The the Difference between Sheol, Hades, and Gehennah...Prior to Christ, everyone went to SHEOL
This month I would like to explain the difference between the immediate state of the dead (what happens after death) and the ultimate destiny of the human race (Lake or Fire or New Jerusalem).

In the Bible, various words are used to describe the state of the dead.

The terms Sheol, in the Hebrew Bible, and Hades, in the Green New Testament, are EQUIVALENT. This is very important to understand. They mean the same thing-the place of Departed Spirits! In Psalm 16:10, we read these words of David:


“For thou (YHVH) will not leave me soul in Hell (Sheol)

neither wilt thou suffer thine holy one (Jesus) to see

corruption.” Psalm 16:10


David says that GOD will not leave his soul in SHEOL. Sheol is the PLACE OF DEPARTED SPIRITS. Prior to the resurrection of Christ, Sheol was under the earth and had TWO COMPARTMENTS (Luke 16:22-24).

The verse that we quoted in Psalm 16 is REPEATED in the New Testament. In Acts 2:27, Peter quoted from Psalm 16. When we read the word “hell” it is really HADES (in Greek). Thus HADES and SHEOL are EQUIVALENT.

Prior to Christ, everyone went to SHEOL.

No one went directly to heaven except Elijah and Enoch. Even Christ went to SHEOL, for the Scripture says, “…He (Christ) also DESCENDED first into the lower parts of the earth” (Ephesians 4:9).

We must understand that Christ and the righteous dead of the Old Testament went to the UPPER COMPARTMENT of Sheol, which is called PARADISE, or “Abraham’s bosom.” The unrighteous dead (i.e. the rich man in Luke 16, etc.) went to the LOWER COMPARTMENT of Sheol.

When Christ died on the cross, he told the thief, “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43). He took this man to paradise, or Upper Sheol.


Some churches have creeds that state that Christ “DESCENDED INTO HELL.” This is actually HADES (SHEOL). After His resurrection, He emptied Upper Sheol (Paradise) and took the righteous dead to heaven (Ephesians 4:8). Only LOWER SHEOL remains in the earth and is the destination for the lost. LOWER SHEOL will be emptied into the LAKE OF FIRE (GEHENNAH) at the final judgment (Revelation 21:14).


“And death and HADES were cast into the LAKE OF

FIRE…” (Revelation 21:14).


The term GEHENNAH is different from SHEOL (Hades), for it refers to the FINAL ABODE of the unrighteous dead. One place where it is used is Matthew 5:22: “…Thou fool, shall be in danger of GEHENNA fire.” The confusion comes because GEHENNA is also translated “hell” in the King James Bible. GEHENNA IS NOT SHEOL but the FINAL JUDGMENT, which is often called the Second Death! (Revelation 21:14-15).

Between UPPER and LOWER Sheol, there was a “great gulf” or some kind of division (Luke 16). The righteous dead went to the upper compartment. Please see this illustration that I created to help further explain this:

We all are going somewhere upon our Physical Death and GOD gives us Free Will while were here on earth that will determine where we end up....

I would think most want to know that there name in the

*Lamb's Book of Life* when you make Jesus Christ the LORD of your life with a honest sincere heart....

TWO COMPARTMENTS (Luke 16:22-24).
 Quoting: Susie 973323


This story in Luke is a parable. Both Matthew 13 and Mark 4 tell us He didn't teach without them.
If it were a real account, what kind of explanation do we have for a man on fire holding a conversation - one in which he requests a mere finger-tip worth of water?!

The Rich Man is Judah, and the "Lazarus" is Abraham's steward Eleazar. It's a story further illustrating the chapter's theme of stewardship.
