"I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
John 10:10b (KJV)
"That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)"
When the Bible talks about eternal life, it's talking about a quality of life, in addition to
length of life.
