The Rich man and Lazarus


The Rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31) is one of the main texts used to teach the doctrine of eternal torment. In the parable, Jesus speaks of a rich man who dies and goes to hades (“hell”). This rich man is contrasted with a poor man named Lazarus, who dies and goes to Abraham’s bosom, commonly interpreted as “heaven.”
