Sozo: Part 2

My guitar-playing friend Bill Long sent me an e-mail re. the biblical Greek word sozo. Bill wrote: A while back I was thinking about the Jimmy Page "Zoso" emblem, and I thought it would be neat to spell "Sozo" in the same kind of font. While I was surfing the internet, I found this web site - I think they make replacement capacitors for vintage tube amps..."

I went to the website and then read this - very cool!

"What is SoZo?

Sozo is the Greek word for Salvation. It was used in the new testament to describe the salvation of God. It is the salvation that only comes through the name and person of Jesus. It means complete deliverance from your current disposition, psychologically, physically, and eternally. Body, mind and spirit. It means deliverance from bad health, poverty, broken emotions. He offers his hand, please take it.
