Eloquent - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
Eloquent[ 1,,G3052, logios ]
an adjective, from logos, a word," primarily meant "learned, a man skilled in literature and the arts." In the AV of Acts 18:24, it is translated "eloquent," said of Apollos; the RV is almost certainly right in translating it "learned." It was much more frequently used among the Greeks of one who was erudite than of one who was skilled in words. He had stores of "learning" and could use it convincingly.
