Webster's Dictionary - Head-Lugged
(a.) Lugged or dragged by the head.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Nag's Head Story
A false historical legend purporting to describe the consecration of Matthew Parker, Elizabeth's Anglican archbishop, from whom all the Anglican clergymen derive their orders. The facts of his consecration were so obscured in mystery especially to the Catholic party, that they, in all good faith, gave credence to the tale and honestly endeavored to maintain it. According to the report, Matthew Parker and others, who were unable to obtain consecration from any Catholic bishop, while at the Nag's Head Tavern in Cheapside received consecration from Scory, the deprived Bishop of Chichester. Scory was supposed to have consecrated them by placing a Bible on the neck of each, saying, "Receive the power of preaching the Word of God sincerely." In such fashion were the Anglican Orders believed to have their origin. The story is a fable. Matthew Parker was actually consecrated in the private chapel of Lambeth, 1559, but his consecration was invalid because of the dogmatical and liturgical defects in the Ordinal used.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Head of the Church
A title for Christ (Ephesians 4:15 ; Colossians 1:18 ). In Ephesians, the metaphor of Christ as head of His body, the church, is carefully developed. Headship includes the idea of Christ's authority (Ephesians 1:22 ; Ephesians 5:23 ) and of the submission required of the church (Ephesians 5:24 ). More is in view than a statement of Christ's authority. The focus is on the character of Christ's relationship with the church. Unlike self-seeking human lords (Luke 22:25 ), Christ exercises His authority for the church (Ephesians 1:22 NRSV, NIV), nourishing and caring for the church as one cares for one's own body ( Ephesians 5:29 ). Christ's headship also points to the interrelationship of Christ and the church. The mystery of husband and wife becoming “one flesh” is applied to Christ and the church (Ephesians 5:31 ), which is “the fullness of him that filleth all in all” (Ephesians 1:23 ). In Colossians 1:18 , the idea of Christ as head is again complex, including not only the idea of head as authority but of head as source (Colossians 1:15-20 ). The church is called to follow its head and to rest secure in its relationship with Him.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Covering the Head
In 1 Corinthians 11:1-16 , Paul dealt with the matter of covering the head in worship services. This extended treatment shows that this must have been a subject of considerable interest in Corinth.
The Jewish custom was for all women to cover their heads with a veil when they went outside their homes. To appear in public without a veil was a sign of immodesty and lack of virtue. To appear in a worship service without a veil was unthinkable.
Some of the Corinthian Christian women had evidently appeared in worship without a veil on their heads. Perhaps they had understood Paul's emphasis on Christian freedom to mean that they no longer had to observe any of the old Jewish customs—including that of wearing a veil.
The effects of such a change in dress style had been disruptive to the worship services and Christian witness in Corinth. This led Paul to state that a woman should cover her head during the worship service. At the same time, he encouraged the men to follow the Jewish custom of worshiping with uncovered heads.
Paul cited various reasons in 1 Corinthians 11:1-16 for his position. He referred to: (1) the order in creation ( 1 Corinthians 11:3 ), (2) social customs of the time (1 Corinthians 11:4-6 ), (3) the presence of angels (1 Corinthians 11:10 ), (4) nature itself (1 Corinthians 11:13-15 ), and (5) the common practice in the churches (1 Corinthians 11:16 ).
The principle here is that Christians must be sensitive to the cultures in which they live. They should not needlessly flout local customs unless there is some moral reason to do so. To be insensitive to the culture in which one lives causes one to offend many of the people whom the church is trying to win to Jesus Christ. It diverts attention away from the most important thing and focuses it on peripheral matters. See Corinth ; Worship ; Women.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Head
Literally, the uppermost part of the body considered to be the seat of life, but not the intellect and figuratively for first, top, or chief. The Jewish notion was that the heart was the center or seat of the intellect. “Head” meant the physical head of a person (Genesis 48:18 ; Mark 6:24 ) or of animals, such as a bull's head (Leviticus 1:4 ). It was often used to represent the whole person (Acts 18:6 ). Achish made David “keeper of mine head,” that is his bodyguard (1 Samuel 28:2 ).
“Head” was used frequently to refer to inanimate objects such as the summit of a mountain (Exodus 17:9 ), or the top of a building (Genesis 11:4 ). The word “head” often has the meaning of “source” or “beginning,” that of rivers (Genesis 2:10 ), streets (Ezekiel 16:25 ), or of periods of time (Judges 7:19 , translated here as “beginning”).
In Psalm 118:22 , “head of the corner” (cornerstone) refers metaphorically to a king delivered by God when others had given him up (compare Matthew 21:42 ; Acts 4:11 ; 1 Peter 2:7 , where it is used in reference to the rejection of Christ). “Head” designated one in authority in the sense of the foremost person. It can mean leader, chief, or prince (Isaiah 9:15 ), and it can have the idea of first in a series (1 Chronicles 12:9 ). Israel was the “head” (translated “chief”) nation, God's firstborn (Jeremiah 31:7 ). Damascus was the “head” (capital) of Syria (Isaiah 7:8 ). A husband is the “head of the wife” (Ephesians 5:23 ).
A distinctive theological use of the word “head” was seen in the New Testament concept of the “headship” of Christ. Christ is the “head” (kephale ) of His body the church; the church is His “bride” (Ephesians 5:23-33 ). In His role as “head,” Christ enables the church to grow, knits her into a unity, nourishes her by caring for each member, and gives her strength to build herself up in love (Ephesians 4:15-16 ). Not only is Christ “head” of the church, but also He is “head” of the universe as a whole (Ephesians 1:22 ) and of every might and power (Colossians 2:10 ). The divine influences on the world result in a series: God is the “head” of Christ; Christ is the “head” of man; man is the “head” of the woman, and as such he is to love and care for his wife as Christ does His bride (1 Corinthians 11:3 ). This theological use of the word may be an extension of the Old Testament use of the word “head” for the leader of the tribe or community or may be a reaction to early Gnostic tendencies. See Gnosticism .
Because the head was the seat of life, value was placed on it. Injury to it was a chief form of defeating an enemy (Psalm 68:21 ). As part of contemptuous insult, the soldiers struck Jesus' head with a reed and crowned Him with a crown of thorns (Mark 15:16-19 ). Decapitation was a further insult after the defeat. Herodias, through treachery and out of spite, had John the Baptist beheaded (Matthew 14:1-11 ). David cut off Goliath's head and brought it before Saul (1 Samuel 17:51 ). The Philistines cut off Saul's head (1 Samuel 31:9 ), and the sons of Rimmon cut off that of Ish-bosheth (2 Samuel 4:7 ). Attested to in many inscriptions and portrayed on several monuments, it was common for the Babylonians, Assyrians, and the Egyptians to cut off the heads of their dead enemies slain in battle.
Conversely, blessing comes upon the head (Genesis 49:26 ); and, therefore, hands are laid on it (Genesis 48:17 ). Anointing the head with oil symbolized prosperity and joy (Psalm 23:5 ; Hebrews 1:9 ). In the service for ordination of priests and dedication to priestly service, the head of the high priest was anointed with oil (Exodus 29:7 ; Leviticus 16:32 ). Human sins were transferred to the animal of the sin offering by laying on of hands upon the head of the animal (Exodus 29:10 ,Exodus 29:10,29:15 ,Exodus 29:15,29:19 ).
The head is involved in several colloquial expressions. The Jew swore by his head (Matthew 5:36 ). Sadness or grief was shown by putting the hand on the head or putting ashes on it (2 Samuel 13:19 ). In other instances, grief was shown by shaving the head (Job 1:20 ). To “heap coals of fire upon his head” was to make one's enemy feel ashamed by returning his evil with good (Proverbs 15:21-22 ; Romans 12:20 ). Wagging the head expressed derision (Mark 15:29 ), but bowing the head was a sign of humility (Isaiah 58:5 ). Finally, “The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness” (Proverbs 16:31 ).

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Head-Bands
(Heb. kishshurim), properly girdles or belts for the waist (Isaiah 3:20 , RSV, "sashes;" Jeremiah 2:32 , rendered "attire", i.e., a girdle round the waist).
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Head-Dress
Not in common use among the Hebrews. It is first mentioned in Exodus 28:40 (A.V., "bonnets;" RSV, "head-tires"). It was used especially for purposes of ornament ( Job 29:14 ; Isaiah 3:23 ; 62:3 ). The Hebrew word here used, Tsaniph , Properly means a turban, folds of linen wound round the head. The Hebrew word Peer , Used in Isaiah 61:3 , there rendered "beauty" (A.V.) and "garland" (RSV), is a head-dress or turban worn by females (Isaiah 3 :: 20 , "bonnets"), priests (Exodus 39:28 ), a bridegroom (Isaiah 61:10 , "ornament;" RSV, "garland"). Ezekiel 16:10 and Jonah 2:5 are to be understood of the turban wrapped round the head. The Hebrew Shebisim ( Isaiah 3:18 ), in the Authorized Version rendered "cauls," and marg. "networks," denotes probably a kind of netted head-dress. The "horn" (Heb. keren) mentioned in 1 Samuel 2:1 is the head-dress called by the Druses of Mount Lebanon the tantura.
