SOZO Meaning

What Does the Word "Sozo" Mean?

SOZO is a Greek word translated "saved, healed, delivered." The word is used over 100 times in the New Testament to refer to the "complete package" of salvation, deliverance and healing. For instance, in the story of the ten lepers in Luke 17:11–19, nine got "cleansed" of their leprosy, and the one that went back to Jesus praising God for his healing was "Sozoed" (ie cleansed and made whole).

Here are some scriptures to study and meditate.
