"He descended into hell" (Special TSP Holy Saturday Podcast)

One of the most obscure phrases in the Creed is the line that speaks about Jesus' "descent into hell." This podcast explores this line as we look at the meaning of the Mystery of Holy Saturday.

  1. Thank you for clarifying. I'd held the incorrect belief that part of his descent was to purge him of the sins of all mankind. As you explain, this is inconsistent with his being true God and true man. I'm still a little confused on how he cleansed himself of our sins, but I suppose that if it was important to the faith it would have been revealed. Either that, or it was explained and I missed it. Happy Easter!
