Wordy Wednesday: Kairos

What it means

Greek

καιρός

Transliteration/Pronunciation

kairos/kī-ro’s

Strong’s

G2540

Definition

Primary meaning is time, season. Specifically it carries the idea of an appointed or anticipated time rather than a sequential set of moments like chronos, the other word commonly translated as time. Interestingly enough, this is also the name of one of the Greek gods which, while not uncommon, indicates the unique importance placed on this word outside of a simple description of chronological events.
