    No, the translators put eternity there. Again, Jesus said the aion ends. How is something that ends eternal

    Bias.

    Exactly, Yet Jesus said the aion would end. That makes it finite. Also, Paul and the other apostles spoke of the end of the aion. How is something that ends eternal?

    I agree. We have the same issue with translations

    I'm not writing my own understanding. I'm using the same words that the English translator are. They are the ones who are writing their understanding. Let me ask a question. How can something that ends be eternal? But, were not talking about God and time, we're talking about time and eternity.

    And a study of the use in Scripture will show this is incorrect. Aion can't mean eternal and finite. That's a logical contradiction. D-D-W pointed out that the dictionary isn't reliable. That can go for Bible dictionaries also.

    They are worlds apart. However, we speak modern English. Our translations are in modern English. Thus, modern translators have used modern language to give us our translations. Again, how can eternity be outside of time when eternity means unending time?

    Indont believe in soul sleep either. However, it seems to me you're assuming an afterlife other than the Resurrection. But, there's nothing in Scripture that would support that. You said you believe Jesus took everyone in Abraham's bosom to Heaven. Where do you find this teaching that people...

    In that passage Jesus is alluding to Isaiah 66. If you read the passage you'll see that what's burning there are corpses, not disembodied beings. Corpses are dead people. However, we know that Gehenna doesn't burn forever because Jeremiah prophesied that one day it will, once again, be made...

    Eternity isn't a Biblical word. It's a wird we use all the time. So, it's a regular dictionary.

    In the dictionary.

    Can you explain how eternity is outside of time when eternity means unending time?

    Can you explain how it is even possible that it could be literal? As far as I've seen, dead people can't speak. Your literal interpretation presupposes a Greek philosophic belief in Dualism, a concept not supported by Scriputre. Just because someone is named doesn't necessitate that it can't...

    Blessing of Election !

    He may be busy. I was for a while Thanks! I've heard of it, but I'm not sure what it is.

    Where in Scripture do we find that? We don't, it's an inference drawn from several passages. There is no Paradise in Hades. There is no Abraham's bosom in Hades. Abraham bosom is a man's chest. Hades is the grave, and paradise means garden. There is nothing in Scripture that says there's a...
