Jesus fulfilled the prophecy of Isiah.<quoted text>
Ahhhhhh....then why was BJ, your mangod preaching to the dead when he was supposed to be missing for a couple of days after the cruci-fiction?
Will your answer be..."you are ignorant of god, alex"?
Isaiah 24:21-22 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited."
The gospel was preached even to the dead. The descent into hell brings the Gospel message of salvation to complete fulfilment. This is the last phase of Jesus' messianic mission, a phase which is condensed in time but vast in its real significance: the spread of Christ's redemptive work to all men of all times and all places, for all who are saved have been made sharers in the redemption.
