Where was Jesus for the three days between his death and resurrection

Where was Jesus for the three days between His death and resurrection?
The death of Jesus and resurrection
A key entry in the discourse on where Jesus was for the three days in the middle of His death and resurrection is 1 Peter 3:18– 19, which says, "Christ likewise languished once over sins, the upright for the wicked, that he may convey us to God, being executed in the substance yet made alive in the soul, in which he went and declared to the spirits in jail" (ESV). The word soul alludes to Christ's soul. The complexity is between His fragile living creature and soul, and not between Christ's fragile living creature and the Holy Spirit. Christ's substance kicked the bucket, yet His soul stayed alive. Jesus' body was in the tomb, obviously, yet His soul, having withdrawn at His demise (Matthew 27:50), was somewhere else for those three days.

Diminish gives a tad of explicit data about what occurred in those three days between Jesus' passing and restoration. The KJV says that Jesus "lectured" to the spirits in jail (1 Peter 3:19). The Greek word utilized just implies that Jesus "proclaimed a message"; the NIV deciphers it as "made announcement." Jesus endured and passed on the cross, His body being killed. Be that as it may, His soul was as yet alive, and He yielded it to the Father (Luke 23:46). As per Peter, at some point between Jesus' passing and His restoration Jesus made an extraordinary declaration to some detained spirits.

Where were these detained spirits to whom Jesus talked between His demise and restoration? No place in the Bible are we informed that Jesus visited hellfire. The possibility that Jesus went to hellfire so as to proceed with His enduring is deceptive; His enduring finished when He stated, "It is done" upon the cross (John 19:30). The New American Standard Bible says that Jesus went to "Hades" (Acts 2:31), however Hades isn't damnation. Hades is a term that alludes, extensively, to the domain of the dead, a transitory place where the dead anticipate revival. Disclosure 20:11– 15 in the NASB and the NIV makes a reasonable refinement among Hades and the pool of flame. The pool of flame is the changeless, last place of judgment for the lost. Hades is a brief place for both the lost and the Old Testament holy people.

Our Lord Jesus yielded His soul to the Father, kicked the bucket physically, and entered heaven, as He had guaranteed the cheat on the cross (Luke 23:43). Sooner or later between His demise and restoration, Jesus additionally visited a place where He conveyed a message to soul creatures—most likely fallen holy messengers (see Jude 1:6); these spirits were presumably detained in light of the fact that they were by one way or another engaged with an unfortunate sin before the surge in Noah's time (1 Peter 3:20). Subside does not disclose to us what Jesus announced to the detained spirits, however it couldn't have been a message of recovery, since holy messengers can't be spared (Hebrews 2:16). What Jesus announced was most likely an affirmation of His triumph over Satan and his hosts (1 Peter 3:22; Colossians 2:15).

Ephesians 4:8– 10 may provide another insight with respect to Jesus' exercises in the three days between His passing and restoration. Citing Psalm 68:18, Paul says about Christ, "When he rose on high, he took numerous prisoners" (Ephesians 4:8). The ESV puts it that Christ "drove a large group of prisoners." This could allude to an occasion not somewhere else portrayed in Scripture, specifically, that Jesus assembled all the recovered who were in heaven and took them to their lasting staying in paradise. That is, in the wake of anchoring their salvation on the cross, Jesus brought Abraham, David, Joshua, Daniel, the bum Lazarus, the criminal on the cross, and every other person who had recently been legitimized by confidence, and drove them from Hades to their new profound home.

The majority of this is to state that the Bible isn't completely clear what precisely Christ improved the situation the three days between His passing and restoration. From what we can tell, however, He completed two things: He console the left holy people and conveyed them to their everlasting home, and He announced His triumph over the fallen blessed messengers who are kept in jail. What we can be sure of is that Jesus was not allowing anybody another opportunity for salvation; we confront judgment after death (Hebrews 9:27), not another opportunity. Additionally, Jesus was not enduring in hellfire; His work of recovery was done on the cross.
