STRONGS NT 1672: Ἕλλην
Ἕλλην, -ηνος, ;
1. a Greek by nationality, whether a native of the main land or of the Greek islands or colonies: Acts 18:17 Rec.; Ἕλληνές τε καὶ βάρβαροι, Romans 1:14.
2. in a wider sense the name embraces all nations not Jews that made the language, customs, and learning of the Greeks their own; so that where Ἕλληνες are opposed to Jews, the primary reference is to a difference of religion and worship: John 7:35 (cf. Meyer at the passage); Acts 11:20 G L T Tr [cf. B. D. American edition, p. 967]; Acts 16:1, 3; [Acts 21:28]; 1 Corinthians 1:22, 23 Rec.; Galatians 2:3 (Josephus, Antiquities 20, 11, 2); Ἰουδαῖοί τε καὶ Ἕλληνες, and the like: Acts 14:1; Acts 18:4; Acts 19:10, 17; Acts 20:21; Romans 1:16; Romans 2:9, 10; Romans 3:9; Romans 10:12; 1 Corinthians 1:24; 1 Corinthians 10:32; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:11. The word is used in the same wide sense by the Greek church Fathers, cf. Otto on Tatian, p. 2; [Sophocles' Lexicon, under the word]. The Ἕλληνες spoken of in John 12:20 and Acts 17:4 are Jewish proselytes from the Gentiles; see προσήλυτος, 2. [Cf. B. D. under the word Greece etc. (especially American edition).]
