    I was in Bible Study and we were talkng about Hell. The leader mentioned this but did not go in depth. They said this is not taught much because it can confuse people. If it's part of the Bible, Why don't most churches teach about this?

    This is dantes inferno.. a book, it is not bible.
    If there were to be a doctrine about levels in hell it would have been taught openly.
    No levels in hell in OT
    none in the NT
    Hell is synonymous with the garbage dump of gehenna, a place where garbage is utterly consumed. One level.. consummation.

    I also believe that this belief is flesh oriented. Flesh would like to see all wicked people get "their just deserts" its kinda like vengeance.

      That's it, Dante's Inferno. It's very interesting, but not Biblical. He has a very specific outline of the different rings, and if you buy the book there will be a diagram. It's divided up into different levels for different types of people and according to their offenses on earth.

          It's part of the 3 part "trilogy" called The Divine Comedy (Paradise, Purgatory and Inferno) by Dante Aligheri written in 1308.
