Question: Did Jesus suffer when he went to hell?

Answer: Jesus experienced all the things that an unsaved person will experience; Heb. 4:15, “…we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are…” Jesus was made sin for us, 2 Cor.5:21, “…he hath made him to be sin for us…” Jesus gave himself as a sin offering; Heb. 7:27, “…this he did once, when he offered up himself.” When He entered into hell, he was offering himself as a sacrifice and offering to suffer the consequences of having been made sin. Although he was made sin, he did not commit any sin; 2 Cor. 5:21, “…who knew no sin…”

The word hell is one of the most misunderstood Biblical words. Most people think that hell is limited to pain and suffering. That thought process isn’t wrong, but it isn’t exactly correct either. The word hell in the Greek has several meanings. One meaning of hell is hades, which means a place for departed souls; in other words, it means the grave or death. Another meaning for hell is gehenna, which means a place of everlasting punishment. Jesus experienced hell (hades), simply because he physically died, but He did not experience any pain & suffering in hell (gehenna). The reason being, Jesus never committed any sins; therefore he could not experience any pain & suffering in hell (gehenna), after he died. No, Jesus did not suffer when He went to hell (hades) and he never went to hell (gehenna). The only pain and suffering that Jesus experienced was the brutal beating and torture he received just prior to his death on the cross.
