine entitled Risen Again: China’s Underground Churches, the author states that in spite of continuous persecution by the Chinese Communist Party, Pew Research estimates that there are now 23 million evangelicals attending state approved churches and over 35 million who attend underground protestant churches. With an average attendance of about 50, that means that there are about a million underground preachers in the country. These are preachers who get little or no pay and who live constantly under the threat of arrest and imprisonment. They truly are some amazingly brave men to do what they do. But as brave as these men are, today we are going to look at a much braver underground preacher—this one was beaten and crucified and killed and then He went all the way down into the lower parts of the earth-to Hades itself- to preach.
