WHERE DID JESUS GO AFTER HE DIED ON THE CROSS?
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
[The Bible does not specifically state what happened to Jesus immediately after He died on the cross. Because of this, there is debate surrounding the answer to the question of where He went and what He did. So, let’s see what the bible says about differing views so we might know the scope of the answer and decide for ourselves which position is preferable!] “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: BY WHICH ALSO HE WENT AND PREACHED UNTO THE SPIRITS IN PRISON; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.” (1 Pet. 3:18-20) [One view where Jesus was and what He did before His resurrection is that He went to Hades and made proclamation to those who were in spiritual prison. The word “proclamation” in Greek is kerusso. It means to proclaim and is a different word than “euaggelizo” which means to preach the gospel. Therefore, it is most probable that Jesus was not preaching the gospel to those in Hades/Spirit prison so they could be saved but was instead proclaiming the truth to them. After all, the Bible says:] “Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment…” (Heb. 9:27) [So who were the ones in spiritual prison? Some believe it is the people who were alive at the time of Noah’s flood and who were killed in the flood. Others believe it is all humanity who died before the time of the cross. There seems to be support for the former position in!] “For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others…” (2 Pet. 2:4-5) [As far as the other option goes, that Jesus simply presented the facts concerning His work on the cross to those in spiritual prison, we can look to Ephesians 4] “This is why it says: “When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.” (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also DESCENDED TO THE LOWER, EARTHLY REGIONS?” (Eph. 4:8-9) [It’s not real clear what Jesus did or where He went, but we know that it was a Godly mission, for good purpose because that’s Christ’s nature!] “For God SO GREATLY LOVED and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but HAVE ETERNAL (EVERLASTING) LIFE.” (John 3:16)

    Great Question. I know our spirit and soul goes back to God. Until Resurrection day Or he comes for His Bride. But He is The Groom. I believe His body stayed in the Grave for three day. Like He said would be like Jonah in the whales belly. His Body stayed in the grave. And I believe His Spirit and soul went to The Father. From there to preach to the captives free , Who the devil held in captivity. Then went to where the devil and took the keys from Satan. And on that third day he arose. Brought some of the captives out of captivity when He came out of the grave. That’s when paradise was moved from Abraham bosom to where God is. Because the Bible says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. And When He came out of the grave. He came out with His Resurrected Body. And appeared to Mary. She told the disciples. And he stayed around for about40 days. Appearing to different Places. Then He assented Bach to the Father. And many saw Him as He went up. Two Angels dressed in white. Said, Why stand he here gazing up into the Heavens. This same Jesus is Coming Back Again. Just Like You Have Seen Him Go. He went up in a closed. When He comes for the dead in Christ. He will come back in a cloud. Just like you have seen him go. I hope you can understand all this. It’s sure a mixed answer.the only way I knew how to explain it.

    What happened to Preaching to Captivity’s Captives in Paradise?

    Jesus was born and lived his life as a man while on this earth. He did not assume his new immortal body until after the resurrection. All of the holy souls before, like Lazarus, were received into “Abraham’s bosom.” As in life, Jesus, the man, in death also was received into this place. HOWEVER, he like no others there, had never sinned, and Satan had no right to hold him. His holiness was the key to open the gates of hell. Proclaiming himself as Messiah to all of the people in this place allowed the captives to be set free. No longer bound to stay in Abraham’s bosom, the redeemed souls made their way to heaven, as Jesus returned to arise from the death, and assume his role as the risen Christ. I don’t see how it could be any other way.

    Ricky Grimsley but we dont have a direct reference about Jesus going to hell per se?

      All OT jewish saints went into Abraham’s bosum before the establishment of the New Covenant. Jesus was born and died as a jewish man, so he would have to go there too. Only proof you need that he entered hell.

    I used that because that’s where the devil is. And He took them from Satan.
