    1peter 3:18-20 "for christ also suffered once for our sins,the just for the unjust,that he might bring us to god,being put to death in the fleshgut made alive by spirit.
    by whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prision".(hell)
    Jesus was in (Sheol) the common grave of all mankind, That is to say he was dead and conscious of nothing at all. Ecc 9v5

    Sheol is a Hebrew word, the equivalent the Greek word Hades.
    However some translations use the words 'Hell' and 'pit' which can be a little confusing.

    This is not to be confused with the word Gehenna which means a death from which no resurrection is possible. Not to be confused as Dante's inferno as taught by false religious teachers usually mis-translated as hell-fire.

    When Jesus promised the evil doer next to him th he would be with him in Paradise he did not mean that is was to be on the same 24 hour day or that the thief would get a heavenly resurrection since he had NOT served God or done anything to merit it. He was referring to the general resurrection of the human race which has not yet begun.

    I hope this answers your question, but if not I will be happy to hear constructive polite comments.

    Kind regards
    it says in the Bible that He went down to hell to check it out.

    In Acts 2, Peter speaks of the resurrection and quotes Psalm 16:10: “You will not leave my soul in hell.” This would indicate that Jesus spent time “in hell.” However, the Hebrew word used in the psalm is accurately translated “the grave,” and Jesus was clearly in the grave.

    Amazing Colleen well done!
    Now you just need to get the other bits right.
    In Judgment, a process we all go through.
    I was about to give my own answer then I found this which I think is balanced:

    and what's your answer?

    I agree, which is why I used this ;-)
    He was most likely hiding from the bible-bashers.

    The bible hadn't been pieced together yet.
