A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
I’ve received several questions lately asking for clarification of the term “Outer Darkness” so here’s an updated and expanded version of a study I did on the subject several years ago. The outer darkness is mentioned a total of 4 times in the New Testament, three by name and one by implication, and always by Jesus. The term is not used any where else, Old Testament or New, by anyone else. Those who ask about the outer darkness want to know if it’s another name for the place of eternal punishment, or if it’s some place different. And they want to know who’s going there.
