Where Was Jesus Between the Three Days Between His Death and Resurrection?

I know that in "1 Thessalonians 5:23" the Apostle clearly mentions that a person be blameless in body, soul, and spirit. This three part nature of a person clearly is different after death where the body as we know it is no more. God's righteousness applied to those before the time of Grace when at the time of Noah the flood destroyed most of mankind. After Christ's sacrificial death, Jesus could offer Grace to all including those who had previously undergone His righteous judgement. This illustrates that He is the God of the living and the dead. In Romans 14 it is further states that Christ is the Lord of the living and dead "For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living." If everyone's knee must bow to Him then it is reasonable to summarize that the testimony of God's grace is also required for the dead. Regarding Jesus testimony to the fallen angles that you reference: After 1/3rd of the angels fell away from their high estate; the 2/3rds remaining, who were willing to follow, were deemed worthy and submitted eternally to the Father's will; the remainder, followed the evil one into (for lack of a better term) "hell" and became a spiritual plague on mankind. God's grace covers all, except those who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31-32 ... the three in one nature of God still applies here). This being the case, it is clear that no redemption is available to those in this unredeemable category (including angels). When we read of Jesus at the last judgement, we see many others added to this group and then thrown into the lake of fire and eternal separation from God. The key to all this is God's Grace and a person's ability to bow before the Savior, Christ Jesus (living and/or dead)

Yes, the Bible DOES plainly say! Medieval fables have clouded our thinking to the point where what is plainly there seems clouded. As for the preaching to the spirits, it has nothing to do with where Jesus went after His death. Read the text! There' nothing there about His death! Jesus Himself plainly said where he would be on the very day of His death, when He told the thief, "Today you will be WITH ME IN PARADISE." Paradise is not hell.
