What happened between the crucifixion and resurrection?
In traditional Christian belief, this period between the death and rising of Jesus is referred to as the harrowing of hell. … The Greek text says that after his death “Christ descended to the lowest,” which is rendered into modern English as either “he descended to the dead” or “he descended into hell.”
What did Jesus do while his body was in the tomb?
Another main activity, while his body lay in the tomb, was to visit the spirits of those who had died. He said on one occasion, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.” (John 5:25.)
