Literal Word for Word Translation: And this is the testimony, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
Vocab: ζωὴν αἰώνιον, zōēn aiōnion, life eternal (eternal life); ζωὴ, zōē, life; ἔδωκεν, edōken, he has given; τῷ υἱῷ, tō huiō, to/for the son.
Commentary: This is the root of the gospel! We have eternal life because we have the Son in us by His Spirit. Eternal life is by faith, not by works, but produces works of righteousness as it, the life of God, is manifested in us.
