Hebrew and Greek Words for Hell
Oct 01, 2012
Does an eternal tormenting "Hell" actually exist? The original translations from old Latin and also the Greek Septuagint do NOT contain the word hell in them. When St.Jerome translated the Bible in 382 A.D. to 405 A.D. into the LATIN VULGATE, he had a Plato and Greek Mythology bias and translated the Hebrew and Greek words, 'Sheol, Shaul, Hades, Gehenna, and Tartaroo' as "hell". Those words simply mean the grave, the unknown , the grave, the fire garbage pit, and place of restraint. Since the King James translation of the Bible was translated mostly from the LATIN VULGATE, it contained the same words translated as hell in its version. The same is true with the NIV and most other translations.
In 1302 Dante immortalized the concept of a hell fire in his poem, the Divine Comedy, with Dante's Inferno which he greatly plagiarised from Plato who had lived 1700 years earlier. It was actually Plato who gave the name "hell" to the Greek underworld naming Hades as the god of hell.
For almost 500 years, the NT Church did not teach any concept of any after life of eternal torment, or hell. That concept came into the church thru St. Augustine and St. Jerome in the late 4th and early 5th century. It has stayed until today in most denominations.
Please email me and request a copy of all of the Hebrew words and Greek words translated in scripture as hell and what the original meaning of those words was. I will also send you a list of scriptures which show that ALL are saved in Jesus Christ. Don't just believe me, check it our for yourself. Let's get on with the TRUTH and stop believing in fables from paganism. Let's stop living in the 'fear of death' as Hebrews 2:15 says and freely live in the Salvation Jesus has already freely given to us all. Rejoice!!!
Knowing that 'Hell' does not actually exist is truely freeing and gives all of great hope in the Universal Salvation of everyone. I Corinthians 15:22 and Hebrews 10:10.
