The Prophets spoke of a “new heavens and new earth.” When this Age would come, people would still die , but not until after they had lived full, abundant lives. The Apostles believed that the inauguration of the New Age and fulfillment of “these promises” was imminent. Christ ascended to the Right Hand of God to make all things new.
