Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g52 Greek: agnoia

Ignorance, Ignorant, Ignorantly:

"want of knowledge or perception" (akin to agnoeo, "to be ignorant"), denotes "ignorance" on the part of the Jews regarding Christ, Act 3:17; of Gentiles in regard to God, 17:30; Eph 4:18 (here including the idea of willful blindness: see Rom 1:28, not the "ignorance" which mitigates guilt); 1Pe 1:14, of the former unregenerate condition of those who became believers (RV, "in the time of your ignorance").

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g56 Greek: agnosia

Ignorance, Ignorant, Ignorantly:

denotes "ignorance" as directly opposed to gnosis, which signifies "knowledge" as a result of observation and experience (a, negative, ginosko, "to know;" cp. Eng., "agnostic"); 1Cr 15:34 ("no knowledge"); 1Pe 2:15. In both these passages reprehensible "ignorance" is suggested.

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g51 Greek: agnoema

Ignorance, Ignorant, Ignorantly:

"a sin of ignorance," occurs in Hbr 9:7, "errors" (RV marg., "ignorances"). For the corresponding verb in Hbr 5:2 see B, No. 1. What is especially in view in these passages in unwitting error. For Israel a sacrifice was appointed, greater in proportion to the culpabililty of the guilty, greater, for instance, for a priest or ruler than for a private person. Sins of "ignorance," being sins, must be expiated. A believer guilty of a sin of "ignorance" needs the efficacy of the expiatory sacrifice of Christ, and finds "grace to help." Yet, as the conscience of the believer receives enlightenment, what formerly may have been done in "ignorance" becomes a sin against the light and demands a special confession, to receive forgiveness, 1Jo 1:8, 9.

A-4 Noun Strong's Number: g2399 Greek: idiotes

Ignorance, Ignorant, Ignorantly:

primarily "a private person" in contrast to a state official, hence, "a person without professional knowledge, unskilled, uneducated, unlearned," is translated "unlearned" in 1Cr 14:16, 23, 24, of those who have no knowledge of the facts relating to the testimony borne in and by a local church; "rude" in 2Cr 11:6, of the Apostle's mode of speech in the estimation of the Corinthians; "ignorant men," in Act 4:13, of the speech of the Apostle Peter and John in the estimation of the rulers, elders and scribes in Jerusalem.

While agrammatoi ("unlearned") may refer to their being unacquainted with rabbinical learning, idiotai would signify "laymen," in contrast with the religious officials.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g50 Greek: agnoeo

Ignorance, Ignorant, Ignorantly:


(a) "to be ignorant, not to know," either intransitively, 1Cr 14:38 (in the 2nd occurrence in this verse, the RV text translates the Active Voice, the margin the Passive); 1Ti 1:13, lit., "being ignorant (I did it);" Hbr 5:2, "ignorant;" or transitively, 2Pe 2:12, AV, "understand not," RV, "are ignorant (of);" Act 13:27, "knew (Him) not;" Act 17:23, RV, "(what ye worship) in ignorance," for AV, "(whom ye) ignorantly (worship)," lit., "(what) not knowing (ye worship);" also rendered by the verb "to be ignorant that," or "to be ignorant of," Rom 1:13; 10:3; 11:25; 1Cr 10:1; 12:1; 2Cr 1:8; 2:11; 1Th 4:13; "to know not," Rom 2:4; 6:3; 7:1; "to be unknown" (Passive Voice), 2Cr 6:9; Gal 1:22;

(b) "not to understand," Mar 9:32; Luk 9:45.

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g2990 Greek: lanthano

Ignorance, Ignorant, Ignorantly:

for 2Pe 3:5, 8, AV, see FORGET.

Note: For adjectives see UNLEARNED.
