Up from the grave he arose

Posted by zazenduckie on April 8, 2007, at 9:49:18

Low in the grave he lay,
Jesus my Savior,
waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!


Up from the grave he arose;
with a mighty triumph o'er his foes;
he arose a victor from the dark domain,
and he lives forever, with his saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose


I hope all of us struggling in the darkness find some joy and hope this cold Easter morning! I've been singing this myself...be glad we don't have audio posting :)

zazenduckie,
In your post above, I am unsure as to some aspects of it as to the identification/clarification of the following. If you could clarify/identify such, then I could have the opportuity to respond accordingly.
A. in,[...triunph o'er his foes...]
1.who are the {foes]?
B. in,[...with his {saints} to {reign}...] 1. who are the saints?
2. could you clarify what the [reign} entails?
C. othe relevant clarifications/identifications
I would like to post a response to your post but I think that if I had more information concerning about what you wrote that I could post a better response.
Lou

We used to sing that hymn all the time in my church when I was a kid.

Thanks for the good memory.

In the Apostolic Creed there is this stuff that feels like Jesus was in a cosmic elevator.
He dies, then descends into hell, then rises from the dead.
A minister explained it to me once, which of course I have forgotten.
Something to do with the Greek background maybe?

I think the 'foes' thing is about death.
I quite understand why we are frightened of it, but feel uneasy about wanting to conquer it.

The whole hell, sheol(sp?), hades thing is very interesting.
I would like to have been told by my parents to study theology.

Maybe he goes down into hell to collect (at least some of) the souls of the dead?

But hell as in the older Jewish(???) or Greek version, rather than what we think of when we hear the word.

It's a good memory for me too :) It reminds me of my grandaddy.

I recently read a book
"The Last Week: A Day-by-Day Account of Jesus's Final Week in Jerusalem" that said that the resurrection of the dead was a relatively recent development in Jewish theology in the time of Jesus. It said it had begun about 2 centuries before Christ as an answer to when righteous jews who were killed (around the time of the Maccabees) would be rewarded. I think it would be the older definition of Hell that you mentioned,.
