Dear Liz,

HH: Thinking of history in terms of ages, and in 
terms of an age coming to an end, was common in 
first century Israel, evidently:

Matt. 12:32 Anyone who speaks a word against the 
Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who 
speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be 
forgiven, either in this age or in the age to 
Matt. 13:39 and the enemy who sows them is the 
devil. The harvest is the *end of the age,* and 
the harvesters are angels.
Matt. 13:40 ¶  "As the weeds are pulled up and 
burned in the fire, so it will be at the *end of 
the age.*
Matt. 13:49 This is how it will be at the *end of 
the age.* The angels will come and separate the 
wicked from the righteous
Matt. 24:3 ¶ As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of 
Olives, the disciples came to him privately. 
"Tell us," they said,  "when will this happen, 
and what will be the sign of your coming and of 
the *end of the age?"*
Matt. 28:20 and teaching them to obey everything 
I have commanded you. And surely I am with you 
always, to the very *end of the age."*
Mark 10:30 will fail to receive a hundred times 
as much in this present age (homes, brothers, 
sisters, mothers, children and fields - and with 
them, persecutions) and in the age to come, 
eternal life.
Luke 20:34 ¶ Jesus replied,  "The people of this 
age marry and are given in marriage.
Luke 20:35 But those who are considered worthy of 
taking part in that age and in the resurrection 
from the dead will neither marry nor be given in 
1Cor. 1:20 ¶ Where is the wise man? Where is the 
scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? 
Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
1Cor. 2:6 ¶ We do, however, speak a message of 
wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of 
this age or of the rulers of this age, who are 
coming to nothing.
1Cor. 2:8 None of the rulers of this age 
understood it, for if they had, they would not 
have crucified the Lord of glory.
1Cor. 3:18 ¶ Do not deceive yourselves. If any 
one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of 
this age, he should become a "fool" so that he 
may become wise.
2Cor. 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the 
minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the 
light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who 
is the image of God.
Gal. 1:4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue 
us from the present evil age, according to the 
will of our God and Father,
Eph. 1:21 far above all rule and authority, power 
and dominion, and every title that can be given, 
not only in the present age but also in the one 
to come.
1Tim. 6:19 In this way they will lay up treasure 
for themselves as a firm foundation for the 
coming age, so that they may take hold of the 
life that is truly life.
Titus 2:12 It teaches us to say "No" to 
ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live 
self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this 
present age,
Heb. 6:5 who have tasted the goodness of the word 
of God and the powers of the coming age,
