(Strong's #4745 — Noun Feminine — stoa — sto-ah' )

"a portico," is used (a) of the "porches" at the pool of Bethesda, John 5:2; (b) of the covered colonnade in the Temple, called Solomon's "porch," John 10:23; Acts 3:11; 5:12 a portico on the eastern side of the temple; this and the other "porches" existent in the time of Christ were almost certainly due to Herod's restoration. Cp. Stoics ( Acts 17:18 ), "philosophers of the porch."
