  1. No way! Such a fun surprise to see Christy’s dad (Dr. Moo!) impart his wisdom via your blog today. Fascinating stuff. I always assumed scripture pointed clearly to him descending into hell (as we recite in the Apostles’ Creed), but I see now how it’s questionable! Yet another mystery that will be made clear one day…. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes, a shout out to the Moo’s! 🙂 Your comments (and Mom brought it up today too) about the Apostles’ Creed caused me to ponder a bit more, and I found this helpful response on R.C. Sproul’s website. Basically, it affirms what you said, Laur, about an actual descent into hell being very questionable….we can’t know for sure, but we must be careful not to assume. http://www.ligonier.org/learn/qas/what-does-apostles-creed-mean-when-it-says-jesus-d/

  2. During the summer in OG when we recite the Apostle’s Creed the Methodists leave out “he descended into hell” but here at HPC we say it. I always liked the idea that Jesus went down to hell (as conquering death) and I pictured Him leaving our sins there and defending the church: “The gates of hell will not prevail against it.” But I so respect Dr. Moo I’ll have to do more study on this. Yes, this is a mystery that will all make sense some day!
