Boy - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Boy

[ 1,,G3816, pais ]
denotes a boy" (in contrast to paidion, a diminutive of pais, and to teknon, "a child"). With reference to Christ, instead of the AV "child," the RV suitably translates otherwise as follows: Luke 2:43, "the boy Jesus;" Acts 4:27, Acts 4:30, "The Holy Servant, Jesus." So in the case of others, Matthew 17:18; Luke 9:42 ("boy"). See CHILD, MAID, MANSERVANT, SERVANT, SON, YOUNG MAN.
