Sheol/hades was a realm with two divisions—a place of blessing (Luke 23:43) and a place of judgment (Matthew 11:23; 16:18; Luke 10:15; 16:23; Acts 2:27-31), which were separated by a great chasm (Luke 16:26). When Jesus died, He went to the blessed side of sheol and, from there, took the believers with Him to heaven (Ephesians 4:8-10). The judgment side of sheol/hades has remained unchanged. All unbelieving dead go there awaiting their final judgment in the future. Did Jesus go to sheol/hades? Yes, according to Ephesians 4:8-10 and 1 Peter 3:18-20.
