KNOW, KNOWN, KNOWLEDGE

Gnosis (1108), primarily "a seeking to know, an enquiry, investigation" (akin to A, No. 1), denotes, in the NT, "knowledge," especially of spiritual truth; it is used (a) absolutely, in <Luke 11:52; Rom. 2:20; 15:14; 1 Cor. 1:5; 8:1> (twice), <7,10,11; 13:2,8; 14:6; 2 Cor. 6:6; 8:7; 11:6; Eph. 3:19; Col. 2:3; 1 Pet. 3:7; 2 Pet. 1:5,6>; (b) with an object: in respect of (1) God, <2 Cor. 2:14; 10:5>; (2) the glory of God, <2 Cor. 4:6>; (3) Christ Jesus, <Phil. 3:8; 2 Pet. 3:18>; (4) salvation, <Luke 1:77>; (c) subjectively, of God's "knowledge," <Rom. 11:33>; the word of "knowledge," <1 Cor. 12:8>; "knowledge" falsely so called, <1 Tim. 6:20>.#
