Matthew 19:16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

16 Now someone approached him and said, “Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?”[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 19:16 Gain eternal life: this is equivalent to “entering into life” (Mt 19:17) and “being saved” (Mt 19:25); the life is that of the new age after the final judgment (see Mt 25:46). It probably is also equivalent here to “entering the kingdom of heaven” (Mt 19:23) or “the kingdom of God” (Mt 19:24), but see notes on Mt 3:2; 4:17; 18:1 for the wider reference of the kingdom in Matthew.
