Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
θύρα thýra, thoo'-rah; apparently a primary word (compare "door"); a portal or entrance (the opening or the closure, literally or figuratively):—door, gate.
STRONGS NT 2374: θύρα
θύρα, θύρας, (from θύω to rush in, properly, that through which a rush is made; hence, German Thür (English door; Curtius, § 319)) (from Homer down), the Sept. for דֶּלֶת and פֶּתַח, sometimes also for שַׁעַר; a (house) door; (in plural equivalent to Latinfores, folding doors; cf. Winers Grammar, 176 (166); Buttmann, 24 (21); cf. πύλη);
a. properly: κλείειν, etc. τήν θύραν, Matthew 6:6; Luke 13:25; passive, Matthew 25:10; Luke 11:7; John 20:19, 26; Acts 21:30; ἀνοίγειν, Acts 5:19; passive Acts 16:26f; κρούειν, Acts 12:13; διά τῆς θυρης, John 10:1f; πρός τήν θύραν, Mark 1:33; Mark 11:4 (Tr WH omit τήν; cf. Winer's Grammar, 123 (116)); Acts 3:2; τά πρός τήν θύραν the vestibule (so Buttmann, § 125, 9; others the space or parts at (near) the door), Mark 2:2; πρός τῇ θύρα John 18:16; ἐπί τῇ θύρα, Acts 5:9; πρό τῆς θύρας, Acts 12:6; ἐπί τῶν θυρῶν, Acts 5:23 (R G πρό).
b. θύρα is used of any opening like a door, an entrance, way or passage into: θύρα τοῦ μνημείου, of the tomb, Matthew 27:60; Matthew 28:2 R G; Mark 15:46; Mark 16:3, (Homer, Odyssey 9, 243; 12, 256; others).
c. in parable and metaphorically, we find α. θύρα τῶν προβάτων, the door through which the sheep go out and in, the name of him who brings salvation to those who follow his guidance, John 10:7, 9; cf. Christ. From Fritzsche in Fritzschiorum opuscc., p. 20ff; (in Ignatius ad Philad. 9 [ET] Christ is called θύρα τοῦ πατρός, δἰ ἧς ἐισερχονται Ἀβραάμ... καί οἱ προφῆται; cf. Harnack on Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 48, 3f [ET]). β. 'an open door' is used of the opportunity of doing something: τῆς πίστεως, of getting faith, Acts 14:27; open to a teacher, i. e. the opportunity of teaching others, 2 Corinthians 2:12; Colossians 4:3; by a bold combination of metaphor and literal language, the phrase θύρα μεγάλη καί ἐνεργής (A. V. a great door and effectual) is used of a large opportunity of teaching a great multitude the way of salvation, and one encouraging the hope of the most successful results: 1 Corinthians 16:9. γ. the door of the kingdom of heaven (likened to a palace) denotes the conditions which must be complied with in order to be received into the kingdom of God: Luke 13:24 (for Rec. πύλης); power of entering, access into, God's eternal kingdom, Revelation 3:8 cf. Revelation 3:7 (but others besides; add here Revelation 4:1). δ. he whose advent is just at hand is said ἐπί θύραις εἶναι, Matthew 24:33; Mark 13:29, and πρό θυρῶν ἑστηκεναι, James 5:9. ε. ἑστηκώς ἐπί τήν θύραν καί κρούων is said of Christ seeking entrance into souls, and they who comply with his entreaty are said ἀνοίγειν τήν θύραν, Revelation 3:20.
