Does 1 Peter 3:18-22 teach that Jesus descended into hell and preached to the dead there? There has been an ongoing debate over the years about whether Jesus went to hell and proclaimed the gospel or his spirit went to the Father upon his death (Luke 23:22, 26). The article discusses one of the views that is widely accepted concerning what happened to Jesus between the crucifixion and resurrection.
This article is an exposition of Luke 23:39-43.
Looking at Luke 23:41-42, this article shows that the way Desiderius Erasmus treated the text did not do it justice. The dying thief who received forgiveness is not an example of "mere Christianity." The text shows that the thief knew a lot about Christ and His kingdom. The author of this article argues that the thief could have learned this from his childhood; thus, this text can be used to encourage parents in their parenting call.
