Dear Catholic.com visitor: Summer is here, and you may be thinking about a well-deserved vacation, family get-togethers, BBQs with neighborhood friends. More than likely, making a donation to Catholic Answers is not on your radar right now. But this is exactly the time we most need your help. The “summer slowdown” in donations is upon us, but the work of spreading the gospel and explaining and defending the Faith never takes a break. Your gift today will change lives and save souls for Christ this summer! The reward is eternal. Thank you and God bless.

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

Question:

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

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.
