A Word for the Day
Learn a Biblical Greek word every day!
Because words do matter, the words of the New Testament matter most. And in a day when words don't seem to mean much, the need for precision in Christian doctrine and practice has never been more critical.
Each day of the year, Watson takes one Greek word, and through brief study, applications for daily living, related verses for additional study and suggested prayer topics, brings that word to life for practical living in the reader's Christian walk.
In keeping with the start of a new year, nothing could be more appropriate than to consider what the apostle Paul calls the new man (Ephesians 2:15; 4:24). The two Greek words are kainos anthropos, and they are truly significant.
One word translated new is neos (2537), which "refers to something new in time, something that recently has come into existence." The one here, however, is kainos (2537), which "refers to something new in quality," as it would be distinguished from something that is old and worn out.* This word is used, for example, to refer to the "new tomb" in which Joseph of Arimathea laid the body of Jesus (Matthew 27:60). It was not a new tomb that had recently been hewn from the rock (neos), rather one that had never been used and was therefore new in the sense of quality.
Man is not the Greek (435, "a male person"), but rather anthropos (444), the word that speaks of man as a "species,"* man as a race. It also refers not to a mere "part" of a man, but the whole man, every aspect of him.
Putting it all together, the picture is graphic. The new man is something that has not existed before. He has been inwardly transformed, which produces new character and new habits.
Another key verse is 2 Corinthians 5:17: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new [kainos] creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new [kainos]." The Christian is, therefore, a "new creature," not new in the sense of time—as in the date he received Christ as Savior—rather new in quality, a creature that has never existed before, a creature with a new character.
As you start this new year, fully realize that you are a new man (or "woman"), a new creature in Christ with a new character and a new way of life.
Scriptures for Study: Keeping in mind the difference between kainos and neos, consider what is new in the following verses: Matthew 26:28; John 13:34; 1 Corinthians 11:25; Hebrews 8:8,13,15; 2 Peter 3:3.
