comment If we are saved by grace, then why does Jesus say we must be baptized in both spirit and water?
Like you said though, after the resurrection and final judgement hades will be thrown into the lake of fire (Rev 20:14) and the saints will actually live on the New Earth in New Jerusalem with Jesus (Rev 21). Actually, translations that render the greek word "hades", to the english word "hell", are somewhat misleading since hades is immediate and hell, or the lake of fire is the second death after resurrection and judgement. Eschatology is fun, fun, fun, fun.

@Darye - Good answer. On the second topic, I've always taken "paradise", "the bossom of Abraham", and even "heaven" to mean the same thing. When believers die they immediately go there (Lk 16:22, Lk 23:43) and when unbelievers die they immediately go to what Jesus always referred to has "Hades", and Peter once referred to as "Tartarus" (2Ptr 2:4) A Greek world understand both places as punishment for the dead.
