He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried. He descended into hell...
Today is the proof that he tasted death. And here's the thing with death: you don't get the full flavour unless you drain the cup, right down to the bottom. There is the bitterness, in the last swallow. There is the vile taste that catches in the throat. He tasted death.
For everyone. He drank it down for everyone,
And he will swallow up on this mountain
the covering that is cast over all peoples,
the veil that is spread over all nations.
