Did Jesus Burn In Hell for 3 Days and 3 Nights?

Q: Did Jesus burn in Hell for 3 days and 3 nights?
A: Jesus descended into Paradise in Hell, but did not burn in Hell.

Psalms 16:10
Old Testament saints' souls went down after death, not up.
No contradiction to Ecclesiastes 3:21 as spirits, not soul, go up.
Acts 2:27 applies this to the death of Christ.

Luke 16:19-31
Story of rich man, and Lazarus
Abraham's bosom/Paradise of the Old Testament saints, fiery hell was across it in a gulf and thus separate, but both hell + paradise as one were considered hell.
Ephesians 4:8-10
Jesus descending, but never says He went to the part that was burning.
The captives here are the Old Testament saints.

Luke 23:43
Jesus says to the thief he will be with Him in Paradise.
This is not heaven because He did not ascend to the Father yet according to John 20:17, hence this means He descended to Paradise next to hell.

I Peter 3:18-20
What Jesus did underneath the Earth along with taking captivity captive is preaching to the spirits in prison who were disobedient before the Flood.

2 Corinthians 12:4 + Revelation 2:7 Paradise from below now transported to Heaven above then New Jerusalem of Heaven transported to the Earth
