New Besides the word , for the newly-made and Living
way in Heb 10: 20; and the word for the new (unfulled, unfinished) cloth in Matt. 9: 16; Mark 2: 21; there are two words translated 'new,' the difference between which is important. One is , 'new' in the sense of never having existed or been used before, that is, new in the sense of 'different'; and 'new' in the sense of 'fresh, youthful.' The new ( ) wine must be put into new ( ) bottles. Matt. 9: 17. Except in the Gospels
, in reference to the wine as above, the word is used only in 1 Cor. 5: 7, 'a new lump;' Col. 3: 10, 'the new [man];' Heb. 12: 24, 'the new Covenant
;' and Titus 2: 4, 'young woman.' In all other places the word employed is , and this is important, as indicating the entirely different character of the new Covenant
, the new Creation
, the new man, the new heavens and the new earth, etc. from all that had been. "He that sat upon the Throne
said, Behold I make all things new." Rev. 21: 5.
