The term "eternity" rarely occurs in the Old Testament, and when it does occur it does not have the modern sense.

The Greek words for eternity, "aion" and "aionios", lack the full Christian meaning also.[1]

Jesus and his disciples mention "eternity" nearly 70 times in the New Testament. Was this a new concept that originated with Christianity?
