The Greek word “doxa”

Found more than 160 times in the New Testament, the Greek noun “doxa” and other terms in this word-group afford “one of the clearest examples of change in meaning of a Gk. word, when it came under the influence of the Bible.  The basic meaning of doxa in secular Greek is opinion, conjecture.  This ranges from the opinion about a person or thing that I am prepared to defend to the valuation placed on me by others, i.e. repute, praise” (Dictionary of New Testament Theology, 2:44).

In the New Testament, this term is most often used by the apostle Paul.  In fact, nearly half the occurrences of this term in the New Testament are associated with this apostle.  When found in Matthew-Luke, “doxa” often conveys the ideas of “honor, distinction, reputation.”  John almost exclusively used this word to describe Jesus’ glory and His relationship with the Father.  When used by Paul, this term “has a depth of meaning that cannot be expressed by a simple translation.  Certainly there is the quite basic sense of honor and repute, even beauty and splendor:  ‘If a woman wears her hair long, it is a glory to her’; but there is also a religious nuance with those who ‘seek glory honor (doxan kai timēn) and immortality’” (Spicq, 1:368).

Verses which use “doxa” include Mt. 4:8; 6:13, 29; 25:31Mt. 4:8; 6:13, 29; 25:31
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

Are not even ye, before our Lord Jesus at his coming? 20 For ye are our glory and our joy.

The grass withereth, and the flower falleth: 13 but insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also ye may rejoice with exceeding joy. 5 1 The elders among you I exhort, who am a fellow-elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, who am also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: 4 And when the chief Shepherd shall be manifested, ye shall receive the crown of glory that fadeth not away. 2 1 Putting away therefore all wickedness, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2 as newborn babes, long for the spiritual milk which is without guile, that ye may grow thereby unto salvation; 3 if ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious: 4 unto whom coming, a living stone, rejected indeed of men, but with God elect, precious, 5 ye also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 Because it is contained in scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: And he that believeth on him shall not be put to shame. 7 For you therefore that believe is the preciousness: but for such as disbelieve, The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner; 8 and, A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence; for they stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. 9 But ye are a elect race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that ye may show forth the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10 who in time past were no people, but now are the people of God: who had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 11 Beloved, I beseech you as sojourners and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly lust, which war against the soul; 12 having your behavior seemly among the Gentiles; that, wherein they speak against you as evil-doers, they may by your good works, which they behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. 13 Be subject to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether to the king, as supreme; 14 or unto governors, as sent by him for vengeance on evil-doers and for praise to them that do well. 15 For so is the will of God, that by well-doing ye should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16 as free, and not using your freedom for a cloak of wickedness, but as bondservants of God. 17 Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king. 18 Servants, be in subjection to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. 19 For this is acceptable, if for conscience toward God a man endureth griefs, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what glory is it, if, when ye sin, and are buffeted for it, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye shall take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. 21 For hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22 who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23 who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24 who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed. 25 For ye were going astray like sheep; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
