WLC Q.50: Wherein consisted Christ’s humiliation after his death?
Christ’s humiliation after his death consisted in his being buried, (1 Cor. 15:3–4) and continuing in the state of the dead, and under the power of death till the third day; (Ps. 16:10, Acts 2:24–27,31, Rom. 6:9, Matt. 12:40) which hath been otherwise expressed in these words, He descended into hell.
