AETIOLOGY OF AN EXPRESSION - Gnomon Technical TermsAETIOLOGY OF AN EXPRESSION is, when we assign a reason why we have used this or that particular proposition or enunciation; as,-Gal 2:6, ἐμοὶ γὰρ οἱ δοκοῦντες οὐδὲν προσανέθεντο. Comp. 2Co 5:12; Heb 2:8, where the Gnomon observes, “γὰρ, for, often has the effect of an AEtiology of the expression.” See Gnom. on the passages.

Gnomon Technical Terms
The Gnomon Technical Terms was written in 1742 by Johann Albrecht Bengel and is the result of twenty years’ labor. Bengel’s Gnomon awakened a fresh interest in the study of the New Testament. The Gnomon of the New Testament is still one of the books most valued by expositors of the New Testament.
