“Since the hour when Christ defeated Hades, men have danced in triumph over death. ‘O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?’ Hades and the devil have been defeated, and stripped of their ancient armor, and cast out of their special authority.”

I love to think of this image. Christ going down into hell and stripping the devil of his power over dust and death.

If you’ve never listed to it, I highly recommend an episode of the Lord of Spirits podcast in which the host recounts and uncannonical telling of Christ’s storming and defeating of hell. IT’S AMAZING. I’ve provided the link. Thanks for sharing this, Cody. This was a great read!
