Vocabulary of the Greek NT

derived from φθινόπωρον (cf. P Cairo Zen I. 59020.4—B.C. 258), a compound from φθίνουσα ὀπώρα, ";the concluding portion of the ὀπώρα,"; and hence ";autumnal ";cf, Moulton Gr. ii. § 106, p. 279 f. In Jud. 1:12 the epithet is applied to false teachers,δένδρα φθινοπωρινὰ ἄκαρπα, ";autumn trees without fruit"; (RV) : they were barren at the very time when fruit might be expected (cf. Luk. 13:6 ff.). See the full discussion of the word with many reff. in Mayor Ep. of Jude , p. 55 ff., and add from the papyri the calendar P Hib I. 27.170 (B.C. 301–240) κ ̄γ ̄ ἰσημερῖα φθινοπωρινῆ. MGr ρθινοπωρινός ";autumnal.";
