In the Greek New Testament, Zoe has a special meaning. It speaks of the life that is given by God through Christ Jesus to those who believe the gospel. Scripture reveals that the source of this Zoe life is God the Father. Indeed, Jesus call Him "the living (Zoe) Father" John 6:57, indicating the Zoe life is the very life that God has in himself. Having life in himself, the Father imparted this life to the son:" For just as the father has life in himself, even so He gave to the son also to have life in himself (John 5:26). In turn, the son manifested this life to the world. Consider John's words "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men, and the light shines in the darkness...John 1:4-5. Again, John says: "And the life was manifested and we have seen and bear witness and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us". (1 John 1:2) Paul confirms John's testimony when he says that God's purpose "now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel (2 Timothy 1:9-10).
