Ben-Hinnon is also known as Gehenna, a word Jesus used for hell. At the time of Jesus, it was a garbage dump, where a fire constantly burned, consuming the relentless supply of garbage from a large city like Jerusalem. Gehenna is a place on earth which communicates the nature of hell. For example, in Mark 9:47, Jesus says, "And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, where 'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'"
