aposkiasma: a shadowOriginal Word: ἀποσκίασμα, ατος, τόPart of Speech:
a shadow, a faint image or copyDefinition:
either a shadow cast by an object, or a faint image or copy of an object.
644 aposkíasma (from 575 /apó, "from" and skiazō, "cast shade") – properly, a shadow created by turning. Typically shadows change according to the changing position of the sun (being short at midday and lengthy at nightfall). But God doesn't change (shorten or lengthen!)because He Himself is His the only absolute reference point! Unlike a shifting shadow, caused by revolution, the Lord is immutable and possesses all power and life in Himself.
