I am trying to find the word zoe in the scripture. It means life, but I want to read the Bible verse with the word in it. Once, long ago, I read it, but neglected to mark it.
John 10:28 is one verse that uses it. The online resource BlueLetterBible.org is very helpful for this sort of search, Pastor Mary. They have a way to view the Greek or Hebrew of the verse — click here for John 10:28 as an example. “Life” is from the Greek “zoe”. Then you can also click on the Strong’s number (G2222) on their site (or this linked text) and see ALL the verses that use this Greek word. Hope this helps!