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Head: Christ
Everyone knows that it would be far better to lose our feet than our head. Adam had feet to stand with, but we have lost them by his disobedience; yet glory be to God, we have found a Head, in whom we abide eternally secure, a Head which we shall never lose.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Head
HEAD . Not the head but the heart was regarded as the seat of intellect; it was, however, the seat of life, and was naturally held in honour. Hence phrases such as ‘keeper of my head’ ( 1 Samuel 28:2 ; cf. Psalms 140:7 ), ‘swearing by the head’ ( Matthew 5:36 ), and the metaphorical use, common to all languages, as equivalent to ‘chief.’ In Deuteronomy 28:13 , Isaiah 9:14 , we find ‘head and tail’ as a proverbial expression. Christ is the head of the Church ( Ephesians 4:15 , Colossians 1:18 ; Colossians 2:19 ), as man is of the woman ( Ephesians 5:23 ). To lift up the head is to grant success ( Psalms 27:6 ; Psalms 110:7 , Genesis 41:13 , where there is an obvious ironical parallel in Genesis 41:19 ). The hand on the head was a sign of mourning ( 2 Samuel 13:19 , Jeremiah 2:37 ); so dust or ashes ( 2 Samuel 1:2 , Lamentations 2:10 ); or covering the head ( 2 Samuel 15:30 , Jeremiah 14:3 ). On the other hand, to uncover the head, i.e . to loose the turban and leave the hair in disorder, was also a sign of mourning (see AV [1] and RVm [2] , Leviticus 10:6 ; Leviticus 13:45 , Ezekiel 24:17 ). Similarly shaving the head , a common practice in the East ( Job 1:20 , Isaiah 15:2 ; Isaiah 22:12 , Ezekiel 7:18 , Amos 8:10 ); it was forbidden to priests ( Leviticus 21:5 ), and, in special forms, to all Israelites ( Leviticus 19:27 , Deuteronomy 14:1 ). It might also mark the close of a period of mourning ( Deuteronomy 21:12 ), or of a Nazirite’s vow ( Numbers 6:9 , Acts 18:18 ), or of a Levite’s purification ( Numbers 8:7 ). In Deuteronomy 32:42 there is a reference to the warrior’s long hair, RVm [2] . Laying hands on the head was ( a ) part of the symbolism of sacrifice ( Leviticus 16:21 ), ( b ) a sign of blessing ( Genesis 48:14 ), ( c ) a sign of consecration or ordination ( Numbers 27:23 , Acts 6:6 ). In 2 Kings 2:3 the reference seems to be to the pupil sitting at the feet of his master. ‘Head’ is also used, like ‘face,’ as a synonym for ‘self’ ( Psalms 7:16 ; and probably Proverbs 25:22 , Romans 12:20 ).

Webster's Dictionary - Head Gear
(n.) Alt. of Headgear
Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Head, Headship
The head is the topmost part of the body, where symbols of power, authority, and honor were displayed. Kings and priests were anointed on their heads, and this is where their crowns were placed (1 Samuel 10:1 ; 2 Samuel 1:10 ; 2 Kings 9:3 ; Psalm 21:3 ).
Adam was crowned with glory and honor (Psalm 8:5 ). Prudent men wear knowledge there (Proverbs 14:18 ). Gray hair is a symbol of glory (Proverbs 16:31 ) that younger people must respect (Leviticus 19:32 ). Lifting up of the head was symbolic of promotion (Genesis 40:13 ; Psalm 3:3 ). Saul was head and shoulders above everyone else (1 Samuel 9:2 ).
The head is a site where beauty is displayed (Song of Solomon 5:11 ; 7:5 ). It is a place where much time and effort is spent on techniques of beautification (2 Kings 9:30 ; Isaiah 3:24 ; Jeremiah 4:30 ; Ezekiel 23:40 ). It is where the power of one's personality shines forth.
It is a center of communication. Blushing, tears, paleness, and flushing may show fear, anger, or mourning. Tossing, shaking, or wagging of the head may convey wonder, mockery, or rejection (Isaiah 37:22 ). The eyes, mouth, and facial features may show favor, boldness, sadness, impudence, or scorn (Genesis 4:6 ; Nehemiah 2:2 ; Proverbs 7:13 ; Isaiah 3:16 ).
From the king's head comes his words, which may have power of life or death (Ecclesiastes 8:4 ). Hence in the Septuagint Greek Old Testament translation kephale [1] may be used of an older, prominent person, a chieftan, or a king.
Covering the Head as a Social Custom . While Greek women sometimes covered their heads, there was no social compulsion for them to wear a veil in public. Greek statues show bare-headed Greek women displaying extravagant hairstyles. Jews regarded this as typical of Gentiles.
Required head coverings for women are an Eastern custom. A Middle Assyrian law required that all women except prostitutes and slaves be veiled. Jewish communities of the New Testament period were strict about this. The Mishnah (a.d. 250) held that failure to comply was grounds for divorce (Ketubin 7:6).
A moral, unmarried woman even wore a veil in front of her parents. Removal of the veil was a sign of disgrace (3Macc 4:6). Philo of Alexandria indicated that this regularly worn covering was a symbol of modesty (Special Laws 3.56; Josephus Ant . 3.270). Women charged with adultery had this veil removed.
Jewish men often refused to cover their heads because it represented subjection to foreigners. Men covered their heads in times of despair, mourning, and defeat (2 Samuel 15:30 ; Esther 6:12 ; Jeremiah 14:3 ).
"Paul of Tarsus" (Acts 9:11 ) was accustomed to seeing women veiled in public. Dion Chrysostom, an orator (a.d. 110), commended ladies there because they never appeared unveiled in public.
William Ramsey saw the woman's head covering as her power. It authorized her to go anywhere in public with respect and protection. Women who failed to wear veils would be objects of contempt and abuse. This might explain why Paul says "a woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head" (1 Corinthians 11:10 ). Interestingly Aramaic words for "authority" and "veil" are similar.
First Corinthians 11:2-16 . Corinth was a port city and a commercial crossroad. Many customs and styles were present. The church there grew out of the synagogue (Acts 18:4,7,8 ). New Testament churches were often located in houses of wealthy converts. Rich Greek women would appear uncovered with elaborate hairstyles.
Poorer Jewish women might feel such customs were done to attract men. This would eventually become a source of disunity. It is not surprising Paul introduces this passage by an exhortation not to offend Jew or Greek. He offers himself as an example of one who tried to please everybody for the sake of their salvation (1 Corinthians 10:31-11:1 ). He closes the passage by stating the churches of God repudiate practices that might cause contention (11:16).
In 11:2 Paul praises the Corinthians for always following his directions. Evidently he had previously taught use of veils by women there. As the church grew many wanted to know the reason for this custom.
Paul begins by presenting a hierarchy of headship: God, Christ, man, and woman. Paul regularly uses the idea of headship in a context of submission to authority (Ephesians 5:21-25 ; Colossians 1:18 ; 2:10,19 ). A man may pray to God in public but not dressed so that he shows allegiance to another, namely, with head covered. A woman may pray and prophesy in public if her dress shows submission to her husband's authority (1 Corinthians 11:5-6 ).
If people do not treat each other with respect, their prayers may be hindered (1 Peter 3:7 ). If a woman's outward appearance reflects gentleness and submission to her husband, it may win him to Christ (1 Peter 3:1-6 ). The appearance of women who take part in the service should show respect to required social customs. Use of head coverings enhanced the acceptance of a woman's contribution to the service.
Paul based his view about the woman's place in the authority continuum on Genesis 2:18-24 . Here the woman is formed from man's side in response to a need for companionship and help. She is not formed from dust but was taken from Adam. As a suitable helper she makes man complete.
Woman reflects the glory of God in man so that both bear the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27 ). As a suitable complement to the man, a noble wife is his crown (Proverbs 12:4 ). Genesis Rabbah, an ancient Jewish commentary, stated her husband is adorned by her. Her pleasures, beauties, and charms are for her husband alone (Proverbs 5:17 ). She is covered as a sign that she is accessible to none but him.
Headship of Husbands . Headship does not mean that man is an unlimited monarch. He is to cherish and nurture his wife as his own body (Ephesians 5:28 ). He may not deprive her of what she needs for her happiness and well-being (1 Corinthians 7:3 ). He must be understanding, considerate, and respectful of her as a joint heir of life (1 Peter 3:7 ). His love for her is more than physical. It must be the same kind of sacrificial love Christ has for the church.
Sarah is presented as an example of the submissive wife (1 Peter 3:5-6 ). She assented to his decisions even when he was wrong (Genesis 12:11-13 ). Yet Abraham also listened to her (Genesis 16:2 ). In Genesis 21:12 God tells Abraham to "listen to whatever Sarah tells you" (about Ishmael). Sarah's orders about Ishmael were used by Paul as binding Scripture in his teaching about law and grace ( Galatians 4:30 ). Even though Sarah is obedient, her thoughts and her feelings may not be disregarded and trampled upon. There is a place for mutual submission one to another (Ephesians 5:21 ).
Christ as Head of His Church . The church must submit to Christ. We are not our own but are bought with a price (1 Corinthians 3:23 ; 6:19-20 ; Ephesians 5:23-33 ). He has all authority in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18 ). He is the head of all principality and power (Colossians 2:10 ). People who wander from Christ are like those who have lost their heads (Colossians 2:18-19 ). Without the head no nourishment or growth is possible (Ephesians 4:15 ; Colossians 2:19 ). Paul was not dealing in philosophical speculation in his headship analogies. Even the simplest person knew that food, water, and air were taken in by head. He would know that the eyes and ears gave guidance to the whole body.

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Head
The importance attributed to the head in ancient psychology must not be supposed to spring from scientific knowledge of the function of the brain and nervous system. ‘The psychical importance of the head would be an early result of observation of the phenomena and source of the senses of sight, hearing, taste, and smell, and of such facts as the pulsation of the fontanel in infants and the fatal effect of wounds in this complex centre of the organism’ (A. E. Crawley, The Idea of the Soul, 1909, p. 239). Plato assigned reason to the brain, ‘the topographically higher region being Correlated with the reason’s higher worth’ (Aristotle, Psychology, translation W. A. Hammond, 1902, Introd. p. xxvi); but, to Aristotle, ‘the brain is merely a regulator for the temperature of the heart’ (ib. p. xxiv). By the time of Galen (2nd cent. a.d.), sensation was located in the brain, acting in conjunction with the nerves; but there is no evidence that such technical Greek knowledge is implied in the literature of apostolic Christianity.* [1] We are there concerned in general with an extension of Hebrew psychology, for which the brain was of no psychical importance. In fact, there is no Hebrew word for ‘brain,’ and we must suppose that it would simply be called, as it actually is in Syriac, the ‘marrow of the head.’ Certain (Aramaic) references to ‘the visions of the head’ in the Book of Daniel (Daniel 2:28 etc.) merely refer to the position of the organ of sight, and the phrase is actually contrasted with ‘the thoughts of the heart’ (Daniel 4:5; cf. Daniel 2:30).
