    The Gospel according to Luke

    Luke 10:25-28 ESV
    25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" 26 He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How do you read it?" 27 And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself." 28 And he said to him, "You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live."

    By the words of Jesus, Love God and love your neighbor and thru these acts you can inherit eternal life.

    For the Christian, "eternal life" means life with God after we die. We understand we are saved through God's redeeming grace in order to live forever.

    However, for the Jew in Jesus' time the phrase "eternal life" was understood as a fulfilling, complete life; a life worth living here on earth. This is the way the rabbis of the time used the term.

    Jesus was not saying a man can live forever with God as a reward for doing good works. He was saying a man can have a good life here on earth by living to please God and by loving his fellow man. When it came to payment for our sins, Jesus himself said his sacrifice would save man.

    Thanks, that is clarifying.

    So nobody before Jesus' death had a life with God after they died?

    The only people who go to heaven are Christians?

    Old Testament saints were saved because of their faith. The mechanism of their salvation was the work of Christ even though it had not been accomplished yet.

    In ot times everybody went to Sheol when died. Jesus went there when He died and preached the messiah to them. If they believed they went to heaven. But yes believers in Jesus from every religion and walk of life will get to go to heaven. If you only had a bible believing church you could trust and studied you would see the truth unfold.

    No one can obey that scripture in Luke 10 without the Holy Spirit whom you get from believing in Jesus and asking.

    A man must first be born of the Spirit of God before he can see his need to come to Christ and be healed of his sin and rebellion before His Creator. Jn 3v3
    There are only two kinds of men:

    1. Those who know Jesus Christ is both Creator and Sovereign Lord.

    2. Those about to learn that Jesus Christ is both Creator and Sovereign Lord.

    God stands outside of time - in fact He invented time. We are limited by linear time and don't understand those things that are not so limited. This - the salvation of OT saints, is a classic example of that. That of which we cannot conceive is simple for God.

    I have heard this proposed before, but I am not sure of it. If you do one thing before another isn't that time? I would think that would apply to God as well.

    Of course I don't understand how eternity past exists and I suppose the idea that God stands outside of time is an explanation.

    It would take too long to explain what I meant and would not be well received by those for whom it was intended.
