In the Apostle’s Creed it says Jesus rose twice. How is this possible?

Question:

In the Apostle&#039;s Creed it says Jesus rose twice. How is this possible?<br />

Answer:

Jesus rose from the dead only once. The Apostle’s Creed says:

  1. He descended into hell.
  2. The third day he arose again from the dead.
  3. He ascended into heaven.

Think of it in this way: Jesus descended (went down) into hell, then on the third day he rose “again” (came up again) from the dead. After Jesus came up from the “dead,” the Creed says “He ascended into heaven.” Thus, Christ rose from the dead only once.
