What did Jesus do in the tomb for 3 days?

I'm confused about Jesus raising people from the dead and them going to heaven. When Jesus died did he just sleep like we will be doing?

Perhaps we can ask Him that one day. Until then, the topic of soul sleep leads to lots of conjecture.

Welcome Betsy!

I'm not clear about where you're confused! Could you tell us some more about what you were reading or listening to that confused you? What sparked your question?

I don't yet see the relationship between "what Jesus did when he died" and Jesus raising other people. Could you help me with that?

I think He was in abraham's bosom preaching to those in prison. Got a lot of sighed reliefs that the old covenant was replaced with the new. Went to hell to show the devil who was, is, and will be in command. Got the keys to hell and death, declared the sting of death swallowed up in victory. Pondered about going back to see His disciples and get them ready to be filled with the Holy Ghost, fiyah, and power, so that they could be the apostles and start the long string of making a spectacle out of the devil and trample upon serpents and scorpions and all the works of the enemy. Hallelujah, what a beautiful and glorious plan.

Thank you, Jesus.

He did nothing because He was dead. There are is no knowledge, love or praise in the grave, only silence.

Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 For the living know that they will die; but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished; nevermore will they have a share in anything done under the sun.

ummm really? Jesus, who is God.. God who is immortal, cannot die nor be killed, yet you suggest that he was dead? How about we don't know because we don't have enough info.... If Jesus whom most believe was God, then he could not have been "dead."

One subtext is that entertaining Jesus not "sleeping at death" can lead down the slippery slope of humans not sleeping at death. Oh the horrors. This is an SDA prized possession. We insist that Grandpa is not looking down on us and scowling because we are drinking martinis and dancing at the nightclub (I wanted to get three no-nos in one outing.)

If you look at much of Christianity, and Adventism specifically, there is a consistent symbolism around helplessness and deferral of action/accountability because it's "out of our hands."
