I found out Jesus went to hell for 3 days Matthew 12:40 KJV For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.


In the heart of the earth means that He was in the tomb, not in hell. For Him, hell was when He was on the cross, taking upon Himself all the sins of the world, from Adam and Eve to the very end of time. Imagine your own sins, being put on Jesus, and then multiply that by billions and billions of people. Jesus never sinned, He was perfect, yet He was willing to take our sins, pay the price with His own blood, and thereby give us salvation and eternal life as a free gift. The worst thing for Him, was being so covered by sin, drowning in it, becoming sin, so that it seemed to Him that He had been abandoned by His Father. That was hell for Him.

Mark 15:34   And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

Isaiah 53:6     All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

2 Corinthians 5:21   For He (God the Father) made Him who knew no sin (Jesus) to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

1 Peter 2:24      who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.

I hope that this makes sense to you. God bless!
