Perpetuity of existence. The doctrine of immortality is taught in the Old Testament. It is plainly implied in the writings of Moses (Genesis 5:22,24 ; 25:8 ; 37:35 ; 47:9 ; 49:29 , Compare Hebrews 11:13-16 ; Exodus 3:6 , Compare Matthew 22:23 ). It is more clearly and fully taught in the later books (Isaiah 14:9 ; Psalm 17:15 ; 49:15 ; 73:24 ). It was thus a doctrine obviously well known to the Jews.

With the full revelation of the gospel this doctrine was "brought to light" (2 Timothy 1:10 ; 1 Corinthians 15 ; 2 co 5:1-6 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 ).
