I don't think anyone knows. And if someone did know they wouldn't be some random stranger on yahoo answers.

The Bible does not specifically state what happened to Jesus immediately after He died on the cross. Because of this, there is debate surrounding the answer to this question of where He went and what He did. So, here are a few different views and you decide. Most popular is 1Peter 3:18-20. "For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, in order that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; 19 in which also He Went and Made Proclamation to the Spirits now in prison, v20: Who once were disobedient, when the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah, during the construction of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through the water." The Spirit here referring to the Holy Spirit the third Person of the Holy Trinity as the agent of Christ's resurrection.
One view where Jesus was and what He did before His resurrection is that He went to Hades (the place of the dead) and made proclamation to those who were in spiritual prison. The word "proclamation" in Greek is kerusso. It means to proclaim and is a different word than "euaggelizo" which means to preach the gospel. Therefore, it is most probable that Jesus was not preaching the gospel to those in Hades/Spirit prison so they could be saved, but was instead proclaiming the truth to them. After all, the Bible says, "And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes the judgment,"(Heb.9v27) But who were the spirits in the spiritual prison? Some believe it is the people who were alive at the time of Noah's flood and who were killed in the flood. Others believe it is all humanity who died before the time of the cross. 2Peter 2:4-5 seems more plausible. "For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; v5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the ungodly." Needless to say, this passage also raises many questions and much debate can for its correct interpretation. According to Eph:48-10 "When He ascended on high, He led captive a host of captives, and He gave gifts to men. V9 He 'ascended' what does it mean except that Jesus descended into the lower parts of the earthv10:" He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all thing... Some theologians believe that during the three days between Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, He descended into Abraham's bosom (Luke 16:19-31) proclaimed to them the mystery of the gospel, and then led them into heaven to dwell with God. The belief is that they were not permitted to enter into the presence of God in heaven, until after the Atonement. Once that had happened, Jesus who had died, descended to Abraham's bosom, proclaimed the gospel, and then let it residents into heaven. . We can say two things, In those three days Jesus presented the gospel message (not to have them get saved) to those in spirit prison and possibly also to those in Abraham's bosom. Yes there was an earthquake. There was no revolt against tyranny, Jesus did not encourage his follower to do so. They were scared and in hiding, especially Peter. Lucifer, absolutely, definitely, positively was present and waiting for the end. Pity he did not know of God's Plan of Salvation for mankind. He did not get the memo in John 3Verse 16. Good question.Source(s): The Bible: http://carm.org/christian-doctrine/where-did-jesus...

No. Nobody really knows. Barbaric, uneducated, theist morons will falsely tell you otherwise though.
Jesus most likely decayed, because when you die, the bacteria that helps you when you're living, starts eating you from the inside out. Then all that's left are bones.

It must have been the most UNEVENTFUL episode of history.
Because the people at the time did not write it down AT ALL. Not a single verse about it.
Can not have been that strange an event.
