HELPS Lexicon excerpt

165 aiōn (see also the cognate adjective, 166/aiōnios, "age-long") – properly, an age (era, "time-span") characterized by a specific quality (type of existence).  Christians today live in the newer age (165/aiōn) of the covenant – the time-period called "the NT" which is characterized by Christ baptizing all believers in the Holy Spirit.  That is, engrafting all believers (OT, NT) into His mystical body (1 Cor 12:13) with all the marvelous privileges that go with that (Gal 3:23-25; 1 Pet 2:5,9).
