Kühner, § 343, under the word; (Veitch, under the word)); (φάω); in Greek writings from Homer down; to bring forth into the light, cause to shine; to show. In Biblical Greek:
1. Active intransitively, to shine, shed light (which the Greeks (commonly (cf. Liddell and Scott, under the word, A. II.)) express by the passive), the Sept. for הֵאִיר: τό φῶς φαίνει, John 1:5; 1 John 2:8; λύχνος, John 5:35; 2 Peter 1:19 (1 Macc. 4:50; Genesis 1:17); ἥλιος, Revelation 1:16; ἥλιος καί σελήνη, Revelation 21:23; ἡμέρα, Revelation 8:12 Rec.
2. Passive,

c. to meet the eyes, strike the sight, become clear or manifest, with a predicate nominative (be seen to be) (cf. Buttmann, § 144, 15 a., 18): Matthew 6:16, 18; Matthew 23:27; 2 Corinthians 13:7; ἵνα (namely, ἁμαρτία) φανῇ ἁμαρτία (equivalent to ἁμαρτωλός), Romans 7:13; with the dative of the person added, Matthew 6:5 (namely, προσευχόμενοι praying); to be seen, appear: ἁμαρτωλός ποῦ φανεῖται; i. e. he will nowhere be seen, will perish, 1 Peter 4:18.
d. to appear to the mind, seem to one's judgment or opinion: τί ὑμῖν φαίνεται (A. V. what think ye), Mark 14:64 (1 Esdr. 2:18 (21)); ἐφάνησαν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν ὡσεί ληροι, Luke 24:11 (Winers Grammar, § 33 f.; Buttmann, § 133, 3. Synonym: see δοκέω, at the end.)
