JOHN: Chapter one tells us that Jesus is GOD and He created all things. That means that somewhere back before time started GOD created Satan. When Jesus went into the heart of the earth, (Matt. 12-40 says that Jesus would spend three days and three nights in the heart of the earth).
I have read the account of this scripture, written by several different writers, that Jesus went into hell to fight with the devil for the souls of mankind. If Satan was defeated at the cross, why would Jesus have to go fight with him? If Satan was not defeated at the cross, then why didn’t Jesus just go into Hell and fight with Satan and skip the cross. To me, none of these accounts of this scripture add up.
