He Descended

What was Jesus doing on Holy Saturday? Well, the Creed says he descended into "Hades". This is not Hell, or what was known as "Gehenna" the place of eternal punishment made for the devil and his demons. It is "Sheol" the place of the dead where they awaited the Messiah. Too often English speakers get the two places confused, as if they are the same place.

That said, I still enjoyed this cartoon despite th common misunderstanding.
