He was taken illegally by Satan into the bowels of the earth; but God proclaimed, "It is enough!" and Jesus came forth out of hell triumphant in the power of God! Our Covenant with God, pg 23.

Correction: Jesus Christ was always in control! (Matthew 26:53-54) "Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels? How then could the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must happen thus?"


When Jesus accepted the sin nature of Satan into His spirit, He cried, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" He was separated from God. He was ushered into the bowels of hell. Jesus suffered there and when the claims of justice were met God said, "It's enough."

Classic Redemption, pg 13.

Correction: Jesus Christ accepted no sin into Himself. (1 John 3:5) And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.

Correction: Jesus Christ suffered on the cross outside of Jerusalem. (Hebrews 13:12) Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate.

(1 Peter 2:22-24) "Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth"; who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 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.


He accepted the very nature of death itself and became mortal. He allowed the devil to drag Him into the depths of hell as if He were the most wicked sinner who ever lived. He submitted Himself to death. He allowed Himself to come under Satan's control. As soon as He took that step of obedience, every demon in hell came down on Him to annihilate Him. Psalm 22 calls them "the bulls of Bashan." They tortured Him beyond anything that anybody has ever conceived. Voice of Victory, September 1991, pg. 3.

Correction: The Son allowed the Father to pour on Him the sins of the world in obedience.

(Luke 22:41-42) And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed, saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done." (Romans 3:23-26) for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Correction: The "bulls of Bashan" were people mocking Jesus Christ when He was dying.

(Psalm 22:12-13) Many bulls have surrounded Me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled Me. They gape at Me with their mouths, Like a raging and roaring lion. (Mark 15:29-30) And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads and saying, "Aha! You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself, and come down from the cross!"

Correction: Jesus Christ proclaimed His victory in hell and freed righteous souls. (1 Peter 3:18-19) For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison. (Ephesians 4:8) Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive and gave gifts to men."
