; fem. hetéra, neut. héteron, correlative pronoun. Other but different, another.
(I) Particularly and definitely with the art. ho héteros, the other of two where one has been already mentioned (Mat 6:24; Luk 5:7; Luk 7:41; Luk 23:40; 1Co 14:17). In Luk 4:43, in those "other [hetérais] cities" where the gospel has not yet been preached. In distinction from oneself, another person (Rom 2:1; 1Co 4:6; 1Co 14:17; Gal 6:4; Jas 4:12). In Act 20:15, "on the other" (a.t.), implies day meaning the next day, the day after; also Act 27:3.
(II) Indef. and without the art., other, another, some other, equivalent to állos (G243), another, but with a stronger expression of difference.
(A) In Mat 8:21, "another of his disciples"; Luk 8:3; Joh 19:37; Act 1:20; Eph 3:5, "in other ages" means former generations (Sept.: Gen 4:25; Gen 8:10). Joined with tis (G5100), someone indefinitely; héterós tis, some other one, any other (Act 8:34; Act 27:1; Rom 8:39; 1Ti 1:10). Distributively, either repeated as 1Co 15:40, hétera mén . . . hétera dé, some [pl.] . . . and others, or with other pron. (Mat 16:14; Luk 11:16; Luk 14:19-20; 1Co 12:9-10; Sept.: Gen 31:49; Exo 26:3).
(B) Of another kind, another, different, in another form
(Mar 16:12; Act 7:18; Rom 7:23; Gal 1:6; Jas 2:25); of a priest from a different line or family (Heb 7:11, Heb 7:15). In the sense of foreign, strange (Jud 1:7; Sept.: Exo 30:9); of other languages (Act 2:4; 1Co 14:21). See glṓssa (G1100, II, C), tongue. Contrast állos (G243), another numerically or coming after. Héteros and héteros repeated, one and another different from each other (1Co 15:40). Different, altered (Luk 9:29).
Deriv.: heteróglōssos (G2084), one of a different tongue; heterodidaskaléō (G2085), to teach a doctrine different than one's own; hetérōs (G2088), otherwise, differently; póteron (G4220), which of two?
héteros/ἕτερος [other, another]
In the NT héteros is used in much the same way as állos, but does not occur in several books (e.g., Mark, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Peter, Revelation). It denotes the new member in a series that either continues (Lk. 14:18ff.) or concludes it (Acts 15:35). It may denote others either of the same kind (Acts 17:34; Lk. 4:34) or of another kind (Lk. 23:32). It may compare or contrast two groups (Acts 23:6), but can also simply denote the next day (Acts 20:15). At times there may be the hint of a qualitative distinction, as in Mt. 11:3 ("Shall we look for another?"); Mk. 16:12 ("another form," i.e., that of a traveler); Lk. 9:29 (Jesus' transfigured face). The "other tongues" of Acts 2:4 may simply refer to tongues as in 10:46; 1 Cor. 12:10; 14:1ff., but in this case "other" would seem to be superfluous, and we should have to assume that, since the later tongues are unintelligible, the true miracle is that the people are granted a gift of understanding, which, in spite of Acts 2:6, 11, is not very convincing. Thus the alternative view that they spoke in foreign languages seems alone to do full justice to the phrase, especially in the light of v. 11 (though cf. the contemptuous reference in v. 13). In Acts 17:7 the point of the charge against Paul is that he is proclaiming a rival to the emperor. In Rom. 7:23 the other law which differs from the holy law of God, and the law of reason that assents to it, is the law of sin that dwells in our members and enslaves us. 1 Cor. 15:40 refers to the different glory of celestial and terrestrial bodies. Eph. 3:5 contrasts the present age of salvation with all preceding generations. Phil. 3:15 may refer either to failure to attain to the preceding insights or to more general divergence from Paul. In Heb. 7:11ff. Jesus is the other priest who, as is shown in detail, both fulfils and transcends Melchizedek. What has come in Jesus is different in the sense that it excludes any other way of salvation (1 Cor. 8:4; Acts 4:12), so that decision is demanded. "another gospel" (Gal. 1:6) is not really another, let alone a better; it is no gospel at all (cf. 2 Cor. 11:4). ho héteros can also be used for the neighbor, a Thou as distinct from the I (cf. Rom. 2:1). The law of Christ is to seek the other's good (1 Cor. 10:24). Self-giving to others fulfils the law (Rom. 13:8). The other here is not a collective concept but denotes the person who in a specific situation crosses my path and whose edification is my concern (1 Cor. 14:17).
