1: ἀποκατάστασις

(Strong's #605 — Noun Feminine — apokatastasis — ap-ok-at-as'-tas-is )

from apo, "back, again," kathistemi, "to set in order," is used in Acts 3:21 , RV, "restoration" (AV, "restitution"). See under REGENERATION , concerning Israel in its regenerated state hereafter. In the papyri it is used of a temple cell of a goodess, a "repair" of a public way, the "restoration" of estates to rightful owners, a "balancing" of accounts. Apart from papyri illustrations the word is found in an Egyptian reference to a consummating agreement of the word's cyclical periods, an idea somewhat similar to that in the Acts passage (Moulton and Milligan).
