Sheol, is the ground and Jesus was buried so yes he did go to sheol just like everyone else.

Paradise, a place for the righteous to wait for the resurrection. It is not heaven or God's kingdom. To say you return to Jesus after death, means you deny the judgment. everyone will be judged according to every word, thought and action done on the earth. why does everyone deny the judgment? perhaps people fear it. Not everyone that says lord lord and professes His name will return to God. it is easier to ignor something that will condemn them and the way they lived.

Debbie; All your fancy footwork is tied to the erroneous belief that the dead are still alive! Sheol (Heb) is the exact equivelent to the Greek (hades) common grave of man. Upper and lower are directly from Roman mythology.(actually they had 4) There's no FIRE in sheol or hades! Tarteus (hell) is the place of demon captivity (dense darkness)Gehenna is used figuratively (garbage dump)

#1 Jesus preached to the spirits in prison - 1 Peter 3:19. He brought them up & took them to heaven with Him - Eph. 4:8,9; Rom. 10:7,8; Matt. 27:52,53. Paradise is now in the heavens - II Cor. 12:2-4; Rev. 2:7; 22:2. Compare II Cor.5:6,8; Phil. 1:23; I Thes. 4:14; II tim. 1:10. the Hebrew word "sheol" expressed the abode of the dead. It comes from a root word that means "to make hallow". It is correctly translated "hell." Job. 11:8; Psalm 9:17; 139:8; Prov. 23:14; Amos 9:2.

#2 Sheol was comprised of two compartments: upper and lower sheol. Upper Sheol was the abode of the righteous dead, also called "Abraham's bosom" - Luke 16:23 &"Paradise" in Luke 23:43. Lower sheol is the abode of the wicked dead - Deut. 32:22; Ps. 86:13; Prov. 9:18; 15:24; Is. 14:9. "Hades", & "gehenna" are translated "hell". Hades answers to the lowest sheol, it is the present abode of the wicked dead - Matt. 11:23; 16:18; Rev. 6:8; 20:13,14.

#3 "Upper hades" or "paradise" was the abode of the righteous dead - Acts 2:27,31; Luke 23:43; with Ps. 16:10. "Gehenna" (from the Valley of Hinnom) - Jer. 7:31; 19:2-6, will be the final abode of the wicked - Matt. 3:12; 5:22,29,30; 10:28; 18:9;23:15,23; Mark 9:42-46; Rev. 20:10,14,15; 21:8.

As the Orthodox church sings at this time of year: "In the tomb with the body, in Hades (sheol) with the soul, in Paradise with the Penitent Thief, on the Throne with the Father and the Spirit, were You, O Christ, filling all things, bounded by none."

No, Jesus went to hell in your place so that you don't have too. Then he took the keys and loosed those souls imprisoned in hell.

Only if you believe as the first Christians did- it's right there in the original version of both the Nicene and Apostle's creeds. Of course if you're a Protestant, then your religion didn't start until 1500 and is limited to Sola Scriptura- in which case only if you've read Paul's letters.

The Bible does not say specifically if Jesus went to Sheol but it does say that he decended into Hell. Speculating, I would have to believe that Jesus experienced anything that any human may be able to ever experience so my guess would be that he went through Sheol as well. Blessings, Jody

Eph 4:9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
Eph 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

Apostle's creed?
I won't say if I think so but I think I gave a hint.
---Pharisee on 4/5/07

Yes. He preached to the spirits in prison. The spirits were demons. When Jesus said It was finished on the cross. Satan and his demons knew that was the end of Christ. Christ went to let them know that he is alive and he took the keys of the Kingdom. I know I will have people argue with me, but oh well.
---Rebecca_D on 4/5/07

Yes, He did.
