Jesus descended into hell and took the keys of death and damnation from Satan before he rose from the dead.
Hell is for the damned who are doomed because of their sin.
Jesus had no sin.
Point and cse.
Jesus answered them, “And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? For God commanded, Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘Whoever reviles father or mother must surely die. Matthew 15: 1-9edit on 14-2-2012 by anthonygillespie2012 because: (no reason given)

The word which endangers people to "hellfire" is μωρϵ, or 'more', from the root 'moros'. This is from where we get the word "moron". The root and its modern English equivalent have similar meanings.
The word Jesus uses to call people "fools" is ἄφρωνϵς, or 'aphrones', which refers to someone who is, quite simply, foolish.
The difference should be obvious.
The word translated as fool is the Greek moros, which has a similar meaning to the Aramaic reka. However moros also was used to mean godless, and thus could be much more severe a term than reka.
Jesus is described as rebuking them (in variations of the same wording in each gospel): a prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house - Matthew 13:57 This saying is also mentioned in John 4:44. Matthew states that Jesus didn't do many miracles there because of "their lack of faith". In a similar passage Mark says that Jesus was not able to do any miracles there except for healing a few sick people. Luke adds that Jesus recounted stories about how, during the time of Elijah, only a Sidonian woman was saved, and how, during the time of Elisha, though there were many lepers in Israel, only a Syrian was cleansed.
