Did Jesus Go To Hell The Saturday After Good Friday?

Did Jesus go to hell after the Cross? In short, no, I don’t believe he did. This idea creates a snakepit of theological problems, and more than that, not only is it not biblically supported, it derives from a line in the Apostles’ Creed that was added much later than the original versions of the Creed.

John Piper has a great article on the biblical reasons to reject this idea.  And our new church website has a brief note on our Apostles’ Creed page explaining why, from a textual perspective, it’s best to omit that line entirely.
