Jesus (Really) Descended Into Hell

Scott Paeth:

One needn’t believe in an literal, or at least eternal, view of hell and damnation in order to believe in the importance of Christ’s descent into hell. On the contrary, one may believe that Christ’s redemptive activity is precisely that which saves us from the hell that he himself suffered. He deprived hell of its enternity, not to rescue us from divine wrath, but from our own experience of god-abandonment.
