Throughout history, three princes have exercised authority over the earth. The rule of the first, Adam, was pitifully short. His authority was stolen by Satan, the second prince, who brought unspeakable suffering to mankind. This began the supreme drama of all time, the drama of redemption. It is a drama that finds its climax in Satan's defeat and the triumph of the third Prince, Jesus Christ, who became a man in order to win back what the first man had lost.
