Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus descended into Abraham’s Bosom, also known as Paradise, a compartment of Hades, the underworld.

Hades has four known compartments: Paradise, The Torments, Tartarus, and The Abyss.

In OT times, the souls of believers descended to Paradise, while the souls of unbelievers were placed in the Torments until the 2nd resurrection and Great White Throne Judgment.

The Abyss and Tartarus are confines of fallen angels with the most criminal confined to the Abyss.

When God the Father released the human spirit of Jesus Christ and God the Holy Spirit brought the soul of Christ back to his body in the tomb and they joined and resurrected, He left Hades and later ascended to Heaven.

Believers when they die today are face to face with the Lord.

Imaginative indeed! Unscriptural but nonetheless imaginative. And unfortunately not “Following the truth” as no such “compartments” are called part of Hades, Sheol in the Scriptures and Christ was resurrected as a spirit person not as spirit plus body united according to Paul in 1 Cor. 15.

Speaking of God’s word, Jesus called it the “truth” to follow as at 1 Cor. 15:45,50.