The head (κεφαλή) is named as a representative part of the whole personality in St. Paul’s words to blaspheming Jews at Corinth: ‘Your blood be upon your own heads’ (Acts 18:6; cf. Joshua 2:19, 2 Samuel 1:16, etc.), and in the proverb that kindness to an enemy heaps coals of fire on his head (Romans 12:20; cf. Proverbs 25:22). The mourning custom of casting dust on the head (Revelation 18:19; cf. Ezekiel 27:30) may spring from the desire to link the dead with the living, if the dust was originally taken from the grave itself, as W. R. Smith and Schwally have supposed. (As to cutting off the hair of the head, because of a vow, see article Hair.) St. Paul argues against the Corinthian practice of allowing women publicly to pray or prophesy with unveiled heads, on three grounds (1 Corinthians 11:3 f.): (1) there is an upward gradation of rank to be observed-woman, man, Christ, God; (2) woman was created from and for man, and so she must show by her covered head that she is in the presence of her superior-man (cf. the covering of the bride in presence of her future husband, Genesis 24:65);† [2] (3) the long hair of woman shows that the covering of the veil is natural to her. If she unveils her head, therefore, she dishonours it by making a false claim for the personality it represents, as well as by outraging decency, which should be the more carefully observed because of the presence of the angels in public worship. (No satisfactory explanation of the phrase ‘authority [3] on her head’ [4] seems yet to have been given, but the context seems to imply that the veil expresses the authority of man over woman, in accordance with which the Revised Version inserts the words ‘a sign of’ before ‘authority.’ See article Authority.) It should be noted that it is the whole head, and not simply the face, that is covered in the East: ‘The women of Egypt deem it more incumbent upon them to cover the upper and back part of the head than the face, and more requisite to conceal the face than most other parts of the person’ (Lane, Modern Egyptians, 1895, p. 67).
The Custom of anointing the head is mentioned (figuratively) in I Clem. lvi. 5; Ign. Eph. xvii. 1; It is crowned in token of honour (Revelation 4:4; Revelation 9:7; Revelation 12:1; Revelation 19:12; cf. Revelation 10:1). The frequent references in the Odes of Solomon to a crown on the Christian’s head are best explained from the Eastern practice of placing a garland on the head of candidates for baptism (i. 1, ix. 8, xx. 7, 8, and J. H. Bernard’s notes in Texts and Studies viii. 3 [5] ad locc.). The seven heads of the Apocalyptic red dragon (i.e. Satan [6]) apparently denote the abundance of his power; the seven heads of his agent, the Beast 13:1; 17:9), are explicitly referred both to the seven hills of Rome and to seven Emperors. The head smitten to death, but healed (13:3), appears to be Nero, who was widely believed not to have died in a.d. 68 (see Swete, ad loc.). The lion-heads and snake-headed tails of Revelation 9:17; Revelation 9:19 merely heighten the horror of the scene.
The most remarkable use of the term ‘head’ in apostolic literature is its application to Christ, the ‘body’ being the Church. This analogy is more than illustration; it forms an argument, like the psychological analogies of Augustine in regard to the Trinity. Just as the lower level of primitive thought represented by symbolic magic often finds a real connexion in acts, because they are similar, so ancient theology (cf. the ‘Recapitulation’ doctrine of Irenaeus) often finds positive argument in mere parallelism. In the Pauline use of the analogy between the human body and the Church, Christ is sometimes identified with the whole body, and sometimes with the head alone; this will occasion no difficulty to those who remember St. Paul’s doctrine of the believer’s mystical union with Christ, so that his life is Christ’s. In the most detailed application of the analogy (1 Corinthians 12:12 f; cf. Romans 12:4-5), the head is simply contrasted with the feet, without special reference to Christ, the whole Church-body being identified with Him. NT commentators,* [7] whilst often crediting St. Paul with the knowledge of modern physiology, usually overlook the contribution of Hebrew psychology to the elucidation of this analogy. In the OT the body is regarded as a co-operative group of quasi-independent sense-organs, each possessed of psychical and ethical, as well as physical, life (see articles Eye, Ear, Hand, and cf. Matthew 5:29-30). This gives new point to the comparison with the quasi-independent life of the members of the Church; in the social as in the individual body, health depends on the (voluntary) subordination of this quasi-independence to the common good. This unity of purpose St. Paul elsewhere traces to the Headship of Christ. The Apostle can identify the head with Christ, without at all thinking of the brain, because the head is the most dignified part of the psychophysical personality. As a centre of life (cf. Matthew 5:36), not specially of thought or volition (which St. Paul located in the heart), the head dominates the body, the separate organs of which each contribute to the whole personality ‘according to the working in due measure of each several part’ (Ephesians 4:16; cf. Colossians 2:19). Christ is ‘the saviour of the body’ (Ephesians 5:23), as it is the head on which the safety of the whole body defends, because of the special sense-organs located in it. On the other hand, the body is necessary to the completion and fullness of the life of the head, as is the Church to Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23). Elsewhere, this Headship of Christ over the body denotes simply His priority of rank (Colossians 1:18), and this is extended to His dominion over the ‘principalities and powers’ of the unseen world (Colossians 2:10).
The bodily union of the members with Christ the Head is conceived in close relation with the initial act of baptism: ‘in one Spirit were we all baptized into one body’ (1 Corinthians 12:13). St. Paul’s doctrine of the Spirit of God (or of Christ) as creating the spiritual unity and efficiency of the body through which it circulates from the head has an interesting parallel in the Pneuma doctrine of contemporary physiology. According to this, ‘spirit’ was conveyed by the arteries to the different sense-organs (H. Siebeck, Gesch. der Psychologie, 1884, ii. p. 130f.; G. S. Brett, A History of Psychology, 1912, p. 286f.). Something of this popular doctrine may, of course, have reached St. Paul through the physician Luke. It would certainly have appealed to him as an example of ‘spiritual’ law in the ‘natural’ world, confirming and enforcing his own moral and spiritual conception of the Hebrew doctrine of the Spirit.* [8]
The Pauline analogy of ‘body’ and ‘Church’ is employed by Clement of Rome, though without explicit reference to the Headship of Christ, the head being named here simply as a higher member: ‘The head without the feet is nothing; so likewise the feet without the head are nothing: even the smallest limbs of our body are necessary and useful for the whole body: but all the members conspire and unite in subjection, that the whole body may be saved’ (1 Clem. xxxvii. 5). The same analogy re-appears in several of the Odes of Solomon. Thus Christ says, ‘I sowed my fruit in hearts, and transformed them into myself; and they received my blessing and lived; and they were gathered to me, and were saved; because they were to me as my own members, and I was their Head’ (17:13, 14; cf. xxii. 16). Similarly, Christ speaks of His descent into Hades, where He gathers His saints and delivers them: ‘the feet and the head he [9] let go, for they were not able to endure my face’ (xlii. 18). These passages continue the mystic realism of Pauline and Johannine thought, and throw an interesting light on the earlier ideas of the relation of the believer to Christ, even though they belong to the 2nd century.

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Head
Besides the common use of this as 'chief,' referring to the heads of families and heads of tribes, the word was used symbolically of government and power, as when God declared that the Seed of the woman should bruise the serpent's 'head.' Genesis 3:15 . In the N.T. the term κεφαλή is employed for the relative position of man in nature, and of Christ and of God: the head of the woman is the man; the head of every man is Christ; and the head of Christ is God. 1 Corinthians 11:3 . In another connection Christ is the head of the church, Ephesians 5:23 ; Colossians 1:18 ; and He is head over all things to the church. Ephesians 1:22 ; Colossians 2:10 . As head of the church Christ removes entirely every other controlling or guiding authority. As the head of a man guides and controls his body, so Christ has the complete control over His church.
In Revelation 12:3 the 'head' symbolises a form of power or kingdom; and in Revelation 17:3,9 , the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth, representing Rome, which was commonly described as built upon seven hills, and the woman signifies Papal Rome.

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Head
This word is used as a type of many and varies things in the Scriptures. Since it occurs so often, and in so many ways, it will not be possible to give all the Scripture references pertaining to it. The typical meanings most used are presented with a few Scriptures as examples.
Genesis 3:15 (b) This is a type of the utter defeat that shall be brought upon Satan by the Lord JESUS CHRIST.
Genesis 49:26 (a) This type is used to represent the superiority of this great man of GOD. He was to receive the best of GOD's blessings above his brethren, as in the dream the sheaves bowed down to his sheaf, and the stars made obeisance to him. (See Deuteronomy 33:16).
Exodus 29:10 (a) The figure in this case indicates that the entire animal is to be taken as an offering, as the head is the important and directing power of the body. (See Leviticus 4:4; Leviticus 8:14).
Deuteronomy 28:44 (b) By this figure we understand that the nations were to rule over Israel and the people of Israel were to be slaves to their neighbors.
Joshua 2:19 (b) The type in this passage is one that is quite often used throughout the Scriptures indicating that the whole person is to blame and is guilty in the sin that is committed. The head is taken as a type of the entire person, his body, soul and spirit. (See1Sa 25:39; 2 Samuel 1:16; 2 Chronicles 6:23).
2 Samuel 1:2 (c) The placing of earth upon the head was a sign of deep grief, sorrow, shame and humiliation. It was commonly practiced by the Israelites and by others. (See2Sa 15:32; Joshua 7:6).
