Jesus didn’t preach in hell
1 Peter 3
After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits— to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, v19-20.

I just don’t believe he went to hell to preach salvation. There can’t be salvation in death.
I just don’t believe he went to hell to gloat and punch his fist and say “stick that!” Why do that?
More importantly what good is this piece of information to those who are suffering right now as Peter’s generation were.
I believe this:
Noah suffered as he told people about God’s Kingdom and calling them to repent. Christ was speaking through him in his generation. He suffered but was delivered from the flood along with only 8 in total (not a great revival!)
Jesus suffered though he was sinless. Yet he was delivered and raised by God.
The point is we will suffer as we witness and as Christ speaks through us. But no matter how good the results are we will be delivered by God. Glory awaits.

  1. He descended and preached the gospel of the kingdom to those who waited patiently in paradise, those who lived by and held on in obedience to God or held to the old Covenant waiting for His coming.
    Part of the work of redemption involved taking back the keys:
    Revelation 1:18
    I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

    Jesus opened the door of Hell and pronounced judgment to those in hell, it was a legal declaration of final judgment in the lake of fire. The Kingship of God was re established on earth God would now reign through King Jesus Christ and reestablish His rule through kingdom leaders and the Church/His Kingdom People. After His resurrection the saints of old were raised with Him from paradise. They were seen preaching in Jerusalem, He then led captivity captive and took them to heaven with Him, declaring
    Psalm 24:7-10
    Lift up your heads, O gates,
    And be lifted up, ancient doors,
    That the King of glory may come in.
    Who is the King of glory?
    The Lord strong and mighty,
    The Lord mighty in battle.
    Lift up your heads, O gates,
    And lift them up, ancient doors,
    That the King of glory may come in.
    Who is [He then] this King of glory?
    The Lord of hosts,
    He is the King of glory [who rules over all creation with His heavenly armies]. Selah.

    Ephesians 4:8
    Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

    At this point in the ascension all the Saints of old entered into Heaven and Heaven’s doors were opened forever! Amen

    (basic sketch from scripture, there are many more scriptures that can point to this interpretation)
