Thanks, John. I’m surprised he doesn’t take Isaiah 66:24 into account. It’s mentioned in the Beasley-Murray quote, and its relevance is obvious in Mark 9:43, but Bolen makes no reference to it. We could ask what sort of fires gave rise to Isaiah’s image, but I presume that Jesus has used it for literary rather than observational reasons.
