Smith's Bible Dictionary
Hel'lenist. (Grecian). The term applied, in the New Testament, to Greek-speaking or "Grecian" Jews. The Hellenists, as a body, included not only the proselytes of Greek, (or foreign), parentage, but also those Jews who, by settling in foreign countries, had adopted the prevalent form of the current Greek civilization, and with it, the use of the common Greek dialect. Acts 6:1; Acts 9:29.
