opening of the prison

Isaiah 61:1

61:1 opening of the prison. The phrase “opening of the prison” in this verse is one word in the Hebrew, used only this one time in the Old Testament. It had two fulfillments, one physical and one spiritual. He came to set free those under bondage to sin spiritually, but He also descended in the Spirit to Hades, from which prison, when “He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive.” See notes on Ephesians 4:8 and 4:9.
