No, before Jesus they went to a place the Jews called Abrahams bosom or Paradise. It was a place of comfort.<quoted text>
So everyone before Jesus went to hell. People living in parts of the world that never even heard of Jesus all going to hell. Very fair God u believe in!
Unbelievers went to a place of torment like the rich man. Both were in the abode of the dead called Sheol in Hebrew and Hades in the Greek.
When Jesus died He went to Paradise and when He rose He brought the faithful to Heaven with Him.
As for those who die having never heard of Jesus tells us that the minimum requirement of every man is that having looked upon the Creation, he realize there is a God Who created it and therefore Him.
This is evident in Romans 1:20; For since the creation of the world Gods invisible qualitieshis eternal power and divine naturehave been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
