Subject: Greek word for "Happening" in the New Testament - stuff that happens to happen to people :-)
I was talking to Chris last Wednesday, there’s an interesting old Greek word for "Happening" in the New Testament, here’s the list of verses below.
The Greek word is "tugchano" (Strongs 5177) — "an arrow hitting the mark", "getting/attaining (something)", "usual stuff that happens to happen following an event", and therefore a future "perhaps" word, 'cause it’s part of the future that follows people’s heart choices.
Examples: 1. Used in the Good Samaritan story about how the man was left when he "happened to be" half-way towards death, consequences of those bad actions.
2. Jesus also used it in reference about being counted worthy to "attain" the resurrection reward in a coming age i.e. consequences of good actions.
Used by Luke in the book of Acts
3. To refer to the name of the chap Eutychus "Good Happening" — Raised up after he’d hit the ground dead with death being the "usual consequences" of falling asleep out of a high up window.
4. To refer to "unusual miracles" i.e. not the "usual consequences" that people saw from God's work.
5. To refer to "unusual kindnesses" i.e. again, not the "usual consequences" of needing manly care on a "barbarous" island on which you were shipwrecked.
Full list below:
