“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
King James Version (KJV)

Dearest Margaret. As a newly born again practicing Christian, and from what studies I've thusly made in the KJV Bible, also personal lessons from my Bible Teacher... Christ Yeshua went to hades for 3 days after his holy sacrifice on the cross. In hades for 3 days he paraded lucifer up and down and all around hade's and showed to ALL who lived there just how little power lucy has. After that is when he took the keys away from the wicked one, and returned them to our Father. Blessing to you and yours.

Margaret : Jesus got the keys of hell and death from Satan Jesus went to hell for us and Satan had no other choice but to give back those keys of hell and death because He , Jesus stripped the devil of all his authority . The cross that Jesus bore was when He stripped the devil of all that Adam gave to him . Jesus went forth to conquer. I believe Colossians talks of this.

i think this is the best straight forward answer i've ever gotten. when i read how Jesus gave keys to Peter in your explaination, i then asked myself why the huge question remains how Christ has keys to hell and death... never has neone asked how he obtained keys to the kingdom of heaven, yet it is difficult to understand he has the keys to hell and death. Thank you, but my God is the Alpha and Omega and has the authority over all things, including Satan and his dwelling.. GOD Bless u all