2 Samuel 22:44 (2). This passage is evidently a type or picture of the crowning glory of the Lord JESUS. David often speaks in this manner about the Messiah. CHRIST is to be supreme, He is to be the sovereign over all the creation. The word is used often about the Saviour in His glory, grandeur and majestic power.
2 Kings 2:3 (c) The type is used in this place to describe the leadership of Elijah over Elisha. Elisha was subservient to Elijah. His life was directed by Elijah. Now the master of Elisha was to be taken away from him.
2 Kings 19:21 (b) Here we see a picture of the contempt with which Assyria was to be held by Israel. GOD compares Israel to a weak young woman, and her attitude as that of showing perfect disdain for the great nation and army of Assyria. (See also Isaiah 37:22).
2 Kings 25:27 (c) This is a beautiful way of saying that the imprisoned king was released from his confinement, and was given, just out of courtesy, a throne on which to sit in Babylon. No power accompanied this honor, it was only a mark of the king's favor.
Psalm 3:3 (c) By this figure David is expressing his belief in the GOD of Heaven, and his confidence that his GOD would restore him to his throne.
Psalm 22:7 (c) This action on the part of those who surrounded the Cross indicated their contempt of the Lord JESUS. It showed how they despised Him in their hearts.
Psalm 23:5 (b) David uses this type to show that GOD Himself had made CHRIST the Lord of Heaven and earth, a King and a Priest. It also indicates that David gave GOD the credit for making him the King of Israel.
Psalm 24:7 (b) This picture is taken from the records of wars. When the conqueror came back to the walled city the gate of the city was raised to admit the victor. So David is describing the return to glory of the Lord JESUS after His success at Calvary.
Psalm 44:14 (b) This action on the part of the nations among whom Israel is scattered indicates their contempt of the Jew. These unfortunate people throughout the world are the objects of derision, and this is indicated by the action mentioned.
Psalm 60:7 (c) This strange passage may mean that GOD's constant acts of forgiveness toward Ephraim, and the many times He restored the nation to a place of prominence prove the character of GOD, and magnified His righteous acts and judgments.
Psalm 68:21 (b) Here we see a type of the complete mastery that GOD would have over the enemies of Israel.
Psalm 110:7 (a) This type asserts without question that CHRIST JESUS will be on the throne of the world and will rule and reign without competition.
Proverbs 25:22 (a) There was a custom in Palestine which is referred to by this type. When the fire in one home went out, the friend would go to a neighbor carrying an earthen vessel on the head, and would borrow a few coals of fire with which to rekindle his own fire. If the neighbor was unusually kind, he would not give his unfortunate neighbor just a few coals, but would give him a good quantity. These would be carried back in the vessel on the head. The Lord takes advantage of this custom to remind us that when our neighbor is in an unfortunate position mentally or otherwise, we are to be unusually kind and liberal with him. Then he will find it difficult to hold a grudge against one who has been so helpful. (See Romans 12:20).
Song of Solomon 2:6 (c) A figure of the tender love of the Lord JESUS for His church. (See also Song of Solomon 8:3).
Song of Solomon 5:2 (c) This probably is a picture of the diligence and constancy of the Lord JESUS in serving His people, the Church, all day and night.
Song of Solomon 5:11 (c) The beautiful purity of CHRIST, as well as His supreme value, are represented in this picture. The same figure was used in regard to the image which Nebuchadnezzar saw and in which he was the head of gold. This indicated that his kingdom and his own personal self were to he the finest, the greatest, the most powerful of all kingdoms mentioned or represented by the image. So CHRIST JESUS and His kingdom, His Gospel, His business, and everything connected with Him is supreme purity, marvelous power and magnificence.
Song of Solomon 7:5 (c) Here CHRIST JESUS is represented as being the supreme authority and power, having the ascendancy over all others. Carmel is probably the greatest mountain ridge in Palestine. It was on this peak that Elijah and Elisha saw the mighty power of GOD, and the enemies of GOD saw the wrath of GOD, as well as His wonderful display of vengeance. CHRIST JESUS embodies all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. To Him has been given all judgment. Because of this He is likened to Mount Carmel.
Isaiah 1:5 (a) This is a type of the mind and the thoughts. The Lord is telling us that all the thoughts, plans and meditations of His people were evil, therefore their hearts or their feelings were evil as well.
Isaiah 59:17 (a) GOD has in a wonderful way made provision in CHRIST JESUS for projecting the thoughts which emanate from the mind. CHRIST is our salvation. As we put on CHRIST He turns our thoughts to heavenly things, and enables us to think GOD's thoughts after Him. (See Ephesians 6:17).
Daniel 2:38 (a) This is a type of Nebuchadnezzar and his kingdom, which was more excellent than any of the other world kingdoms that would follow.
Habakkuk 3:13 (a) By this figure the Lord is informing us that He will destroy the leaders of His enemies so that their kings and their captains will go down in utter defeat. It may also be taken as a prophecy of the destruction of Satan.
Matthew 21:42 (a) CHRIST is the chief of all Christians. He is the originator, the designer and the builder of His church. All the structure of GOD's church rests on JESUS CHRIST, His Word, His work, and His character. Any building outside of CHRIST is a structure on sinking sand. (See Mark 12:10; Luke 20:17; Acts 4:11; 1 Peter 2:7).
Matthew 27:39 (b) This action indicated the derision of the people against the Saviour. It showed that they held Him in contempt. (See Mark 15:29).
Luke 7:38 (a) This is a type of great humility for the hair of the woman is her glory. She took that which was most precious to her, that which marked her beauty and her sweetness, bowed her head at JESUS' feet, and wiped the tears with her hair. By this act she revealed her utter humiliation in His presence, and her trust in Him.
Luke 21:28 (b) This is a picture of victory, joy and anticipated blessing. It is a figure that represents courage, hope and expectancy.
John 13:9 (b) Evidently Peter wanted his thoughts, his works, and his walk to be, all of them, cleansed by our precious Lord. The feet represent the walk, the hands represent the work, and the head represents the will. Peter would have all of this in complete submission and subjection to His blessed Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:3-4 (a) The Lord JESUS is the sovereign Master of every Christian, and also of the Church. In the home, and a godly home is intended in this passage, the man is the authority in charge but not as a "boss," but rather as a leader and guide for the family. The Lord JESUS came as a servant of GOD, though He Himself was GOD and so He followed out all the will, plan, and purpose of GOD, His Father.
1 Corinthians 12:21 (a) Here we see a picture of Christian relationships. The leader of the church, or the pastor, cannot get along without the janitor, the organist, the usher, and all the other various members of the church.
Ephesians 1:22 (a) This figure represents the Lord JESUS as the reigning power in the church. His Word is supreme, His will is sovereign. Every other person who claims to be a lord over the church is a usurper, a traitor to CHRIST, and a curse to men. (See Ephesians 4:15; Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18; Colossians 2:10).
Colossians 2:19 (a) This is a true type of CHRIST JESUS, the founder, the leader, and the Lord of the church.
Revelation 1:14 (a) By this we learn of the age of our Lord JESUS who was "from the beginning," and who is the "Ancient of days." We learn from this that the Lord JESUS has eternal experience, good judgment, wonderful discretion, and therefore knows exactly what to do under every circumstance.
Revelation 9:7 (a) Here we see a type of the host of warriors led by men who have received their power from GOD to punish the inhabitants of the earth.
Revelation 13:1 (a) This hydra-headed monster represents the antichrist. The seven heads probably represent the seven hills of Rome from which there emanates the tremendous power of the great apostate church. It seems from this figure that the antichrist will emerge from the Roman power under the leadership of ten mighty men, and that by these the world will be brought into complete subjection with the exception of GOD's people who refuse to thus bow.
Revelation 17:9 (a) We are told quite plainly here the meaning of this type. The Roman power is situated on seven hills, and is already ruling with despotism and cruelty over many millions of helpless subjects.

A Dictionary of Early Christian Biography - Aetius, Arian Sect Founder And Head
Aetius ( Ἀέτιος ), the founder and head of the strictest sect of Arianism, upon whom, on account of the boldness of his reasonings on the nature of God, was affixed the surname of "the ungodly," ἄθεος (Soz. iii. 15). He was the first to carry out the doctrines of Arius to their legitimate issue, and in opposition both to Homoousians and Homoiousians maintained that the Son was unlike, ἀνόμοιος, the Father, from which his followers took the name of Anomoeans. They were also known as Eunomians, from his amanuensis Eunomius. the principal apologist of the party; and as Heterusiasts and Exukontians, as affirming that the Son was ἐξ ἑτέρας οὐσίας from the Father, and created ἐξ οὐκ ὄντων .
