Matthew 12:36 Every idle word [παν ρημα αργον]
An ineffective, useless word A word that does no good and so is pernicious like pernicious anaemia. It is a solemn thought. Jesus who knows our very thoughts (Matthew 12:25) insists that our words reveal our thoughts and form a just basis for the interpretation of character (Matthew 12:37). Here we have judgment by words as in 25:31-46 where Jesus presents judgment by deeds. Both are real tests of actual character. Homer spoke of “winged words” And by the radio our words can be heard all round the earth. Who knows where they stop? [source]
Matthew 27:14 And he gave him no answer, not even to one word [και ουκ απεκριτη αυτωι προς ουδε εν ρημα]
Jesus refused to answer the charges of the Jews (Matthew 27:12). Now he continued silent under the direct question of Pilate. The Greek is very precise besides the double negative. “He did not reply to him up to not even one word.” This silent dignity amazed Pilate and yet he was strangely impressed.sa120 [source]
Luke 1:37 No word [ουκ ρημα]
ημα — Rhēma brings out the single item rather than the whole content So in Luke 1:38. [source]
Luke 2:15 This thing [το ρημα τουτο]
A Hebraistic and vernacular use of ρημα — rhēma (something said) as something done. See Luke 1:65. The ancient Greek used logos in this same way. [source]
Luke 3:2 The Word of God came unto John [εγενετο ρημα τεου επι Ιωανην]
The great epoch marked by εγενετο — egeneto rather than ην — ēn ημα τεου — Rhēma theou is some particular utterance of God (Plummer), common in lxx, here alone in the N.T. Then John is introduced as the son of Zacharias according to Chapter 1. Matthew describes him as the Baptist, Mark as the Baptizer. No other Gospel mentions Zacharias. Mark begins his Gospel here, but Matthew and Luke have two Infancy Chapters before. Luke alone tells of the coming of the word to John. All three Synoptics locate him “in the wilderness” (εν τηι ερημωι — en tēi erēmōi) as here, Mark 1:4; Matthew 3:1 (adding “of Judea”). [source]
Luke 18:34 This saying was hid from them [ην το ρημα τουτο κεκρυμμενον απ αυτων]
Past perfect passive indicative (periphrastic), state of completion. It was a puzzling experience. No wonder that Luke tries three times to explain the continued failure of the apostles to understand Jesus. The words of Christ about his death ran counter to all their hopes and beliefs. [source]
Acts 28:25 They departed [ειποντος του Παυλου ρημα εν]
Imperfect middle (direct) indicative, “They loosed themselves from Paul.” Graphic close. After that Paul had spoken one word (καλως — eipontos tou Paulou rhēma hen). Genitive absolute. One last word (like a preacher) after the all day exposition. Well Cf. Matthew 14:7; Mark 7:6, Mark 7:9 (irony). Here strong indignation in the very position of the word (Page). To your fathers (ημων — pros tous pateras humōn). So Aleph A B instead of hēmōn (our) like Stephen in Acts 7:52 whose words Paul had heard. By mentioning the Holy Spirit Paul shows (Knowling) that they are resisting God (Acts 7:52). [source]
Romans 10:8 The word of faith [το ρημα της πιστεως]
The gospel message concerning faith (objective genitive). Only here. In contrast to the law. Which we preach (ο κηρυσσομεν — ho kērussomen). The living voice brings home to every one the faith kind of righteousness. Paul seizes upon the words of Moses with the orator‘s instinct and with rhetorical skill (Sanday and Headlam) applies them to the facts about the gospel message about the Incarnation and Resurrection of Christ.
