The doctrine of hell is one of the most mysterious and controversial of all Christian doctrines. The exact nature of the punishment for those who do not profess faith in Jesus Christ is debated. In this course, four leading scholars present the distinct features and biblical basis of their particular view:

  • R. Albert Mohler Jr.—An Eternal Conscious Torment Perspective
  • Joel Willitts—An Annihilationist or Conditional Immortality Perspective
  • Ralph Martin—A Roman Catholic Perspective
  • Robin A. Parry—A Universalist Perspective

Each speaker explores the nature of divine punishment of sin and examines how hell is described throughout Scripture. They answer questions about God’s presence in hell, Jesus’s descension to hell after his crucifixion, and the idea of purgatory. In addition to the four positions listed above, Gerald L. Bray begins the course with a summary of how the early church wrestled with the idea of hell. This course will provide you with a better understanding of the different positions Christians hold regarding hell and eternal punishment as well as a renewed appreciation for the saving work of Jesus Christ.

Upon successful completion you should be able to:
  • Summarize each of the four perspectives
  • Define the different words used to describe hell in the Bible
  • Explain the imagery used for hell in scripture
  • Describe possible interpretations of Jesus’s descension to hell
  • Articulate an understanding of the concept of purgatory
  • Discuss the implications of each different perspective on hell
