In the Gospel of St. John 3, we read of the converted Pharisee Nicodemus. It so happens that this Christian convert has left us an account of Christ's descent into hell and the manner in which He communicated the merits of His Passion to the ot patriarchs to heal them of the last remnants of original sin tainting their person.https://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/lbob/lbob10.htmQuote
The archangel Michael farther commanded us to go beyond Jordan, to an excellent and fat country, where there are many who rose from the dead along with us for the proof of the resurrection of Christ.
5 For we have only three days allowed us from the dead, who arose to celebrate the passover of our Lord with our parents, and to bear our testimony for Christ the Lord, and we have been baptized in the holy river of Jordan. And now they are not seen by any one.
6 This is as much as God allowed us to relate to you; give ye therefore praise and honour to him, and repent, and he will have mercy upon you. Peace be to you from the Lord God Jesus
