God has given us the image of Christ descending into hell, kicking open the doors, being victorious over the demons for our comfort. This doctrine doesn’t stand alone. It’s tied to His incarnation, life, death, and resurrection. When we try to make logical sense of Christ’s descent into hell, we end up putting victory right back into the Satan’s hands. Because when we describe it as Scripture does, it doesn’t necessarily make a lot of rational sense. But at least we still end up focusing on Christ, and Him preaching victory over sin, death, and the devil. And that’s right where we should end up: talking proclaiming Jesus, the Gospel for the comfort of troubled consciences.
