Description: Due to a puzzling translation of the Greek term aionios zoa during the development of the Christian church and the New Testament, an important theme may have been altered. Were the apostles trying to teach future generations how to inherit Paradise after death or where they, in fact, trying to communicate what Jesus declared would bring life in its abundance today? In this provocative book, you’ll see that applying aionios zoa according to its first century meaning, the New Testament comes to life in surprising ways. If the church adopted the ancient understanding of what was translated as “eternal life,” a fading Christianity might be able to regain its relevance for life in this world.

Jesus spoke of a paradise to come when he was on the cross. Yet he never referred to “heaven” or “the kingdom of heaven” as an afterlife destination. The kingdom he described was the development of unity on earth, a place where all things are working together in oneness and harmony.
Many parables told by Jesus that have been hard to understand will become clear when defined in present day terms. God’s will, design, and plan from the beginning of time has been perfect peace and harmony among all creation. The kingdom of heaven is at hand. It’s real and open to everyone who works toward harmony and peace. This book sets the stage for improving life in the world today rather than promoting what is needed to go to heaven after you die.
