STRONGS NT 3862: παράδοσις
παράδοσις, παραδοσεως, (παραδίδωμι), a giving over, giving up; i. e.
1. the act of giving up, the surrender: of cities, Polybius 9, 25, 5; Josephus, b. j. 1, 8, 6; χρημάτων, Aristotle, pol. 5, 7, 11, p. 1309{a}, 10.
2. a giving over which is done by word of mouth or in writing, i. e. tradition by instruction, narrative, precept, etc. (see παραδίδωμι, 4); hence, equivalent to instruction, Epictetus diss. 2, 23, 40; joined with διδασκαλία, Plato, legg. 7, p. 803 a. objectively, what is delivered, the substance of the teaching: so of Paul's teaching, 2 Thessalonians 3:6; in plural of the particular injunctions of Paul's instruction, 1 Corinthians 11:2; 2 Thessalonians 2:15. used in the singular of a written narrative, Josephus, contra Apion 1, 9, 2; 10, 2; again, of the body of precepts, especially ritual, which in the opinion of the later Jews were orally delivered by Moses and orally transmitted in unbroken succession to subsequent generations, which precepts, both illustrating and expanding the written law, as they did, were to be obeyed with equal reverence (Josephus, Antiquities 13, 10, 6 distinguishes between τά ἐκ παραδοσεως τῶν πατέρων and τά γεγραμμένα, i. e. τά ἐν τοῖς Μωϋσέως νόμοις γεγραμμένα νόμιμα): Matthew 15:2f, 6; Mark 7:3, 5, 9, 13; with τῶν ἀνθρώπων added, as opposed to the divine teachings, Mark 7:8; Colossians 2:8 (where see Lightfoot); πατρικαι παραδόσεις, precepts received from the fathers, whether handed down in the O.
