Christ’s Commando Raid on Hell

What are you doing this holiday week-end between Good Friday and Easter Day? I'm sure it cannot compare to what Christ did. I had not really thought about the time between the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, but I saw this interesting article from the UMC.

There are several guesses about what may have happened - including Jesus going to hell as part of His whole earthly experience. If you believe He went to hell, then you might wonder what He did there... which leads us to Christ’s commando raid on hell:
"A whole mythology arose about Jesus rescuing people from the netherworld after the crucifixion. The Gospel of Nicodemus, which dates to the third century and did not make the Bible cut, offers a narrative of Jesus retrieving Adam and other Old Testament figures from Satan’s clutches."
One more mystery of faith. Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Happy Easter!

For the record, I'm giving up soft drinks and tea for Lent. I don't drink a ton, so this is more about discipline than sacrifice this year.

The Cost of Faith

Powerful faith... I don't know if my faith is that strong. I can't help thinking about my family and not wanting to miss a minute.
