Where was Jesus between His death & resurrection? What did Jesus mean when He said, "today you will be with me in paradise?" Today, sermons on the ascension of Christ are plentiful, but sermons on the descent of Christ are few. Yet the Bible contains powerful & encouraging truths concerning the descent of Christ to paradise, to announce victory OVER the kingdom of darkness, & victory FOR the kingdom of God. This announcement of Christ's victory to Hades still speaks to the church on earth today!
