Eternal life
Eternal Life: This expression occurs in the Old Testament only in (Daniel 12:2) (R.V., "everlasting life"). It occurs frequently in the New Testament (Matthew 7:14; 18:8,9; Luke 10:28) comp. (Luke 18:18) It comprises the whole future of the redeemed (Luke 16:9) and is opposed to "eternal punishment" (Matthew 19:29; 25:46) It is the final reward and glory into which the children of God enter (1 Timothy 6:12,19; Romans 6:22; Galatians 6:8; 1 Timothy 1:16) (Romans 5:21) their Sabbath of rest (Hebrews 4:9) comp. (Hebrews 12:22) The newness of life which the believer derives from Christ (Romans 6:4) is the very essence of salvation, and hence the life of glory or the eternal life must also be theirs (Romans 6:8; 2 Timothy 2:11,12; Romans 5:17,21; 8:30) (Ephesians 2:5,6) It is the "gift of God in Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23) The life the faithful have here on earth (John 3:36; 5:24; 6:47,53-58) is inseparably connected with the eternal life beyond, the endless life of the future, the happy future of the saints in heaven (Matthew 19:16,29; 25:46)