The events of his singularly vagrant and chequered career are related from very different points of view by the Eunomian Philostorgius, and the orthodox writers Socrates, Sozomen, Theodoret, and Gregory Nyssen. We must regard Aetius as a bold and unprincipled adventurer, endowed with an indomitable love of disputation, which led him into incessant arguments on the nature of the Godhead, the person of our Lord, and other transcendental subjects, not only with the orthodox but with the less pronounced Arians. He was born at Antioch. His father, dying insolvent, left Aetius, then a child, and his mother in extreme destitution (Philost. H. E. iii. 15; cf. Valesius's notes; Suidas, sub. voc. Ἀέτιος ). According to Gregory Nyssen, he became the slave of a woman named Ampelis; and having obtained his freedom in some disgraceful manner, became a travelling tinker, and afterwards a goldsmith. Having been convicted of substituting copper for gold in an ornament entrusted to him for repair, he gave up his trade, and attaching himself to an itinerant quack, picked up some knowledge of medicine. He met with a ready dupe in an Armenian, whose large fees placed Aetius above the reach of want. He now began to take rank as a regular and recognized practitioner at Antioch (Greg. Nys. adv. Eunom. lib. i. vol. ii. p.293). Philostorgius merely tells us that he devoted himself to the study of philosophy and dialectics, and became the pupil of Paulinus the Arian bishop, recently removed from Tyre to Antioch, c. 323 (Philost. iii. 15). Aetius attached himself to the Aristotelian form of philosophy, and with him, Milman remarks ( Hist. of Christianity , vol. ii. p.443) the strife between Aristotelianism and Platonism among theologians seems to have begun. His chief study was the Categories of Aristotle, the scope of which, according to Socrates (H.E. ii. 35), he entirely misconceived, drawing from them sophistical arguments repudiating the prevailing Platonic mode of argument used by Origen and Clemens Alex. On the death of Paulinus his protector, c. 324, he was banished to Anazarbus in Cilicia, where he gained his livelihood by his trade. Here his dialectic skill charmed a grammarian, who instructed him more fully, receiving repayment by his menial services. Aetius tried his polemic powers against his benefactor, whom he put to public shame by the confutation of his interpretation of Scripture. On the ignominious dismissal which naturally followed, Athanasius, the Arian bishop of the place, opened his doors to the outcast, and read the Gospels with him. Aetius also read St. Paul's Epistles at Tarsus with Antonius, who, like Athanasius, was a disciple of Lucian, Arius's master. On Antonius's elevation to the episcopate, Aetius returned to Antioch, where he studied the prophets, particularly Ezekiel, with Leontius, afterwards bishop of that see, also a pupil of Lucian. A storm of unpopularity soon drove him from Antioch to Cilicia; but having been defeated in argument by one of the Borborian Gnostics, he betook himself to Alexandria, where he soon recovered his character as an invincible adversary by vanquishing the Manichean leader Aphthonius. Aphthonius, according to Philostorgius ( H. E. iii. 15), only survived his defeat seven days. Here Aetius took up his former professions, studying medicine and working as a goldsmith.
On the return of St. Athanasius to Alexandria in 349, Aetius retired to Antioch, of which his former teacher Leontius was now bishop. By him Aetius was ordained deacon, c. 350 (Philost. iii. 17; Socr. H. E. ii. 35; Athan. de Synod. § 38, Ox. trans. p 137; Suidas, s.v. ). His ordination was protested against by Flavian and Diodorus, and he was inhibited from the exercise of his ministry (Theod. H. E. ii. 24). Epiphanius erroneously asserts that he was admitted to the diaconate by George of Cappadocia, the intruding bp. of Alexandria (Epiph. Haeres. lxxvi. 1). Aetius now developed more fully his Anomoean tenets, and he exerted all his influence to induce the Arian party to refuse communion with the orthodox. He also began to withdraw himself from the less pronounced Arians (Socr. H. E. ii. 359). This schism in the Arian party was still further developed at the first council of Sirmium, A.D. 351, where he attacked the respectable semi-Arian (Homoiousian) bishops, Basil of Ancyra and Eustathius of Sebaste (Philost. H. E. iii. 16), reducing them to silence. Exasperated by his discomfiture, Basil denounced Aetius to Gallus. His life was spared at the intercession of bp. Leontius; and being subsequently introduced to Gallus by Theophilus Blemmys, he was sent by him to his brother Julian to win him back from the paganism into which he was lapsing. Gallus also appointed him his religious teacher (Philost. H. E. iii. 27; Greg. Nys. u.s. p. 294).
The fall of Gallus in 354 caused a change in the fortunes of Aetius, who returned to Alexandria in 356 to support the waning cause of Arianism. The see of Athanasius was then occupied by George of Cappadocia, under whom Aetius served as a deacon, and when nominated to the episcopate by two Arian bishops, Serras and Secundus, he refused to be consecrated by them on the ground that they had held communion with the Homoousian party (Philost. iii. 19). Here he was joined by his renowned pupil and secretary Eunomius (Greg. Nys. u.s. p. 299; Socr. H. E. ii. 22; Philost. H. E. iii. 20). Greater troubles were now at hand for Aetius. Basil of Ancyra denounced him to the civil power for his supposed complicity in the treasonable designs of Gallus, and he was banished to Pepuza in Phrygia. The influence of Ursacius and Valens procured his recall; but he was soon driven again into exile. The hard irreverence of Aetius, and the determination with which he pushed conclusions from the principles of Arius, shocked the more religious among the Arian party, and forced the bishops to use all measures to crush him. His doctrines were also becoming alarmingly prevalent. "Nearly the whole of Antioch had suffered from the shipwreck of Aetius, and there was danger lest the whole (once more) should be submerged" (Letter of George, bp. of Laodicea, ap. Soz. H. E. vi. 13). A synod was therefore appointed for Nicomedia in Bithynia. A violent earthquake and the intrigues of the court brought about its division into two synods. The West met at Ariminum; the East at Seleucia in Isauria, A.D. 359. The latter separated without any definite conclusion. "The Arians, semi-Arians, and Anomoeans, mingled in tumultuous strife, and hurled anathemas at one another" (Milman, Hist. Christ. iii. c. 8). Whatever triumph was gained rested with the opponents of the Aetians, who appealed to the emperor and the court, and a second general council was summoned to meet at Constantinople (Athan. de Synod. § 10, 12). Of this council Acacius was the leading spirit, but a split occurred among the Anomoean followers of Aetius. The party triumphed, but its founder was sent into banishment, first to Mopsuestia, then to Amblada in Pisidia. Here he gained the goodwill of the savage inhabitants by his prayers having, as they supposed, averted a pestilence (Theod. ii. 23; Soz. iv. 23, 24; Philost. iv. 12; Greg. Nys. u.s. p. 301).
The death of Constantius, A.D. 361, put an end to Aetius's exile. Julian recalled all the banished bishops, and invited Aetius to his court (Ep. Juliana, 31, p. 52, ed. Boisson; Soz. v. 5), and at the instance of Eudoxius (Philost. ix. 4) presented him with an estate in the island of Lesbos. The ecclesiastical censure was taken off Aetius by Euzoius, the Arian bp. of Antioch (ib. vii. 5), who, with the bishop of his party, compiled a defence of his doctrines ( ib. viii. 2). According to Epiphanius ( Haer. u.s. ), he was consecrated bishop at Constantinople, though not to any particular see; and he and Eunomius consecrated bishops for his own party (Philost. viii. 2). On the death of Jovian, A.D. 364, Valens shewed special favour to Eudoxius, between whom and Aetius and Eunomius a schism had arisen. Aetius in disgust retired to his farm in Lesbos (ib. ix.4). The revolt of Procopius once more endangered his life. He was accused to the governor, whom Procopius had placed in the island, of favouring the cause of Valens, A.D. 365–366 ( ib. ix. 6). Aetius returned to Constantinople. He was the author of several letters to Constantius and others, filled with subtle disquisition on the nature of the Deity (Socr. ii. 35), and of 300 heretical propositions, of which Epiphanius has preserved 47 (Haer. lxxvi. § 10), with a refutation of each.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Head
It would have been unnecessary to have noticed this article in the general acceptation of the word, since every one cannot but know, that as the head of the body, in every thing that liveth, is the prime mover of the body; and, indeed, is sometimes put for the whole of the body, so is it in common conversation considered as the first and pre-disposing cause of all life and action, whether considered individually, or in a community at large. But the term Head when applied to the Lord Jesus Christ, as the Head of his body the "church," opens so sweet a subject for contemplation, that in a work of this kind it would be unpardonable to pass it by. Indeed, the subject even looks farther than this, and directs the mind of the truly regenerated believer to behold JEHOVAH, in his threefold character of person, as being the Head of Christ, considered in his mediatorial office, and giving truth to all the glorious purposes of salvation in him. It was the Lord JEHOVAH, in the great scheme of redemption, before the earth was formed, that set up Christ as the Head of his church. All the persons of the GODHEAD engaged in this plan of grace, and set the wheels agoing from all eternity; and hence God the Father is called the God and Father"of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family, in heaven and earth, is named." (Ephesians 3:14-15) And as to God the Father is peculiarly ascribed the calling, of Christ, as the Head of his body the church, (Isaiah 42:6) so to God the Holy Ghost is peculiarly ascribed no less the anointing of Christ to the special office of Mediator. (Isaiah 48:16-17) And hence, in conformity to this order of things, the apostle tells the church, when speaking of this subject, "I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God." (1 Corinthians 11:3)
Next, in the order of things, we may view the Headship of Christ to his church, and a most blessed and interesting subject it becomes to our view. The Scriptures are full of this most delightful truth. Jesus, as Mediator, is the Head the Surety, the husband, the all in all, of his people. He is the source of life, of light, of salvation, of grace here, and glory forever. So that in this view of the Lord Jesus, and the church in him, it is incalculable in how many ways, and by what a variety of communications, this Headship of Christ becomes a source of continual joy and comfort to all his redeemed. They have an unceasing, communion with him whether they are conscious of it or not; and it should be among the highest felicities of the soul to go every day, and all the day, in the perpetual actings of faith upon the glorious person of the Lord Jesus, as the Head of his body the church, "the fulness of him that filleth all in all." (Ephesians 1:22-23)
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Head
A. Nouns.
Rô'sh (רֹאשׁ, Strong's #7218), “head; top; first; sum.” Cognates of rô'sh appear in Ugaritic, Akkadian, Phoenician, biblical Aramaic, Arabic, and Ethiopic. Rô'sh and its alternate form re'sh appear about 596 times in biblical Hebrew.
This word often represents a “head,” a bodily part (Gen. 40:20). Rô'sh is also used of a decapitated “head” (2 Sam. 4:8), an animal “head” (Gen. 3:15), and a statue “head” (Dan. 2:32). In Dan. 7:9, where God is pictured in human form, His “head” is crowned with hair like pure wool (i.e., white).
