Where was Jesus between His death on Good Friday and His resurrection on Easter morning? Did Jesus really go to hell? The writers of the Creed clearly do not mean that Jesus went to the eternal place of torment we call hell to suffer for 3 days. Jesus descended into death to pay for our sins, but He didn’t stay in that tomb, on the third day He rose. The resurrection of Jesus marks the death of death. As believers in Christ, we are now children of the resurrection. We are mile markers & outposts of the new creation. Because He lives, we can truly have life without fear of sin, death or hell!
