HELPS word-Studies

3651 holotelḗs (an adjective, derived from 3650 /hólos, "whole" and 5056 /télos, "end-purpose") – properly, wholly (holistically), "fully-layered" (all levels present) – describing someone reaching the end-goal of "entire sanctification." 3651 /holotelḗs ("entirely") is only used in 1 Thes 5:23.

[3651 /holotelḗs is rare outside the NT, but occurs four times in Hermas (about ad 140) – again expressing the idea of "full continuity (unbroken, complete)" (TDNT, 5, 174).]
