I have brought this verse up several times, and I always get very unusual and opposing comments. It seems to me that he preached to those who had died and gone to Hell, but Hell as a place we heard of when I was a kid in the fifties is not the same as the idea of Hell today. What does this verse say to you? What Bible Verses help you understand this verse? Let me know. Start a discussion. There is so much we all can learn by discussing God’s Word. Another verses that seems to go with this one is Ephesians 4:8-10.