To “lift up one’s own head” may be a sign of declaring one’s innocence: “If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction” (Job 10:15). This same figure of speech may indicate an intention to begin a war, the most violent form of selfassertion: “For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head” (Ps. 83:2). With a negation, this phrase may symbolize submission to another power: “Thus was Midian subdued before the children of Israel, so that they lifted up their heads no more” (Judg. 8:28). Used transitively (i.e., to lift up someone else’s “head”), this word may connote restoring someone to a previous position: “Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and restore thee unto thy place …” (Gen. 40:13). It can also denote the release of someone from prison: “… Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison” (2 Kings 25:27).
With the verb rum (“to raise”), rô'sh can signify the victory and power of an enthroned king—God will “lift up [1] head,” or exert His rule (Ps. 110:7). When God lifts up (rum) one’s “head,” He fills one with hope and confidence: “But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head” (Ps. 3:3).
There are many secondary nuances of rô'sh. First, the word can represent the “hair on one’s head”: “And on the seventh day, he shall shave all his hair off his rô'sh; he shall shave off his beard and his eyebrows, all his hair” (Lev. 14:9, RSV). The word can connote unity, representing every individual in a given group: “Have they not sped? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two …” (Judg. 5:30). This word may be used numerically, meaning the total number of persons or individuals in a group: “Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls” (Num. 1:2) Rô'sh can also emphasize the individual: “And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head [2] was sold for fourscore pieces of silver …” (2 Kings 6:25). It is upon the “head” (upon the person himself) that curses and blessings fall: “The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors … : they shall be on the head of Joseph …” (Gen. 49:26).
Rô'sh sometimes means “leader,” whether appointed, elected, or self-appointed. The word can be used of the tribal fathers, who are the leaders of a group of people: “And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people …” (Exod. 18:25). Military leaders are also called “heads”: “These be the names of the mighty men whom David had: The Tachmonite that sat in the seat, chief among the captains …” (2 Sam. 23:8). In Num. 1:16, the princes are called “heads” (cf. Judg. 10:18). This word is used of those who represent or lead the people in worship (2 Kings 25:18—the chief priest).
When used of things, rô'sh means “point” or “beginning.” With a local emphasis, the word refers to the “top” or summit of a mountain or hill: “… Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand” (Exod. 17:9). Elsewhere the word represents the topmost end of a natural or constructed object: “Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven …” (Gen. 11:4).
In Gen. 47:31, the word denotes the “head” of a bed, or where one lays his “head.” In 1 Kings 8:8, rô'sh refers to the ends of poles. The word may be used of the place where a journey begins: “Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way …” (Ezek. 16:25); cf. Dan. 7:1: “the sum of the matters.…” This sense of the place of beginning appears in Gen. 2:10 (the first occurrence): “And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became [2].” This nuance identifies a thing as being placed spatially in front of a group; it stands in front or at the “head” (Deut. 20:9; cf. 1 Kings 21:9). The “head” of the stars is a star located at the zenith of the sky (Job 22:12). The “head” cornerstone occupies a place of primary importance. It is the stone by which all the other stones are measured; it is the chief cornerstone (Ps. 118:22). This word may have a temporal significance meaning “beginning” or “first.” The second sense is seen in Exod. 12:2: “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months.…” In 1 Chron. 16:7 the word describes the “first” in a whole series of acts: “Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the Lord into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.”
Rô'sh may also have an estimative connotation: “Take thou also unto thee [4] spices …” (Exod. 30:23).
Rê'shı̂yth (רֵאשִׁית, Strong's #7225), “beginning; first; choicest.” The abstract word rê'shı̂yth corresponds to the temporal and estimative sense of ro’sh. Rê'shı̂yth connotes the “beginning” of a fixed period of time: “… The eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year” (Deut. 11:12). The “beginning” of one’s period of life is intended in Job 42:12: “So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning.…” This word can represent a point of departure, as it does in Gen. 1:1 (the first occurrence): “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Estimatively, this word can mean the “first” or “choicest”: “The first of the first fruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the Lord thy God” (Exod. 23:19). This nuance of rê'shı̂yth may appear in the comparative sense, meaning “choicest” or “best.” Dan. 11:41 exhibits the nuance of “some”: “… But these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief [5] of the children of Ammon” (Dan. 11:41).
Used substantively, the word can mean “first fruits”: “As for the oblation of the first fruits, ye shall offer them unto the Lord: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savor” (Lev. 2:12). “… The first fruits of them which they shall offer unto the Lord, them have I given thee” (Num. 18:12). Sometimes this word represents the “first part” of an offering: “Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for a heave offering …” (Num. 15:20).
B. Adjective.
Ri'shôn (רִאשֹׁן, Strong's #7223), “first; foremost; preceding; former.” This word occurs about 182 times in biblical Hebrew. It denotes the “first” in a temporal sequence: “And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month …” (Gen. 8:13). In Ezra 9:2, ri'shôn is used both of precedence in time and of leadership: “… The holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.”
A second meaning of this adjective is “preceding” or “former”: “… Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first …” (Gen. 13:4). Gen. 33:2 uses this word locally: “And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.” The “former ones” are “ancestors”: “But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen …” (Lev. 26:45). But in most cases, this adjective has a temporal emphasis.
A Dictionary of Early Christian Biography - Didymus, Head of the Catechetical School
Didymus , head of the Catechetical School of Alexandria in the 4th cent., born a.d. 309 or 314 (Tillemont, Mém. x. 387). When only four years old he lost his sight from disease; and consequently was never taught, as he himself declared, even the usual rudiments of learning. But his extraordinary force of character and intense thirst for knowledge triumphed over all disadvantages. He prayed for inward light, "but added studies to prayers" (Rufin. ii. 7). He learned the alphabet by touch from engraved wooden tablets, and words and syllables by attentive listening. Thus he became master of various sciences (Socr. iv. 25; Soz. iii. 15; Theod. iv. 26), and attained a truly wonderful familiarity with the Scriptures. Athanasius made the blind scholar head of the Catechetical School, as a fitting successor to Pantaenus and Clement. He was the twelfth who occupied that chair. In his earlier manhood, Anthony, visiting Alexandria to support the Catholic cause against the Arians, entered Didymus's cell, and despite his modest reluctance obliged him to offer up prayers (Rosweyd. Vit. Patr. 944, 539, ed. 1617), and asked Didymus whether he was sad on account of his blindness. After the question had been twice repeated, Didymus owned that he did feel the affliction painfully. "Do not be distressed," rejoined the saintly hermit, "for the loss of a faculty enjoyed by gnats and flies, when you have that inward eyesight which is the privilege of none but saints." Jerome ( Ep. 68; cf. Socr. iv. 29) stayed for a month at Alexandria in 386, mainly (see Prolog. in Eph. ) to see Didymus and have Scripture difficulties explained by him (Soz. l.c. ). "In many points," wrote Jerome in a.d. 400 (Ep. 84), "I give him thanks. I learned from him things which I had not known; what I did know, his teaching has helped me to retain." Rufinus was also, for a much longer time, a pupil of Didymus. Palladius (Rosweyd. l.c. ), who visited him four times, states that he had a dream of the emperor Julian's death at the exact time it occurred in his Persian expedition. Sozomen says that in arguing for the Nicene faith, Didymus was successful by his extreme persuasiveness—he seemed to make every one a judge of the points in dispute (iii. 15); and Isidore of Pelusium (Ep. i. 331) and Libanius ( Ep. 321) speak of his great ability.
Our fullest information about him is derived from Jerome, who frequently refers to him as his old teacher, and affectionately describes him as "my seer," in allusion to the contrast between his physical blindness and his keenness of spiritual and intellectual perception. Jerome translated into Latin Didymus's treatise On the Holy Spirit , and prefixed a preface, in which he spoke of the author as having "eyes like the spouse in the Song of Songs," as "unskilled in speech but not in knowledge, exhibiting in his very speech the character of an apostolic man, as well by luminous thought as by simplicity of words." Writing in 392 (de Viris Illustr. 109), Jerome gives a short biographical account of Didymus.
The extent to which Didymus may be called an Origenizer has been discussed. See Mingarelli's "Commentarius" prefixed to his edition of Didymus's de Trinitate (Bologna, 1769). In his extant writings there is no assertion of Origenian views as to the pre-existence of souls, and he affirms, more than once, the endless nature of future punishment; but seems to have believed that some of the fallen angels occupied a midway position between angels and demons, and would be ultimately forgiven. Neither Epiphanius nor Theophilus, nor indeed any one before the 6th cent. except Jerome, laid Origenism to his charge; and with regard to the alleged condemnation of his memory by the 5th general council, as he is never named in the Acts, the utmost that can be made of such a statement is, that the condemnation of Origen in that synod's 11th anathema (Mansi, ix. 383) was somewhat largely construed as carrying with it, by implication, the condemnation of other writers more or less identified with his school of thought. See Tillemont's "comparison of Didymus with St. Gregory of Nyssa" (x. 396). Didymus's work On the Holy Spirit was clearly a protest against Macedonianism (see Tillemont, x. 393).
His comments on the Catholic Epistles are extant as translated by Epiphanius Scholasticus (see Galland. Bib. Vet. Patr. ii.). His notes on I. Peter shew a dislike of Chiliasm as a carnal and frivolous theory; he asserts free will opposes Manicheans admits the possibility of faults on the part of angels being cleansed through Christ; and in words very characteristic of the indomitable student and teacher rebukes Christians who neglect sacred studies and attend only to practical life (on 1Pe_3:15). He comments briefly on II. Peter but sets it aside as spurious and "not in the canon," although (see infra) in the de Trinitate he cites it as Petrine. The chief features of his remarks on St. John's three Epistles are (1) the earnestness against Docetism Valentinianism all speculations injurious to the Maker of the world (2) the assertion that a true knowledge of God is possible without a knowledge of His essence (3) care to urge the necessity of combining orthodoxy with right action. In the notes on Jude he says that Christ is called the only Sovereign because He is the only true God. He speaks of the doom of those who turn away absolutely to evil as hopeless.
