1 Ahmed M = "Father here refers to God, who is all-powerful and all-mighty. He is the one who controls the universe and everything in it."
2 Sarah Mangum = "Jesus ascended from the dead."
3 Jeff Smith = "This video explains the Apostles' Creed and urges the viewer to be mindful when reciting the creed."
4 Stephanie C = "I believe and know with all my heart that the Lord God is real he is the creator.He is my Lord almighty."
5 Jesse James DeConto = "The Apostle's Creed is the second-most used doctrinal creed in the Christian church, behind the longer, more detailed Nicene Creed. The Apostle's Creed has the benefit of brevity and an almost journalistic, factual style that offer simplicity such that it's the favored creed for the catechesis of children, for example. According to church historian Justo Gonzalez, the creed developed in Rome around the year 150. It was titled "Symbol of the Faith" and intended to ward off heresy. Gonzalez says the Creed spends the most words on Jesus because the Gnostics and Marcionites denied the possibility of God's immanence in the material world and thereby rejected both Jesus' Incarnation and the divine rule over the physical. In the Creed, Jesus transcends seamlessly between God and man. Though the Apostles' Creed doesn't go as far as Nicaea in establishing the deity of the Holy Spirit, it is the Church's most ancient, widely-read and enduring formulation of the Trinity. We see the Father as Creator, Jesus as Redeemer and the Spirit through the Church as Sanctifier. "
6 Michael McKissick = "Matt Chandler delivered a sermon series that walks through each verse of the Apostles' Creed. This is the series introduction, based on the opening words of the Creed "I believe in.""
7 Michael McKissick = "Matt Chandler delivered a sermon series that walks through each verse of the Apostles' Creed. This is the second sermon in the series, based on the words of the Creed "God the Father, Almighty, Maker of Heaven and earth.""
8 James Oppenheimer = "In first-century times, the father was the head of the family, which meant practically the power of life and death. It was in this power sense that the word was understood in those times, and it was in this sense that the word was used in the creeds.  Today, we understand "father" differently, and try to put that sense into the creed, but that would be a mistake. It is all about power, not the nice-guy image we would like to place on it. However, since God is beyond gender and reproductive concerns, the patriarchal sense of the word is also not particularly helpful."
9 Michael McKissick = ""Maker of heaven and earth" comes directly from Genesis 1:1"
10 Ahmed M = "Christians believe that Jesus was the son of God; this has been challenged by Islam - which believes that Jesus was a prophet and a human being."
11 Sahil Badruddin = "Put into historical context, it is not a surprise that the Prophet Muhammad thought Jesus was regarded as only man because there were Christians in Pre-Islamic Arabia who believe Jesus was only man, such as the Copts(Arab Christians). "
12 Michael McKissick = "Matt Chandler delivered a sermon series that walks through each verse of the Apostles' Creed. This is the third sermon in the series, based on the words of the Creed "And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord.""
13 Michael McKissick = "Matt Chandler delivered a sermon series that walks through each verse of the Apostles' Creed. This is the fourth sermon in the series, based on the words of the Creed "Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary.""
14 James Oppenheimer = "When the sense of the creed is often opaque for so many to begin with, I must say that I find the use of the antiquated word for "spirit" somewhat off-putting. That the word "ghost" is today understood very differently makes it especially unhelpful. A small matter, some would say, but the word "spirit" has been in use for nearly half a century in translations used in worship."
15 Shawn Bose = "Leonardo da Vinci"
16 Shawn Bose = "Michaelangelo da Buonarotti (from La Pieta)"
17 Shawn Bose = "The trial, sentence and death of Jesus as described by the Book of John Chapter 19."
18 Stephanie C = "Pontius  Pilate being therefore the one who said it was Ok to go ahead and crucify the lord Jesus."
19 Michael McKissick = "Matt Chandler delivered a sermon series that walks through each verse of the Apostles' Creed. This is the fifth sermon in the series, based on the words of the Creed "Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried.""
20 Shawn Bose = "Pontius Pilate was the Roman Governor of Judea at the time of Jesus's trial.  Since there are few historical mentions of Jesus himself outside of the Bible still in existence (like the brief reference by Josephus as an example) it is important that the utilization of other contemporary figures who were to be found in multiple records, including coinage (Herod) were used by the authors's of the Bible to place Jesus in his proper context.Here is a page on Deily about Pontius Pilate  "
21 Michael McKissick = "Matt Chandler delivered a sermon series that walks through each verse of the Apostles' Creed. This is the sixth sermon in the series, based on the words of the Creed "He descended into hell: The third day he rose again from the dead.""
22 Greg Dill = "Jesus descends to hell where he set free those who were imprisoned. Jesus' work on the cross has saved everyone so that no one shall perish."
23 Erik R = "Hell is a later addition to the Apostles' creed. He descended to the dead is a better translation of earlier versions of the creed. "
24 Jeff Smith = "The section on the Apostles' Creed from "The Lost Books of the Bible" adds some context to speculation about authorship of the creed and the additional line about descent into hell."
25 Michael McKissick = "Matt Chandler delivered a sermon series that walks through each verse of the Apostles' Creed. This is the seventh sermon in the series, based on the words of the Creed "He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.""
26 Michael McKissick = "Matt Chandler delivered a sermon series that walks through each verse of the Apostles' Creed. This is the eighth sermon in the series, delivered by Mike Dsane, based on the words of the Creed "From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.""
27 Alan C Hall II = "Within the King James Bible (published in 1611) the word "quick" specifically means living or alive (a meaning still retained the idiom quickening as the moment in pregnancy when fetal movements are first felt and also in the "quick" of the fingernails)Its English meaning in later centuries shifted to "fast", "rapid", "moving, or able to move, with speed". The phrase (the quick and the dead) can also be found via (1 Peter 4:3–5) and (Acts 10:42) and (2 Timothy 4:1)."
28 Ahmed M = "All human beings will be brought back to life after going to the grave; this will happen when the stage will be about to be set on the day of judgement."
29 Jeff Smith = "Here is a photo of the Apostles' Creed engraved on a plaque in The Temple Church in London. (Photo is my own.)"
30 Alan C Hall II = ""
