Vocabulary of the Greek NT
";Persuasive speech"; in a somewhat depreciatory sense is evidently the meaning of this word in Colossians 2:4, its only occurrence in the Greek Bible : cf. the legal process, P Lips I. 40iii. 7 (iv/v A.D.), where one of the parties declares with reference to certain things that had been seized—διὰ πειθανολογίας τὰ ἁρπαγέντα ζητοῦσι κατέχειν. The adj. π (ε)ιθανός, which has often a similar connotation, occurs in CP Herm I. 7.20. See also Epict. i 8. 7 ἡ πιθανολογική, ";the art of persuasion.";
