      Now, third, who or what are these spirits in prison? Ever since Clement of Alexandria (c A.D.), it has been common to hold that they are the departed spirits of preceding human generations, especially perhaps of the generation of Noah’s flood (representing the worst sinners of all). However, this is most unlikely. The spirits in prison in 1Pe are fallen angels - the angels God cast down to hell in 2Pe , and bound in chains in Jude They rebelled against God and sinned in the days of Noah, precipitating the flood that destroyed everyone on earth except Noah and his family (CP 1Pe with 2Pe ).

    In the Foreword to Bullinger’s book, Word Studies on the Holy Spirit, Warren W. Wiersbe wrote the following: He died in London on June 6, Most people remember him only for his beautiful tune for Frances Ridley Havergal’s hymn, “I am trusting Thee, Lord Jesus.”. 1 Peter –22, Preached to the spirits in prison. Did Yeshua preach to the spirits in prison while he was dead? No. Verse 18 states that Yeshua was put to death, was then quickened or made alive by the Spirit (i.e. was resurrected from the grave), and then, in the spirit, he went to preach to the spirits in prison.

    Unto the spirits in prison— The inhabitants of the antediluvian world, who, having been disobedient, and convicted of the most flagrant transgressions against God, were sentenced by his just law to destruction.

The sin the spirits in prison committed could be the one in Genesis –4, which records the “sons of God” mating with the “daughters of men” and producing a race of giants, the Nephilim. If the “sons of God” were fallen angels, then the sin of Genesis 6 involved angels leaving the place where they belonged in an act of.

Spirits in Prison. The spirits in prison are referred to in 1 Peterwhere Peter declares that they disobeyed in the time of Noah and that Christ went and preached to them in prison. This passage has often been identified as one of the most obscure in the entire New Testament.

New Testament. The subject takes its starting point from a Bible reference: 1 Peter –20 "By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; (20) Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, Spirits in prison book the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water."

In the spirit prison are the spirits of those who have not yet received the gospel of Jesus Christ. These spirits have agency and may be enticed by both good and evil.

Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; in which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison, that aforetime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls.
