I believe Jesus went to hell when he died. However, I believe also that he was the FIRST that death and hell could not hold. He was the FIRST risen from the dead. We had a discussion on this in another thread... but it was an interesting topic. Here is what I believe: I believe that all men (because of Adam's sin) are born into Sin. I believe that being a decendent of Adam makes you a sinner and that all decendents of Adam are bound to die and go to hell. I believe that all people do sin throughout their lives and therefore deserve their punishment in hell. I believe that all people from Adam to Jesus went to hell when they died, as there was no way for them to go to heaven until Jesus (remember... he is the 'way'). I believe that there was a special place in Hell known as "Abraham's bosom" that was reserved from the firey torment of Hell, but that all went to hell nonetheless. I believe that the animal sacrifices of the old testament were symbolic of Jesus, and that in believing on them, that 'made a way' for those who died before Jesus to believe in Jesus thereby making a way for those who were believers to go to heaven having never known Jesus himself, but believing in him anyway. I believe that Jesus went to hell when he died. I believe he preached to those in hell, and some were saved. I believe that he took the keys to hell away from Satan and went to heaven. At his resurrection, those who were dead and believed in Him (even those who believed in the symbolic Jesus of animal sacrifices) went to heaven as well (they had been in hell up to the point of Jesus' resurrection). What say all of you? Is this scriptural? Accurate? Inaccurate? Of course I have scriptures to back up all of these beliefs and will share them to defend my position in time.