His treatise Against the Manicheans (pub. by Combefis in his Auctarium Novum , 1672) begins with logical formulae, intended to disprove the existence of two unoriginated Principles. From the blame and punishment attached to evil, he infers that Satan and his followers are not evil by nature; he discusses the terms "by nature children of wrath" (which he understands to mean "really children of wrath"), "children of this world," "son of perdition," "generation of vipers," with the aim of shewing that they do not contravene the great moral facts of free will and responsibility. The devil, he urges, was created good, and became a devil by his own free will. If it be objected, why then did God make a being who was to become so pestilent? the objection really lies against the whole plan of God's moral government, which intends His rational creatures to become good by choosing goodness, and therefore leaves them capable of choosing evil, and drawing on themselves the result of such a choice. He also asserts the transmission of original sin: a Saviour born by ordinary generation would have incurred the sin entailed on Adam's whole posterity. His three books On the Trinity have not reached us in a perfect state. They are interesting as exhibiting the Athanasian character, so to speak, of his thought in presence of Anomoeans and of Macedonians. He admits II. Peter as genuine: perhaps the opinion he had formerly held as to its non-canonicity had been reconsidered. He is very earnest, almost in the style of the "Athanasian Creed," on the co-equality of the Divine Hypostases (he uses that term in the sense which the younger generation of Catholics had adopted since the earlier days of the Arian strife). He enforces the perpetuity of Christ's kingdom (as if in controversy with Marcellians), and speaks of the Virgin Mother as Theotokos (ii. 4). He bestows much time and pains on the Macedonian controversy. Occasionally he kindles and glows with strong devotional fervour, and concludes an eloquent passage on the glory of the Holy Trinity with a thrice-repeated Amen. Shortly before this passage he invokes the archangels, and expresses his belief in the intercession of the saints (ii. 7).

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Head
This word has several significations, beside its natural one, which denotes the head of a man. It is sometimes used in Scripture for the whole man: "Blessings are upon the head of the just," Proverbs 10:6 .; that is, upon their persons. God says of the wicked, "I will recompense their way upon their head," Ezekiel 9:10 . It signifies a chief or capital city: "The head of Syria is Damascus," Isaiah 7:8 . It denotes a chief or principal member in society: "The Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail. The ancient and honourable, he is the head," Isaiah 9:14-15 . "The seed of the woman shall bruise the head of the serpent," Genesis 3:15 ; that is, Christ Jesus, the blessed seed of the woman, shall overthrow the power, policy, and works of the devil. The river in paradise was divided into four heads or branches. In times of grief, the mourners covered their heads: they cut and plucked off their hair. Amos, speaking of unhappy times, says, "I will bring baldness upon every head," Amos 8:10 . In prosperity, they anointed their heads with sweet oils: "Let thy head lack no" perfumed "ointment," Ecclesiastes 9:8 . To shake the head at any one, expresses contempt: "The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee," Isaiah 37:22 .
Head is taken for one that hath rule and preeminence over others. Thus God is the head of Christ; as Mediator, from him he derives all his dignity and authority. Christ is the only spiritual head of the church, both in respect of eminence and influence; he communicates life, motion, and strength to every believer. Also the husband is the head of his wife, because by God's ordinance he is to rule over her, Genesis 3:16 ; also in regard to pre- eminence of sex, 1 Peter 3:7 , and excellency of knowledge, 1 Corinthians 14:35 . The Apostle mentions this subordination of persons in 1 Corinthians 11:3 : "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God." "The stone which the builders rejected was made the head of the corner," Psalms 118:22 . It was the first in the angle, whether it were disposed at the top of that angle to adorn and crown it, or at the bottom to support it. This, in the New Testament is applied to Christ, who is the strength and beauty of the church, to unite the several parts of it, namely, both Jews and Gentiles together.

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Head-Dress
The Hebrews do not appear to have regarded a covering for the head as an essential article of dress. Hats were unknown. The earliest notice we have of such a thing is in connection with the sacerdotal vestments. (Exodus 28:40 ) The tsaniph (something like a turban) is noticed as being worn by nobles, ( Job 29:14 ) ladies, (Isaiah 3:23 ) and kings, (Isaiah 62:3 ) while the peer was an article of holiday dress, ( Isaiah 61:3 ) Authorized Version "beauty;" (Ezekiel 24:17,23 ) and was worn at weddings. (Isaiah 61:10 ) The ordinary head-dress of the Bedouin consists of the keffieh , a square handkerchief, generally of red and yellow cotton or cotton and silk, folded so that three of the corners hang down over the back and shoulders, leaving the face exposed, and bound round the head by a cord. It is not improbable that a similar covering was used by the Hebrews on certain occasions. The Assyrian head-dress is described in ( Ezekiel 23:15 ) under the terms "exceeding in dyed attire." The word rendered "hats" in (Daniel 3:21 ) properly applies to a cloak.

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Head
In most languages and cultures, a characteristic of everyday speech is to use the names of parts of the body (eyes, head, hands, feet, etc.) figuratively as well as literally. People in Bible times, for example, often referred to the head in a figurative sense. This was because they considered the head to be in some way representative of the whole person (1 Kings 2:32; Acts 18:6).
People in Bible times might therefore show their shame or grief by covering the head, throwing dust on the head, or shaving the head (2 Samuel 15:30; Isaiah 15:2; Jeremiah 14:3; Revelation 18:19). By contrast people were honoured by the anointing or crowning of the head (Psalms 23:5; Proverbs 4:9; Mark 14:3; Hebrews 2:9). Lifting up the head symbolized victory (Psalms 3:3; Psalms 27:6; Psalms 110:7); hanging the head symbolized shame or grief (Lamentations 2:10; Luke 18:13).
When used figuratively of people or nations, ‘head’ could indicate leadership or authority (Deuteronomy 28:13; Judges 11:9; 1 Samuel 15:17). The rulers of Israel were called the heads of Israel (Micah 3:1).
By New Testament times the figurative usage of ‘head’ was largely concerned with its being the source of life and the seat of authority. This is clearly seen in Christ’s headship of the church. As the head is both the source and controller of the body’s life, so Christ is the source of the church’s life and has supreme authority over it (Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 4:15-16; Colossians 1:18; Colossians 2:10; Colossians 2:19).
Another form of headship is found in the marriage relationship. The husband’s headship of the wife results from the different responsibilities given to each as created by God. For the Christian husband and wife, this relationship should be patterned on Christ’s self-sacrificing love for the church and the church’s obedient love for Christ (Ephesians 5:23-25). Although the husband’s headship means that he has a certain authority, it does not mean that he is superior. There is an equality in status, though a difference in function. The husband is head of the wife in the same way as God the Father is head of God the Son. Yet the Son, though under the Father’s authority, is equal with him (1 Corinthians 11:3; cf. John 5:19; John 8:28-29; John 10:30; John 14:9-10; see HUSBAND; WIFE).
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Head
The importance attributed to the head in ancient psychology must not be supposed to spring from scientific knowledge of the function of the brain and nervous system. ‘The psychical importance of the head would be an early result of observation of the phenomena and source of the senses of sight, hearing, taste, and smell, and of such facts as the pulsation of the fontanel in infants and the fatal effect of wounds in this complex centre of the organism’ (A. E. Crawley, The Idea of the Soul, 1909, p. 239). Plato assigned reason to the brain, ‘the topographically higher region being Correlated with the reason’s higher worth’ (Aristotle, Psychology, translation W. A. Hammond, 1902, Introd. p. xxvi); but, to Aristotle, ‘the brain is merely a regulator for the temperature of the heart’ (ib. p. xxiv). By the time of Galen (2nd cent. a.d.), sensation was located in the brain, acting in conjunction with the nerves; but there is no evidence that such technical Greek knowledge is implied in the literature of apostolic Christianity.* [1] We are there concerned in general with an extension of Hebrew psychology, for which the brain was of no psychical importance. In fact, there is no Hebrew word for ‘brain,’ and we must suppose that it would simply be called, as it actually is in Syriac, the ‘marrow of the head.’ Certain (Aramaic) references to ‘the visions of the head’ in the Book of Daniel (Daniel 2:28 etc.) merely refer to the position of the organ of sight, and the phrase is actually contrasted with ‘the thoughts of the heart’ (Daniel 4:5; cf. Daniel 2:30).
The head (κεφαλή) is named as a representative part of the whole personality in St. Paul’s words to blaspheming Jews at Corinth: ‘Your blood be upon your own heads’ (Acts 18:6; cf. Joshua 2:19, 2 Samuel 1:16, etc.), and in the proverb that kindness to an enemy heaps coals of fire on his head (Romans 12:20; cf. Proverbs 25:22). The mourning custom of casting dust on the head (Revelation 18:19; cf. Ezekiel 27:30) may spring from the desire to link the dead with the living, if the dust was originally taken from the grave itself, as W. R. Smith and Schwally have supposed. (As to cutting off the hair of the head, because of a vow, see article Hair.) St. Paul argues against the Corinthian practice of allowing women publicly to pray or prophesy with unveiled heads, on three grounds (1 Corinthians 11:3 f.): (1) there is an upward gradation of rank to be observed-woman, man, Christ, God; (2) woman was created from and for man, and so she must show by her covered head that she is in the presence of her superior-man (cf. the covering of the bride in presence of her future husband, Genesis 24:65);† [2] (3) the long hair of woman shows that the covering of the veil is natural to her. If she unveils her head, therefore, she dishonours it by making a false claim for the personality it represents, as well as by outraging decency, which should be the more carefully observed because of the presence of the angels in public worship. (No satisfactory explanation of the phrase ‘authority [3] on her head’ [4] seems yet to have been given, but the context seems to imply that the veil expresses the authority of man over woman, in accordance with which the Revised Version inserts the words ‘a sign of’ before ‘authority.’ See article Authority.) It should be noted that it is the whole head, and not simply the face, that is covered in the East: ‘The women of Egypt deem it more incumbent upon them to cover the upper and back part of the head than the face, and more requisite to conceal the face than most other parts of the person’ (Lane, Modern Egyptians, 1895, p. 67).
