After crucification,where did Jesus soul went on saturday??

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 04-16-2017:

Dear Anon,

He descended into the lower world which in the Apostles' Creed is called hell. But it not the real hell but only the place where good people dwelt until Christ opened the Gate of Heaven for them.
