If you look for "hell" in the Hebrew of Christian Bibles, you're in for a long, fruitless search. It isn't there. Why? Because the Hebrew prophets never mentioned a place where human beings would writhe in eternal torment, gnashing their teeth forever. The Hebrew prophets n ever mention even the slightest possibility of suffering after death. Isn't that extremely odd, if there really is a hell and God wanted us to know how to avoid it? The Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) mentions a place called Sheol, but the Hebrew word Sheol . . .
