When King Saul Died (Due To Committing Suicide), Did He Go To Paradise With Samuel?


Samuel was called up from from Sheol/Hades, that is, the abode of the dead (1 Samuel 28:13, 19).The New Testament reveals two compartments of Hades: the rich man was in Hades (that is, the part that is described as torments, Luke 16:23) and Jesus was in Hades (that is, the part that is described as Paradise, Acts 2:27; Luke 23:43).Samuel was simply telling Saul that he and his sons would join Samuel in Sheol - without making reference to which part of Sheol each would be found (compare Job 3:17-19).
