Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
The word means to make alive, or to give life more abundant. It is so used and has this meaning in Psalm 71:20; Psalm 80:18; Psalm 119:25; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 15:36; Ephesians 2:1; Colossians 2:13; 1 Peter 3:18.
John 5:21 (a) This word describes the miracle which takes place at the resurrection when our Lord sends life back into the body again. In this passage the Father and the Son accomplish this marvelous transaction. (See Romans 4:17).
John 6:63 (a) The Spirit Himself is called the Spirit of Life, and He gives life as we read in1Co 15:45. He is called the Spirit of Life in Romans 8:2.
1 Timothy 6:13 (a) By this expression we learn that life in all of its forms and expressions, in resurrection and in reproduction, comes from the Lord JESUS CHRIST in whom is life, and from whom comes life.
