"He Descended Into Hell"

Lee Irons has done a miniseries explaining and defending this article of the Apostles’ Creed:

  1. In part 3 I posted the following:

    I've read other theologians say that after the crucifixion, the righteous dead no longer go to the righteous compartment in hades/sheol, but now go directly to heaven because they waited for Christ to release them from hades/sheol when he descended there.

    The wicked dead continue to go to that compartment of hades/sheol that's reserved for the wicked where they wait till the final judgement when they will be sentenced to gehenna.

    Your second option seems similar to the one I presented. Is it similar or even the same thing? You don't quite say that Christ released them from sheol or that from then on, they skip entering sheol and go directly to heaven (where Christ's glorified body resides).
