Welcome.  Let’s begin our study of hell.  Is hell real and where is it?

Jeremiah 7:30  The people of Judah have done evil in my eyes, declares the Lord.  They have set up detestable
idols in the house that bears my name and have defied it.  They have built the high places of Topheth in the
Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire- something I (God) did not com-
mand, nor did it enter my mind.

What is the above scripture saying?  South of Jerusalem, in the Valley of Hinnom, the people built a fire
pit that was a garbage dump.  It was also where they sacrificed and burned their children to pagan
gods.

In Hebrew, “Valley of Hinnom” is translated as “Gehenna.”  In English, “Gehenna” is translated as “hell.”

The bible calls the eternal home of nonbelieving souls “hell.”  It is called “hell” because the place on earth that
most resembles the horror of this eternal dwelling was the “Valley of Hinnom” or “Gehenna” as described in
Jeremiah 7:30.

Next week we will read more scriptures that describes hell as a real place.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
