Biblical Concept of Hell: The Ultimate Destination of Human Souls
Had Jesus really “descended into hell” as the Apostles' Creed asserts? Was physical death God's only punishment for first man's and his wife's disobedience to Him? What will be the ultimate fate of those who have already died as well as that of all humans still alive? Answers to questions like these begin to take shape at the start of Genesis and fully materialize by the closing of the New Testament, all based on relevant Scriptural verses with detailed studies of the applicable original languages providentially preserved. The thread of the author's argument, rooted in Genesis 2:17 and 3:4, spans through Matthew 10:28 and 2 Thessalonians 1:9 to Revelation 21:8. The conclusion will have a definite impact on the message of comfort and hope Jesus Christ's emissaries (Matthew 16:15) seek to spread universally.
