Life-Giver: PART 1

A New Way To “Speak Life”

“Life” in the Abrahamic Holy Books:

  1. Old Testament: The Hebrew root word – chay – used for “save” also means “life” – Reference Semitic root word chay: Strong’s H2416 and H2421 – chayah.
  2. The Qur’an: The Arabic root word – chay – used for “save” also means “life” – For simplicity and unification, this is a transliterated form of Hayya (حَىَّ)
  3. New Testament: The Aramaic root word – chay – used for “save” also means “life” – For simplicity and unification, this is a transliterated form of Khayea
  4. Jews also use a form of this word – L’Chaim – in Hebrew it is a toast meaning “to life”


  1. Old Testament (Tawrat): But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save (chay) many people alive. Genesis 50:20
  2. The Qur’an: And, if anyone saves a life (chay), it will be as though he had saved (chay) the lives of all human beings. 5:32
  3. New Testament (Injil) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I (Jesus) came that they may have life (chay) and have it abundantly. John 10:10
