Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἱεράτευμα, ἱερατευματος, τό (ἱερατεύω), (priesthood i. e.)

a. the office of priest.

b. the order or body of priests (see ἀδελφότης, αἰχμαλωσία, διασπορά, θεραπεία); so Christians are called, because they have access to God and offer not external but 'spiritual' (πνευματικά) sacrifices: 1 Peter 2:5; also βασίλειον ἱεράτευμα, 1 Peter 2:9 (after Exodus 19:6, the Sept.), priests of kingly rank, i. e. exalted to a moral rank and freedom which exempts them from the control of everyone but God and Christ. (Exodus 23:22, etc.; 2 Macc. 2:17); not found in secular authors.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

No ex. of this subst. has yet been found outside Biblical and ecclesiastical Greek, but cf. OGIS51.11 (iii/B.C.) ἐκτενῶς ἑαυτὸν συνεπιδιδοὺς εἰς τὸ συναύξεσθαι τὸ τεχνίτευμα, where τεχνίτευμα seems to be used in the same collective sense of a ";body"; of artificers, as ἱεράτευμα of a ";body"; of priests in 1 Peter 2:9 : in ib..5 Hort ad l. gives good reason for preferring the meaning ";act or office of priesthood."; His whole note on this group of words should be consulted.
