Resurrection. Descent into Hell

Artist: Yuri Kuznetsov.

The descent into hell completes the expiatory mission of Jesus Christ. While the body of Christ was in the tomb His human soul descended to the depths of hell and preached to the souls of the deceased thereby setting them free. The Savior led the souls of Old Testament righteous people out including Adam and Eve. There is almost no mention in the canonical Gospels about the descent of Jesus Christ to hell. This event is described in much more detail in the apocryphal Gospel according to Nicodemus.
