Suicer, Thesaurus, under the word). Commonly, however, the word denotes the restoration of a thing to its pristine state, its renovation, as the renewal or restoration of life after death, Philo leg. ad Gaium § 41; de cherub. § 32; (de poster.

Gataker ad loc.); Zeller, Philos. d. Griech. iii, p. 138); that signal and glorios change of all things (in heaven and earth) "for the better, that restoration of the primal and perfect condition of things which existed before the fall of our first parents," which the Jews looked for in connection with the advent of the Messiah, and which the primitive Christians expected in connection with the visible return of Jesus from heaven: Matthew 19:28 (where the Syriac correctly )tDX )MLOB [], in the new age or world); cf. Bertholdt, Christologia Judaeorum, p. 214 f; Gfrörer, Jahrhundert des Heils, ii., p. 272ff; ( Schürer, Neutest. Zeitgesch. § 29,9; Weber, Altsynagog. Paläst. Theol. § 89).
