Heaven and hell before jesus


#1

hello, hope you can help me.
Before Jesus’ resurrection did all those who died just go to some sort of limbo, or was there a heaven and hell from the start ?


#2

Scripture says in Matthew 25 that hell was created for the devil and his angels so my guess is that it predates the resurrection.


#3

The just who died before Jesus are said to have been in a place like the limbo postulated for infants. It was also known as “The Bosum of Abraham.”
