Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀκολουθέω akolouthéō, ak-ol-oo-theh'-o; from G1 (as a particle of union) and κέλευθος kéleuthos (a road); properly, to be in the same way with, i.e. to accompany (specially, as a disciple):—follow, reach.
STRONGS NT 190: ἀκολουθέω
ἀκολουθέω, -ῶ; future ἀκολουθήσω; imperfect ἠκολούθουν; 1 aorist ἠκολούθησα; perfect ἠκολούθηκα (Mark 10:28 L T Tr WH); (from ἀκόλουθος, and this from α copulative and κέλευθος road, properly, walking the same road);
1. to follow one who precedes, join him as his attendant, accompany him: Matthew 4:25; Matthew 8:19; Matthew 9:19; Matthew 27:55; Mark 3:7; Mark 5:24 [Mark 5:37 Lachmann]; Mark 14:51 [R G]; Luke 22:39, 54; Luke 23:27; John 1:37f, John 1:43 (John 1:44); John 6:2; 18:15; 20:6, etc.; Acts 12:8; Acts 13:43; Acts 21:36; 1 Corinthians 10:4; distinguished from προάγειν in Matthew 21:9; Mark 11:9; tropically, τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν ἀκολουθεῖ μετ’ αὐτῶν, their good deeds will accompany them to the presence of God the judge to be rewarded by him, Revelation 14:13; on the other hand, ἠκολούθησαν αὐτῆς αἱ ἁμαρτίαι ἄχρι τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, Revelation 18:5, but here for ἠκολούθησαν G L T Tr WH have restored ἐκολλήθησαν; [σημεῖα τοῖς πιστεύσασιν ἀκολουθήσει ταῦτα, Mark 16:17 Tr WH text (where others παρακολ. which see)], to follow one in time, succeed one: Revelation 14:8f. (Herodian, 1, 14, 12 (6) τὰ γοῦν ἀκολουθήσαντα, others). Since among the ancients disciples were accustomed to accompany their masters on their walks and journeys — [others derive the usage that follows from the figurative sense of the word directly; cf. e. g. 2 Macc. 8:36 τὸ ἀκολουθεῖν τοῖς νόμοις; M. Antoninus l. vii. § 31 ἀκολούθησον θεῷ, and Gataker at the passage], ἀκολουθέω denotes
2. to join one as a disciple, become or be his disciple; side with his party, [A. V. follow him]: Matthew 4:20, 22; Matthew 9:9; Matthew 19:27; Mark 1:18; Mark 8:34; Luke 5:11, 27, etc.; John 8:12 (where Jesus likens himself to a torch which the disciple follows); οὐκ ἀκολουθεῖ ἡμῖν he is not of our band of thy disciples, Mark 9:38 to cleave steadfastly to one, conform wholly to his example, in living and if need be in dying also: Matthew 10:38; Matthew 16:24; John 12:26; John 21:22. This verb is not found in the Epistles except in 1 Corinthians 10:4. As in the classics, it is joined mostly with a dative of the object; sometimes with μετά τινος, Luke 9:49; Revelation 6:8 [Treg. marginal reading dative]; Rev 14:13; (so also in Greek writings; cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 353f; [Rutherford, New Phryn., p. 458f]); ὀπίσω τινός, Matthew 10:38; Mark 8:34 (where R L WH Tr marginal reading ἐλθεῖν), Hebrew הָלַךְ פְּלֹנִי אַחֲרֵי, cf. 1 Kings 19:21; see Winers Grammar, 234 (219); [Buttmann, 172 (150), cf. ἀκολ. κατόπιν τινός, Aristophanes Plutarch, 13.
Compare: ἐξ-, ἐπ-, κατ-, παρ-, συνακολουθέω].
