Stuart Briscoe

Man has had problems with his body from time immemorial. Not least the Early Christians because of the Gnostic influence. Their statement "I believe…in the resurrection of the body" was intended to combat the Gnostic heresy. The Scriptures give a balanced view.

Part 18: The Life Everlasting
Series: Knowing What To Believe
Stuart Briscoe

Eternity is to time what space is to an inch or infinity is to a unit. God "inhabits eternity" (Isaiah 57:15); He is the "King Eternal" (1 Timothy 1:17). Any relationship with Him therefore involves life that is eternal. Note: eternal and everlasting in the New Testament both translate the Greek "aionios."

1. The life of God Himself. John 5:26

2. The life of Adam received and lost. Genesis 2:7, 17

B. A quantitative definition.
