Day 2
If Jesus Christ died, was buried and descended into Hell on Friday, Day 1, and rose from the dead on Sunday, Day 3, what went on on Saturday, Day2? As long as I have recited the Creed I have always wondered.

RE: Day 2
According to 1 Peter 3:18-21, 4:6 he went and preached to the spirits in prison so that 'they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit'

This suggests that those who did not have the opportunity to receive the gospel in this live for no fault of their own, will receive it in the next live prior to the resurrection. Sounds pretty fair to me.

RE: Day 2
Agreed with Requiem, and in fact, this is an old Christian doctrine known rather well as the "Harrowing of Hell". Often times the imagery of the doctrine focuses on the notion that Jesus went to the Spirit World to free all the spirits in prison and thus defeated Satan, giving full meaning to the word "redemption", for even those already dead were being redeemed.

That was the Shabbat. He rested. How could one do anything if one is at rest?

Apparently he was a workaholic and elected to ignore this practice.

Yep. Jesus was known for playing a bit fast and loose with the Sabbath, at least as it pertained to supernatural healings etc. outside of business hours.

If Jesus is God, then this question is moot.

If everyone was thinking the same thing, then no one would be thinking at all.

The Gospels clearly depict Jesus healing the sick on Shabbat while alive. Why assume he'd do any differently while dead?

He also gathered wheat on the Sabbath.
