<DIV><FONT size=2>Dear Biblical Greek:</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>Can anyone help me determine if there is a single Greek word
that means "future"?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>I am aware of Louw &amp; Nida's presentation of the
expressions&nbsp;TO MELLONTA and EIS TOUS AIWNAS.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>I'm working on a&nbsp;hypothesis that there is no single word
covering the sense of "future"/"Zukunft" because the New Testament/ancient
Greek&nbsp;notion of time is not comparable to ours.&nbsp; Any insights you can
provide would be helpful.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>Thanks for your input!</FONT></DIV>
