  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Immortality 
  perpetuity  of  existence.  The  doctrine  of  immortality  is  taught 
  in  the  Old  Testament.  It  is  plainly  implied  in  the  writings  of 
  Moses  (Gen.  5:22,  24;  25:8;  37:35;  47:9;  49:29,  comp.  Heb. 
  11:13-16;  Ex  3:6,  comp.  Matt.  22:23).  It  is  more  clearly  and 
  fully  taught  in  the  later  books  (Isa.  14:9;  Ps  17:15;  49:15; 
  73:24).  It  was  thus  a  doctrine  obviously  well  known  to  the  Jews. 
 
  With  the  full  revelation  of  the  gospel  this  doctrine  was 
  "brought  to  light"  (2  Tim.  1:10;  1  Cor.  15;  2  Cor.  5:1-6;  1 
  Thess.  4:13-18). 
 
 
  From  THE  DEVIL'S  DICTIONARY  ((C)1911  Released  April  15  1993)  [devils]: 
 
  IMMORTALITY,  n. 
 
  A  toy  which  people  cry  for 
  And  on  their  knees  apply  for 
  Dispute,  contend  and  lie  for 
  And  if  allowed 
  Would  be  right  proud 
  Eternally  to  die  for 
  G.J.
