He Descended into Hell

Read Mark 15:16-39

Many misunderstand, and wrongly teach, this statement of the Apostles' Creed. It is not a chronological order of Christ's sufferings, but the theological understanding of his sufferings. Jesus "descended into hell" is a statement of what he endured in his crucifixion, death and burial - the full weight of judgment and God's wrath that our sins deserved. Listen to this message that explain what that now means for all who are in Christ Jesus.
