Jesus interceded on our behalf. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
When it says that he made a show of them - in the greek the terminology used. Now for the rest of it--the first thing we must do to understand what went on in the grave is clear up a misunderstanding that has arisen by centuries of translating two distinct ideas as one term.
The English word "hell" is used to describe both the grave and Ghenna, which are not the same thing. Ghenna is the second death, seen in Revelation--it is the lake of fire, symbolizing the doom of those who reject God, through a metaphor not unlike the Valley of Hinnon.
The burning garbage dump seen in old Jerusalem is also seen metaphorically by John, when he sees his vision of the new Earth. The grave, however, is quite different, and is the better of the two to be described as "hell," although the English term has lost its true meaning to most of us in antiquity.
The grave can be seen as a prison, for sure--but I think when we get to the Kingdom and know even as we are known, we will find that there is more and yet less to it. It can be quite confusing to distinguish the two in the gospels, frankly because most translations present them with the same word.
This is what we know for a fact: Jesus descended to the grave. The grave is the first death--this is where he preached to the Spirits 1 Peter 3: Well, we have no scriptures to say that he did. Jesus was slain before the foundation of the world, after all--arising from Ghenna would make his ressurection all the more mighty.

Jesus had prepared and God used them in a powerful way to alert the world to His good news that Jesus Christ had come into the world to save sinners.
