Where was Jesus for the 3 days between His death and resurrection?
He went into hell, the bible tells us and frees his father's, past, fervent, faithful followers such as; Moses, Noah, Abraham....... Then he goes with them back into heaven to receive further instruction from God. It's all right there in the NT.
Philip Pullman's book 'The Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ' contains a nice theory
In Hebrew Hell is the Grave so he was dead in the grave for 3 days.
Remember he said of the Temple (his body) "I'll rebuild it in 3 days"
IntimatEvolution's answer is the same with mine
the place was called Abraham's Bosom.. .
In hell for 3 days making an open display of HIS awesome power over the enemy and claiming VICTORY for all humanity. Stripping the enemy "satan" of all power and taking back that power he had to give it back to us (the believers).
Redemption was his plan and he had to go to hell to take back the power the enemy had over us. Now HE JESUS is LORD over Life and Death. We are redeemed by the blood of the lamb.
Please read my hubs for more insight.
He was " bearing our sins"...........does this mean He was in Hell? Does this mean that God forsaked Him?
Does this mean that there is no accountabiltiy?
I simply do not know..............I only trust that someone does.
My own faith does not hinge upon this detail.
I personally believe that God made me, and Jesus saved me. The details will be revealed in due time.
That time, for me, has not yet come.
I believe from what iv'e been told and read. He went to Hell and put Satan in his place, he grabbed the key of death and hades and took back authority.
I hope that helps
First, allow me to clarify something on this subject. From late Friday evening to early Sunday morning cannot equal three day. Yes or no. The real teaching on this subject are concealed from the masses.
