Show (Noun)[ 1,,G3056, logos ]
a word," is sometimes used of mere talk, the talk which one occasions; hence, "repute, reputation;" this seems to be the meaning in Colossians 2:23, translated "a show (AV 'show') of wisdom," i.e., "a reputation for wisdom," rather than "appearance, reason," etc. See WORD.
Note: In Luke 20:47, AV, prophasis, "a pretense" (RV), is translated "show." See CLOKE (Pretense), No. 2.
