We shall give the key events for each Age as revealed in the Bible. These are the key historical events that have already occurred, and the prophesied key events yet to be fulfilled in this present Age and in the Ages to come.
Before we do this, we need to highlight the errors, which have arisen due to the mistranslation of four important age-related words in the Bible. These are two Greek words aion and aionios, and two Hebrew words owlam and ad. The mistranslation of these four age-related words is an important reason why traditional Christianity has not understood God's Plan of the Ages and why it has ended up with the unbiblical doctrine of eternal torture in hell.
We shall provide examples of relevant biblical verses where these four age-related words have been mistranslated to mean forever, everlasting or eternal. We do not claim to be Hebrew and Greek scholars, but one does not have to be an expert in Hebrew and Greek to understand that a word cannot have opposite and contradictory meanings. The Holy Spirit, who is the real Author of the Bible, is absolutely logical and He cannot have inspired statements using the same words with opposite and contradictory meanings. Therefore, we maintain that all contradictions found in any version of the Bible are due to human error in mistranslation and/or misinterpretation.
The following study of the mistranslation and/or misinterpretation of the four age-related Greek and Hebrew words, requires some determination and patience on the part of our readers. We encourage you to persist with this important concise study as we are sure that your efforts will be greatly rewarded in understanding why and how traditional Christianity has erroneously believed the doctrine of hell for many centuries.
