SOZO is a word which is found over 110 times in the New Testament. It is a Greek word which means, “to save or make well or whole.” According to Strong’s Concordance, SOZO also means, “to save, deliver, heal and preserve.” The Holy Spirit brought it forth in the various contexts in order to show the multiple meanings all throughout the Gospels and Epistles in the New Testament.
Here are a few examples of these verses which will give you some understanding of the three facets of the word:
SALVATION Romans 10:9
That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you shall be saved. (SOZO)”

DELIVERANCE Luke 8:36
