This Place of Torment

“Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’

(Luke 16:27-30) NKJV

We’ve reached the end of our trail of deduction for today, and the only conclusion which we can reach is that the rich man is in the molten core of the Earth, the pit. Abraham and Lazarus are in the lower mantle, the midst of hell.

There are several other synonyms which refer to structures in or the location of the core of the Earth.

Hell (sheol or hades) refers broadly to the underworld realm of the dead and encompasses all of its levels. However, there are times when the context makes it clear that these words refer to a specific level.
