"Future"

Dear Biblical Greek:

Can anyone help me determine if there is a single Greek word that means "future"?

I am aware of Louw & Nida's presentation of the expressions TO MELLONTA and EIS TOUS AIWNAS.

I'm working on a hypothesis that there is no single word covering the sense of "future"/"Zukunft" because the New Testament/ancient Greek notion of time is not comparable to ours.  Any insights you can provide would be helpful.

Thanks for your input!
