Sermon Questions from April 24, 2011

Q: Did Moses, David, Abraham and the other men and people of God in the Old Testament go to Hell when they died?
A: To answer your question: Before Christ, the old testament saints who died went to a place called Sheol. Sheol was a holding place for both the righteous and the wicked (Numbers 16:30,33; Psalm 16:10). By Jesus’ time the idea was described as “Abraham’s side”, apparently a place of paradise for old testament believers at the time of death (Luke 23:43; 2 Corinthians 12:4). Let us know if you need anything else.
