Jesus made a proclamation to the spirits in prison…

Standard

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, in order to bring you to God. He was put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit, 19 in which also he went and made a proclamation to the spirits in prison…

We see in these verses the basis for a portion of the Apostle’s Creed that says of Jesus, “he descended to the dead (or hell)”. It was there that he “made a proclamation to the spirits in prison” (prison being a euphemism for hell). Yep, Jesus bore the full weight of our sin before being raised to life on the third day – including time in hell. It’s a humbling thing to ponder, don’t you think? Amazing love indeed.

Lord Jesus thank you for your submission and obedience to death that we might live. Amen.
