The partial life eternal is in the interval between death and Christ's second advent; the perfectional, at that advent [Bishop Pearson].
Eternal life here is: (1) initial, and is an earnest of that which is to follow; in the intermediate state (2) partial, belonging but to a part of a man, though that is his nobler part, the soul separated from the body; at and after the resurrection (3) perfectional.
