G5933 - Strong's Greek Lexicon Number


Form, Appearance.
See Definition for idea { [G2397]}
See Definition for morphe { [G3444]}
See Definition for schema { [G4976]}

idea denotes merely outward appearance.

Both morphe and schema express something more than that. They too
denote outward form, but as including one's habits, activities and
modes of action in general. In morphe it is also implied that the
outward form expresses the inner essence, an idea which is absent from
schema. morphe expresses the form as that which is intrinsic and
essential, schema signifies the figure, shape, as that which is more
outward and accidental. Both schema and idea therefore deal with
externals, schema being more comprehensive than idea, while
morphe deals with externals as expressing that which is internal.
