In John 11:26 the words MH APOQANH EIS TON AIWNA are translataed in most
English Bibles as "shall never die". In our version in Portuguese,
however, it is translated as "shall not die for ever". This seems to be
more in agreement with the literal translations:
"shall not die - to the age"(Young's Literal Translation)
"shall not ever die forever" (Green's Literal Translation).
Would there be another way in Greek to express the idea of "never die"?
