THE TRADITIONAL VIEW OF HELL ADVANCES THE FOLLOWING:
PREMISE 1. DURING THE INTERMEDIATE STATE the souls of the
unrighteous deceased exist in a condition of unbearable torment
in hell (Sheol/Hades).
PREMISE 2. AFTER THE FINAL JUDGEMENT the souls of unregenerate
human beings will be sustained in a condition of unbearable torment
in hell (Gehenna/lake of fire) for all eternity.
I'D LIKE TO CHALLENGE THOSE WHO BELIEVE SUCH TO OFFER SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT FOR THE TRADITIONAL VIEW OF HELL BY ANSWERING THE FOLLOWING QUESTION:
What OT evidence might have convinced Christ's contemporaries
(i.e. the Pharisees) of the Traditional view of hell? (From Gen. - Mal.)
OT evidence that supports Premise 1.
OT evidence that supports Premise 2.
We can get to the New Testament , once we exhaust the Old Testament (scriptural evidence only please) that would have convinced the Pharisees of Jesus day who supported both premises.
