who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Rather, Jesus went to the place of the dead known in the Old Testament as “Abraham’s bosom” or “Sheol. There he proclaimed the
good news of the Resurrection to those who died in pre- Christian times so everyone would have the opportunity to repent and believe in him as Savior and Lord. And then “on the third day he rose again from the dead.” As a result, the new translation emphasizes that through his passion and resurrection Christ overcame death itself.
