“God did not save us from a safe distance. He did not deal with our guilt and corruption and alienation from him and enslavement to sin in a superficial way. He bore all of it. He exhausted the penalty that we deserve. he face it up close, where its twisted character and insidious power is most keenly felt by us. In the weakness and humiliation of the cross, the sovereign God triumphed over it all and has left no aspect of it intact. God is completely and utterly Saviour. Those who are his have absolutely nothing to fear. Jesus has the keys of death and Hades.”Mark Thompson, “The Descent of Christ Into Hell” in Churchman (2019:133/1), 20.
