In further estimating its bearing upon the problem of the local conditions of the disembodied life after death, the parabolic character of the representation must be taken into account. I feel I cannot get enough of the Word. Then there came into the midst another, an ascetic from the desert; and the patriarchs said to him: Who are you?
The Second Council mandated the use of the Creed in the Sunday liturgy. After being emptied of the dead, Hades and death are thrown into the in. The godly dead are with Jesus in a disembodied state also called Hades. 10 For Thou wilt not abandon my soul to Sheol; Neither wilt Thou allow Thy Holy One to undergo decay. Do you know what the mark of the beast is directly from the Bible? Hades, then, is a temporary place.
He was quickened in His spirit, in which quickened spirit He went down into hell and preached to the spirits in prison [1 Peter 3:19]. I think you are probably right about the three youths on the right.
While, then, He was hanging upon the cross, I, seeing the miracles that were done, believed in Him, and entreated Him, and said, Lord, when You shall Christ in Hades King, do not forget me. Obviously then, Sheol cannot be the grave here as the body and soul are in different places, the soul going to Sheol while the body remains unburied, or outside of the grave vs.
Slaves are not free, and whoever commits sin is a slave or prisoner to sin, Christ in Hades have no freedom. The Old Testament Sheol, while formally resembling the Greek Hades in that it is the common receptacle of all the dead, differs from it, on the one hand, by the absence of a clearly defined division into two parts, and, on the other hand, by the emphasis placed on its association with death and the grave as abnormal facts following in the wake of sin.
Now, when I look at the text in its context, why Peter writes such a thing, it is very evident, and also in its evidency corroborates what the text exegetically actually says.
And to the right, we again see more New Covenant people. Augustine wrote this letter because even back then there were people who doubted that Christ descended to Hades.
When we consider the context, it is clear the Lord used this word in reference to the place of everlasting punishment for the wicked dead and not to the city dump.
I think this makes best sense of the passage given the context, and the language Peter uses elsewhere in the letter.
