Eternal is descriptive of whatever is infinite and unbounded by time or is outside of time and space, of the state of true existence before time began and continuing after time comes to an end, without beginning, without end, a concept introduced by Jesus. God is usually considered eternal in that He has no beginning and no end. Human souls have a starting point but no end, and they are considered to be eternal as well in Christianity.

There are nearly 70 references to "eternal" in the New Testament, but almost no references in the same sense of the word in the Old Testament.

Georg Cantor revolutionized mathematics by inventing Set Theory in order to understand eternity.
