@MonicaCellio - correct. In this parallel, chesed would correlate to divine discipline; that is, the chesed of a father toward a son through discipline.

comment Does Peter suggest Jesus “descended into hell”?
@MatthewMiller - irrespective of whatever year (it does not matter), Pentecost happened on the 50th day AFTER the day of Passover. In other words, if Passover was on Friday, then Pentecost was on Sunday. But if Passover, in fact, coincided with the Saturday Sabbath (as you indicate), then Pentecost would have occurred on a Monday. Again, the year per se is moot. In love, brother - Joseph

Last comment: If Pentecost had occurred on Sunday (the day of the giving of the Holy Spirit to the church), then the day AFTER Passover would have been Saturday, since the counting of fifty days to Pentecost starts on the day AFTER Passover (Lev 23:15-16). Thus Passover happened on a Friday (scenario above). In other words, if Passover had instead otherwise coincided with the "Saturday" Sabbath (as many Bible scholars maintain), then the giving of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost would have happened on a Monday morning, which would be fifty days following the day AFTER Passover "Saturday."

@MatthewMiller - The reason why this Hades thing is so important is because we see that the PERSON not only died physically, but spiritually as well. In Col 1:18 and Rev 1:5, he is "the firstborn from the dead," and the meaning in both verses includes spiritual death. He is the first one to emerge (be born) from spiritual death. While there are examples in the Old Testament and gospel accounts of people raised from physical death, none of them had ever emerged from the state of spiritual death, thus they eventually died again physically. Jesus was thus the first to emerge from spiritual death.

@MatthewMiller - Jesus compared his death on several occasions with Jonah. Please click here to see how this allusion relates to Jesus's descent to Hades (or Sheol). Also, my research indicates that 15 Nisan (Passover) fell on a Friday in AD 30. In fact, in my chart, the Passover never once fell on a Saturday between the years of AD 20 and AD 39.

@matthew - Do you believe that the Greek reading of Ephesians 4:9 supports that Jesus came "down" to the surface of the earth? It sounds that it may be that Jesus descended "into" the lower parts of the earth, which could mean inside of the earth. When Jonah descends "into" the lower parts of the earth (inside the Great Fish) we see the same Greek construct in the LXX.

@matthew - in the Hebrew Bible the Passover was a full-blown Sabbath day, and in AD 30, the Passover fell on a Thursday/Friday (15 Nisan). Jesus was crucified shortly before this Sabbath day had begun. Thus this Sabbath was not the "Saturday" Sabbath as many Christian scholars believe; no, it was the "Passover" Sabbath (Thursday/Friday), which was followed by the regular "Saturday" Sabbath (Friday/Saturday). In other words, Jesus was the Passover Lamb. Please see 1 Corinthians 5:7.
