We’ve often heard that the dead go to a special place, but what exactly is that place? When Jesus died and went into the belly of the Earth, was that place Hell? What is the difference between Hell and this Old Testament term, Sheol? Is there even a difference? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through both Old Testament and New Testament to find the answers, in her video Sheol.

If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!

Psalms 139:8

39 But He answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.”

Matthew 12:39-41

22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s [bosom]. The rich man also died and was buried, 23 and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. 24 And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’

Luke 16:22-24

13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. 14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:13-15
