Sheol Hell?

This page contains a portion of
each "KJ Old Testament" verse
that has the only word translated
to read "hell" in the Old Testament
so you can see that it is not a hot
place where any bad person is alive
or tortured. The word in Hebrew is
"sheol", and it was often rendered
as grave or pit rather than as "hell".
Jesus, a Jew, used the Holy Word
to teach. As followers of Jesus do
we want to teach differently than did
"the Christ"? True Christianity will do
its best to speak and teach rightly.

Only Numbers 23:22 mentions a
"fire" and it is of "anger" type heat.

Isaiah 33:14 is some times used to
sell "hell", but if you read from vs 10
to 19 you will see the context that
eliminates the hot hell perception.
The word "sheol, hell" is not there.

The next page will deal with "hell"
in the "New Testament" where the
Greek "hades" equals Hebrew "sheol".

What would Jesus say about "sheol"?
