What did Jesus say about Hell

What did Jesus say about Hell

Here’s what Jesus said about hell, along with relevant Bible verses and three main takeaways with their titles bolded:

Jesus spoke about hell as a place of eternal punishment and separation from God. Here are some relevant verses:

“If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.” (Mark 9:43)

“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.'” (Matthew 25:41)

“And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell.” (Mark 9:47)

Three Main Takeaways:

  1. Reality of Hell: Jesus spoke about hell as a real place of eternal punishment, confirming its existence and warning about its severity.
  2. Eternal Separation: Hell is described as a state of eternal separation from God, where those condemned will be cast away from His presence.
  3. Serious Consequences: Jesus used vivid and intense language to emphasize the seriousness of hell and the need to avoid it at all costs, even if it requires radical self-denial.

In Jesus’ teachings, hell is portrayed as a place of everlasting torment, fire, and darkness, reserved for those who reject God and His offer of salvation. His words underscore the grave consequences of unbelief and the importance of heeding His message.
