No Matter How Deep the Darkness He Descends Deeper Still: The Descent of Jesus into Hades
by Anthony M. Coniaris
Format: Soft Bound
One of the marvelous results of the death and resurrection of Jesus is expressed in the glorious and triumphant Descent of Jesus into Hades. This saving truth is mentioned more than 200 times in the joyous hymns of the Pentecostarion and more than 150 times in the troparia sung on Sundays and other feast days of the year. It is a glorious truth that is emphasized in Scripture, the Church Fathers, hymnology, in the processions of Holy Saturday, and, most graphically of all, in the magnificent icon of the Descent of Jesus into Hades. This book shows how Jesus continues to descend into our personal hells today to extricate us, reconcile with God, fill us with the Holy Spirit and unite us with God.
