Zane Clark Hodges was born June 15, 1932 in Washington, DC to Zebulon C. and Virginia Hodges. Zebulon worked for the Defense Department. Zane's parents were Baptists when Zane was young, then they became Plymouth Brethren. Zane grew up in Chambersburg, PA, and came to trust Christ for his eternal salvation around the age of ten. Zane had an older brother, David, a statistician, who died in 1981.

Zane received his B.A. at Wheaton College in 1954, majoring in Greek. His Th.M. came in 1958 from Dallas Theological Seminary. His thesis dealt with the Greek text of the Book of Revelation.

Zane led a youth club for Hispanic children while in seminary, and taught and served the Lord at Victor Street Bible Chapel, a Plymouth Brethren assembly in Dallas, for 45 years. He was also the president of Kerugma, Inc. in Mesquite, TX. He collected original comics and was an avid science fiction reader, but his field of study was New Testament Textual Criticism.
