Compare: { [G1108]} { [G4678]}

1108 denotes knowledge by itself, 4678 denotes wisdom as
exhibited in action, 1108 applies chiefly to the
apprehension of truths, 4678 adds the power of reasoning
about them and tracing their relationships.

Compare: { [G4678]}, { [G4907]}, { [G5428]}

4678-denotes a "mental excellence of the highest sense", to
details
4907-critical, apprehending the bearing of things
5428-practical, suggesting lines of action.

G5894
Wisdom, Knowledge. See Definition for sophia { [G4678]}
See Definition for phronesis { [G5428]}
See Definition for gnosis { [G1108]}
See Definition for epignosis { [G1922]}

sophia is certainly the highest word of all these. It is properly
wisdom. It denotes mental excellence in the highest and fullest
sense, expressing an attitude as well as an act of the mind.
It comprehends knowledge and implies goodness, including the striving
after the highest ends, as well as the using of the best means for
their attainment. It is never ascribed to any one but God and good
men, except in a plainly ironical sense.

phronesis is a middle term, sometimes having a meaning nearly as
high as sophia, sometimes much lower. It means prudence,
intelligence, a skillful adaptation of the means to the end
desired, the end, however, not being necessarily a good one.

gnosis is knowledge, cognition, the understanding of facts or
truths, or else insight, discernment.

epignosis has an intensive meaning as compared with gnosis, it
is a fuller, clearer, more thorough knowledge. The verb epiginosko
has the same intensive force as compared with ginosko.
