Did Jesus go to Hell?

I have heard it said in the past that when Jesus died that day He spent the next three days in hell fire to pay for our sins. The same flames that He told us the rich man found himself in when he died (Luke 16:23,24). Hog wash! Pardon my language. If that were the case the Bible would have specifically said so, but it does not. Instead the Bible tells that Jesus promised the thief on the cross next to Him that “To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43).
No flames are recorded in paradise according to Luke 16:23-26.
So Jesus dying that painful, shameful, humiliating, and agonizing death on the cross and after He was dead His precious blood being shed is what paid our sin debt. He then ascended and place His very blood on the mercy seat in Heaven (Hebrews 9:12) because without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins (Hebrews 9:22). And God required the shed blood to be placed on the mercy seat, Leviticus 16:15.
Sheol is the abode of the dead and is the Hebrew word for what we call Hell, though our interpretation of Hell is some what off. It had two parts to it. The side with the flames and torments where a person stays until they are called to stand before the Great White Throne of Judgement, Revelation 20:12-15. And the paradise side which those who died in faith went to, Luke 16:22; 23:43.
In conclusion, no Jesus didn’t burn for one second in Hell. He didn’t have to get the keys to Death and Hell either. He received them for His victory on Calvary.
However if you do not know Jesus as your personal savior one day you will go to that place of flames. Now is the time to confess that you are a sinner, believe that Jesus can save you from Hell if you ask Him to, and then ask Him.
