Show (make a)

[ 1,,G1165, deigmatizo ]
to make a show of, expose," is used in Colossians 2:15 of Christ's act regarding the principalities and powers, displaying them "as a victor displays his captives or trophies in a triumphal procession" (Lightfoot). Some regard the meaning as being that He showed the angelic beings in their true inferiority (See under TRIUMPH). For its other occurrence, Matthew 1:19, See EXAMPLE, B, No. 1.

[ 2,,G2146, euprosopeo ]
denotes "to look well, make a fair show" (eu, "well," prosopon, "a face"), and is used in Galatians 6:12, "to make a fair show (in the flesh)," i.e., "to make a display of religious zeal." Deissmann illustrates the metaphorical use of this word from the papyri in Light from the Ancient East, p. 96.

Note: For parateresis, AV marg. in Luke 17:20, "outward show," See OBSERVATION.
