Good points all. I looked up the name "Lazarus" and it means ......God Helps. IMO it is the real name of a man because later another Lazarus would come back from the dead. Now the Bible fact is that the later Lazarus who came back from the dead and the religious leaders of that day wanted to kill him which actually confirms what Abraham said to Lazarus in torments. Luke 16:31....... "And he said unto him, if they hear not Moses and the prophets neither will they be persuaded though one rose from the dead". In that way, since a real name was used to describe a real man, it confirms the Bible teaching that Hel is a real place just as the man is a real man.
