Thayer's Expanded Definition
 παράδοσις, παραδοσεως, (παραδίδωμι), a giving over, giving up; i. e.

1. the act of giving up, the surrender: of cities, Polybius 9,25, 5; Josephus, b. j. 1,8, 6; χρημάτων, Aristotle, pol. 5,7, 11, p. 1309{a}, 10.

2. a giving over which is done by word of mouth or in writing, i. e. tradition by instruction, narrative, precept, etc. (see παραδίδωμι, 4); hence, equivalent to instruction, Epictetus diss. 2,23, 40; joined with διδασκαλία, Plato, legg. 7, p. 803a. objectively, what is delivered, the substance of the teaching: so of Paul's teaching, 2 Thessalonians 3:6; in plural of the particular injunctions of Paul's instruction, 1 Corinthians 11:2; 2 Thessalonians 2:15. used in the singular of a written narrative, Josephus, contra Apion 1,9, 2; 10,2; again, of the body of precepts, especially ritual, which in the opinion of the later Jews were orally delivered by Moses and orally transmitted in unbroken succession to subsequent generations, which precepts, both illustrating and expanding the written law, as they did, were to be obeyed with equal reverence ( Josephus, Antiquities 13,10, 6 distinguishes between τά ἐκ παραδοσεως τῶν πατέρων and τά γεγραμμένα, i. e. τά ἐν τοῖς Μωϋσέως νόμοις γεγραμμένα νόμιμα): Matthew 15:2f, 6; Mark 7:3,5, 9,13; with τῶν ἀνθρώπων added, as opposed to the divine teachings, Mark 7:8; Colossians 2:8 (where see Lightfoot); πατρικαι παραδόσεις, precepts received from the fathers, whether handed down in the O. T. books or orally, Galatians 1:14 ((others restrict the word here to the extra-biblical traditions; cf. Meyer or Lightfoot at the passage). Cf. B. D. American edition under the word .)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the looser use of πατήρ as a title or respect or honour, see P Oxy X. 1296 (iii/A.D.), where the writer refers to two other men as ";father"; (.15, .18) in addition to his real ";father"; (cf. .21) : cf. BGU I. 164.2 (ii/iii A.D.), P Oxy XIV. 1665.2 (iii/A.D.), ib. 1678.19 (iii/A.D.), P Strass I. 26.1 (iv/A.D.), and for a literary reference Menandrea, p. 9.13. In P Par 60.3 (B.C. 154) Apollonius addresses his eldest brother as πατήρ, apparently as head of the family : see Wilcken’s note in UPZ i. p. 321 where exception is taken to the view that the title indicates membership in the same religious community, as suggested in Otto Priester i.p. 124 n..3, Selections, p. 22. In P Lond 1178.10 (A.D. 194) (= III. p. 216) the Emperor Claudius is designated πατὴρ πατρίδος (pater patriae).

With 1 Timothy 5:1 we may compare the fragment of a Christian letter, P Oxy XII. 1592 (iii/iv A.D.), where a woman addresses her spiritual ";father"; as .3 κ (ύρι)έ μου π (άτε)ρ, and rejoices .5 ὅτει τοιοῦτός μου π (ατ)ὴρ τὴν μνήμην ποιεῖται. In the early Christian letter P Amh I. 3ii. 16 (between A.D. 264 and 282) τὸν πατέρα Ἀπολλῶνιν, Harnack, Geschichte II. 2. p. 180, regards πατέρα as the title of the provincial bishop, but Deissmann (LAE, p. 196) thinks that the writer is speaking of his real father, and similarly Ghedini Lettere, p. 71 f. It may be noted that the idea of the Divine ";Fatherhood"; is fully discussed by Westcott Epp. of St. John, p. 27 ff.

For the anarthrous πατήρ cf. Proleg. pp. 71 f., 82 f., and Abbott Joh. Gr. p. 96 f., and for a probable use of πάτηρ as voc. see P Par 51.36 (B.C. 159) (= UPZ i. p. 360). A form πάτρα or πατρά denoting probably ";sister by the father’s side"; occurs in C. and B. ii. p. 394, No. 272 : see Ramsay’s note.

Exx. of πατρόθεν are Syll 216 (= .3 426).10 (B.C. 270–261) ὅπως ἀναγραϕ ̣ῆι τὸ ὄνομα αὐ [τοῦ π ]ατρόθεν ἐν τῆι στήληι, ib. 645 (= .3 1047).41 (c. B.C. 100) ἀναγραψάντων. . . τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ δανεισαμένου πατρόθεν.
