What did Jesus teach about Hell?
Jesus taught much about Hell. He did so out of love--to warn us not to reject Him which would result in us going to Hell for eternity.

Jesus told the story of a rich man and a poor man, and the rich man ended up in Hell, describing it as a place of torment (Luke 16:22-28). The rich man actually cried out in Hell: ". . .I am tormented in this  flame" (Luke 16:24).

Read the story of the rich man here.

Below are more Scriptures taken from the New Testament (and mostly from the Gospels) on what Jesus said about Hell.

"The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and they will throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father" (Matthew 13:41-43).

"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats . . . And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life" (Matthew 25:31-46)?

Read the above Scripture in its context here.

Jesus taught that Hell is a place of torment and fire as these Scriptures reveal:

The man in Luke 16:24 cries: ". . .I am tormented in this  flame."

In Matthew 13:42, Jesus says: "And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."

In Matthew 25:41, Jesus says: "Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire . . ."

In Mark 9:46, Jesus speaks about Hell: "Where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched."

Revelation 20:15 says, "And whoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

It is very important that we take Hell seriously. More important still is that we choose to go to Heaven (and not Hell) by receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior. There is no other way. He is the way to Heaven - and He died on the cross so that we wouldn`t have to go to Hell.

What did Jesus teach about Hell?
In my opinion Jesus talked as much about heaven, as about hell in Mark 9:46. The termodynamic state he relates to hell, eternal energy, is the opposite to the direction our universe constantly seeks. The universe constantly seeks its lowest energy states, which ultimately means Eu -> 0. The creator of this universe is very determined to go the other direction, away from a termodynamic state in which the flames never dies. I belive Jesus was ahead of his time which I have described on youtube (see link) and here: http://headbiotech.wordpress.com/.
