epilusis: a release, an interpretationOriginal Word: ἐπίλυσις, εως, ἡPart of Speech:
solution, explanation, interpretationDefinition:
solution, explanation, interpretation; release.
1955 epílysis (from 1909 /epí, "on, fitting" and 3089 /lýō, "to loose") – properly, unloosing (unpacking) in an apt (appropriate) manner, i.e. that builds on sound hermeneutical principles (note the epi, "upon").
1955 /epílysis ("sound interpretation") only occurs in 2 Pet 1:20 and refers to "untying interpretation knots" to discern the true meaning of future Bible prophecy.
[1956 (epilýō) is used throughout antiquity of solving problems, i.e. "getting to the bottom of things," "unraveling" the issue (see DNTT, 1, 156).]
