MichaelGodspeaks, i think Sherman is saying that the concept of Hell was a fictitious doctrine based on a number of Pagan myths made up by Dante and pasted onto the KJV version of the scriptures but is not representative of any of the three words used for Hell . so i think it's just a matter of lense .
You may find all of this interesting but actually its very dangerous to think hell is not real. Don't ever let anyone persuade you to think hell is fictional. Its a real literal place for those who do not know God who will suffer there forever.
