Say It Ain't Sozo!

The following verses contain derivatives of the Greek word sozo, which means being made wellmade wholesavedhealed, etc. (1). By no means is this list exhaustive (2). It's purpose is to help us understand what salvation through Jesus entails, “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. Ephesians 1:17‭-‬21 ESV
