The Eternal Life of God

2 Timothy 1:10—“But now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who nullified death and brought life and incorruption to light through the gospel.”

Note 3 on life says: “The eternal life of God, which is given to all believers in Christ (1 Tim. 1:16) and which is the main element of the divine grace given to us (Rom. 5:17, 21). This life has conquered death (Acts 2:24) and will swallow up death (2 Cor. 5:4). It was according to the promise of such a life that Paul was an apostle (v. 1). This life and the incorruption that is its consequence have been brought to light and made visible to men through the preaching of the gospel.”

Cross-reference “d” on life directs us to two related verses:

2 Timothy 1:1—“Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God according to the promise of life, which is in Christ Jesus.”

1 Timothy 1:16—“But because of this I was shown mercy, that in me, the foremost, Jesus Christ might display all His long-suffering for a pattern to those who are to believe on Him unto eternal life.”
