Did Jesus Descend Into Hell? Well, Yes and No.
by Larry M Wishon
An investigation into WHERE Jesus went and WHAT He did during the three days and nights between His death on the cross and His resurrection.
Where Jesus went and what He did, in the three days and nights between His death on the cross and His resurrection, should not be a matter of curiosity, but a matter of Biblical integrity.
We have been left with some fanciful ideas, and some just plainly grotesque. Does the Bible give us a clear picture of what happened to Jesus between His death and resurrection? We have surprisingly more than we know about where He went, and are left with some questions with regard to what He did.
Did Jesus descend into Hell after He died on the cross? Well, that depends on what you mean by the word, Hell. Inside Did Jesus Descend into Hell? Well, Yes and No, we look at all the different possibilities set forth in the Bible. Other things we delve into are the following:
- There are four different words used in the Bible, translated as Hell. We discover which one is applied to Jesus, and which ones are not.
- Discover what is meant by the prophecy of Isaiah, when he said that God would, “see the travail of his soul and be satisfied.”
- Also, a fresh look at Isaiah 52:14, concerning the “marring” of the Servant of the Lord. The meaning of this verse has changed drastically over the centuries.
- Investigate the claims of the Word of Faith teachers, who teach Jesus had to descend into the flaming torment of hell, and be abused by Satan and his hordes, in order to complete God’s redemptive plan to save man.
- We also take a fresh look at what Peter says concerning Jesus’ going down and preaching to the spirits in prison. Hint: Jesus did not preach but made an announcement. What did He announce?
- Paul states before Christ ascended up on high, He first descended, then He led captivity captive. Who were these captives that He set free? We look at the only Biblical possibility.
