John 5:25

And now is (kai nun estin). See Revelation 4:23 for this phrase. Not the future resurrection in verse 5:28 , but the spiritual resurrection here and now. The dead (oi nekroi). The spiritually dead, dead in trespasses and sins ( Ephesians 2:1 Ephesians 2:5 ; Ephesians 5:14 ). Shall hear the voice of the Son of God (akousousin th pwnh tou uiou tou qeou). Note three genitives (pwnh after akousousin, uiou with pwnh, qeou with uiou). Note three articles (correlation of the article) and that Jesus here calls himself "the Son of God" as in Ephesians 10:36 ; Ephesians 11:4 . Shall live (zhsousin). Future active indicative, shall come to life spiritually.
