Our faith teaches that Jesus descended to the dead (hell) for 3 days. this was to preach the Gospel to those that had died before his coming.
He did not descend to Gehenna, the place of eternal fire and damnation, where Satan rules. Those souls cannot be saved. There's lots of folks who hear that word and automatically think Gehenna, but it's not the same place. A more realistic saying would be; Jesus descended to the dead for 3 days.
