The Old and the New Covenant

Psalm 133:3
It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.

Jude 1:25
to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

Some people have told me that the concept of eternal life is not Jewish. Its an Christian invention.  But in the Psalm the word «forevermore» is used several times, and most prominent in Psalm 133, promising a life without end. King David was preaching of something that is going to last longer than mortal men. The book of Daniel speaks about an eternal kingdom. My reply was simply: Why do you want to be blotted out of this eternal Kingdom?
