Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews the results of the research into the place of παρρσία in Stoic-Cynic thought. It discusses the results of the research into the meanings of the term in Hellenistic Judaism, especially in the LXX and the Pseudepigrapha. The verb and noun are used about twenty-one times in the LXX. The only occurrence in the Pentateuch describes the way in which the people have become confident because of their deliverance from Egypt. The noun παρρσία appears in the New Testament (NT) a total of 31 times, the verb, παρρσία, an additional nine times. Accordingly, of the forty appearances of the word, about a third occurs in the Johannine corpus. To use παρρσία as synonymous with public (vs. private) is practically unknown in Hellenistic Greek, although it approaches the way in which Philo uses it once.

Keywords: παρρσία; Hellenistic Judaism; Johannine corpus; New Testament (NT); Philo