The Custom of anointing the head is mentioned (figuratively) in I Clem. lvi. 5; Ign. Eph. xvii. 1; It is crowned in token of honour (Revelation 4:4; Revelation 9:7; Revelation 12:1; Revelation 19:12; cf. Revelation 10:1). The frequent references in the Odes of Solomon to a crown on the Christian’s head are best explained from the Eastern practice of placing a garland on the head of candidates for baptism (i. 1, ix. 8, xx. 7, 8, and J. H. Bernard’s notes in Texts and Studies viii. 3 [5] ad locc.). The seven heads of the Apocalyptic red dragon (i.e. Satan [6]) apparently denote the abundance of his power; the seven heads of his agent, the Beast 13:1; 17:9), are explicitly referred both to the seven hills of Rome and to seven Emperors. The head smitten to death, but healed (13:3), appears to be Nero, who was widely believed not to have died in a.d. 68 (see Swete, ad loc.). The lion-heads and snake-headed tails of Revelation 9:17; Revelation 9:19 merely heighten the horror of the scene.
The most remarkable use of the term ‘head’ in apostolic literature is its application to Christ, the ‘body’ being the Church. This analogy is more than illustration; it forms an argument, like the psychological analogies of Augustine in regard to the Trinity. Just as the lower level of primitive thought represented by symbolic magic often finds a real connexion in acts, because they are similar, so ancient theology (cf. the ‘Recapitulation’ doctrine of Irenaeus) often finds positive argument in mere parallelism. In the Pauline use of the analogy between the human body and the Church, Christ is sometimes identified with the whole body, and sometimes with the head alone; this will occasion no difficulty to those who remember St. Paul’s doctrine of the believer’s mystical union with Christ, so that his life is Christ’s. In the most detailed application of the analogy (1 Corinthians 12:12 f; cf. Romans 12:4-5), the head is simply contrasted with the feet, without special reference to Christ, the whole Church-body being identified with Him. NT commentators,* [7] whilst often crediting St. Paul with the knowledge of modern physiology, usually overlook the contribution of Hebrew psychology to the elucidation of this analogy. In the OT the body is regarded as a co-operative group of quasi-independent sense-organs, each possessed of psychical and ethical, as well as physical, life (see articles Eye, Ear, Hand, and cf. Matthew 5:29-30). This gives new point to the comparison with the quasi-independent life of the members of the Church; in the social as in the individual body, health depends on the (voluntary) subordination of this quasi-independence to the common good. This unity of purpose St. Paul elsewhere traces to the Headship of Christ. The Apostle can identify the head with Christ, without at all thinking of the brain, because the head is the most dignified part of the psychophysical personality. As a centre of life (cf. Matthew 5:36), not specially of thought or volition (which St. Paul located in the heart), the head dominates the body, the separate organs of which each contribute to the whole personality ‘according to the working in due measure of each several part’ (Ephesians 4:16; cf. Colossians 2:19). Christ is ‘the saviour of the body’ (Ephesians 5:23), as it is the head on which the safety of the whole body defends, because of the special sense-organs located in it. On the other hand, the body is necessary to the completion and fullness of the life of the head, as is the Church to Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23). Elsewhere, this Headship of Christ over the body denotes simply His priority of rank (Colossians 1:18), and this is extended to His dominion over the ‘principalities and powers’ of the unseen world (Colossians 2:10).
The bodily union of the members with Christ the Head is conceived in close relation with the initial act of baptism: ‘in one Spirit were we all baptized into one body’ (1 Corinthians 12:13). St. Paul’s doctrine of the Spirit of God (or of Christ) as creating the spiritual unity and efficiency of the body through which it circulates from the head has an interesting parallel in the Pneuma doctrine of contemporary physiology. According to this, ‘spirit’ was conveyed by the arteries to the different sense-organs (H. Siebeck, Gesch. der Psychologie, 1884, ii. p. 130f.; G. S. Brett, A History of Psychology, 1912, p. 286f.). Something of this popular doctrine may, of course, have reached St. Paul through the physician Luke. It would certainly have appealed to him as an example of ‘spiritual’ law in the ‘natural’ world, confirming and enforcing his own moral and spiritual conception of the Hebrew doctrine of the Spirit.* [8]
The Pauline analogy of ‘body’ and ‘Church’ is employed by Clement of Rome, though without explicit reference to the Headship of Christ, the head being named here simply as a higher member: ‘The head without the feet is nothing; so likewise the feet without the head are nothing: even the smallest limbs of our body are necessary and useful for the whole body: but all the members conspire and unite in subjection, that the whole body may be saved’ (1 Clem. xxxvii. 5). The same analogy re-appears in several of the Odes of Solomon. Thus Christ says, ‘I sowed my fruit in hearts, and transformed them into myself; and they received my blessing and lived; and they were gathered to me, and were saved; because they were to me as my own members, and I was their Head’ (17:13, 14; cf. xxii. 16). Similarly, Christ speaks of His descent into Hades, where He gathers His saints and delivers them: ‘the feet and the head he [9] let go, for they were not able to endure my face’ (xlii. 18). These passages continue the mystic realism of Pauline and Johannine thought, and throw an interesting light on the earlier ideas of the relation of the believer to Christ, even though they belong to the 2nd century.

“Head” was used frequently to refer to inanimate objects such as the summit of a mountain (Exodus 17:9 ), or the top of a building (Genesis 11:4 ). The word “head” often has the meaning of “source” or “beginning,” that of rivers (Genesis 2:10 ), streets (Ezekiel 16:25 ), or of periods of time (Judges 7:19 , translated here as “beginning”). ...
In Psalm 118:22 , “head of the corner” (cornerstone) refers metaphorically to a king delivered by God when others had given him up (compare Matthew 21:42 ; Acts 4:11 ; 1 Peter 2:7 , where it is used in reference to the rejection of Christ). “Head” designated one in authority in the sense of the foremost person. Israel was the “head” (translated “chief”) nation, God's firstborn (Jeremiah 31:7 ). Damascus was the “head” (capital) of Syria (Isaiah 7:8 ). A husband is the “head of the wife” (Ephesians 5:23 ). ...
A distinctive theological use of the word “head” was seen in the New Testament concept of the “headship” of Christ. Christ is the “head” (kephale ) of His body the church; the church is His “bride” (Ephesians 5:23-33 ). In His role as “head,” Christ enables the church to grow, knits her into a unity, nourishes her by caring for each member, and gives her strength to build herself up in love (Ephesians 4:15-16 ). Not only is Christ “head” of the church, but also He is “head” of the universe as a whole (Ephesians 1:22 ) and of every might and power (Colossians 2:10 ). The divine influences on the world result in a series: God is the “head” of Christ; Christ is the “head” of man; man is the “head” of the woman, and as such he is to love and care for his wife as Christ does His bride (1 Corinthians 11:3 ). This theological use of the word may be an extension of the Old Testament use of the word “head” for the leader of the tribe or community or may be a reaction to early Gnostic tendencies. ...
Because the Head was the seat of life, value was placed on it. As part of contemptuous insult, the soldiers struck Jesus' Head with a reed and crowned Him with a crown of thorns (Mark 15:16-19 ). Herodias, through treachery and out of spite, had John the Baptist beheaded (Matthew 14:1-11 ). David cut off Goliath's Head and brought it before Saul (1 Samuel 17:51 ). The Philistines cut off Saul's Head (1 Samuel 31:9 ), and the sons of Rimmon cut off that of Ish-bosheth (2 Samuel 4:7 ). Attested to in many inscriptions and portrayed on several monuments, it was common for the Babylonians, Assyrians, and the Egyptians to cut off the Heads of their dead enemies slain in battle. ...
Conversely, blessing comes upon the Head (Genesis 49:26 ); and, therefore, hands are laid on it (Genesis 48:17 ). Anointing the Head with oil symbolized prosperity and joy (Psalm 23:5 ; Hebrews 1:9 ). In the service for ordination of priests and dedication to priestly service, the Head of the high priest was anointed with oil (Exodus 29:7 ; Leviticus 16:32 ). Human sins were transferred to the animal of the sin offering by laying on of hands upon the Head of the animal (Exodus 29:10 ,Exodus 29:10,29:15 ,Exodus 29:15,29:19 ). ...
The Head is involved in several colloquial expressions. The Jew swore by his Head (Matthew 5:36 ). Sadness or grief was shown by putting the hand on the Head or putting ashes on it (2 Samuel 13:19 ). In other instances, grief was shown by shaving the Head (Job 1:20 ). To “heap coals of fire upon his Head” was to make one's enemy feel ashamed by returning his evil with good (Proverbs 15:21-22 ; Romans 12:20 ). Wagging the Head expressed derision (Mark 15:29 ), but bowing the Head was a sign of humility (Isaiah 58:5 ). Finally, “The hoary Head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness” (Proverbs 16:31 )
Bonnet - peer), Exodus 39:28 (RSV, "head-tires"); Ezekiel 44:18 (RSV, "tires"), denotes properly a turban worn by priests, and in Isaiah 3:20 (RSV, "head-tires") a Head-dress or tiara worn by females.

It consisted of a piece of cloth twisted about the Head. In Exodus 28:40 ; 29:9 it is the translation of a different Hebrew word (migba'ah), which denotes the turban (RSV, "head-tire") of the common priest as distinguished from the mitre of the high priest

Head - This word has several significations, beside its natural one, which denotes the Head of a man. It is sometimes used in Scripture for the whole man: "Blessings are upon the Head of the just," Proverbs 10:6 . God says of the wicked, "I will recompense their way upon their Head," Ezekiel 9:10 . It signifies a chief or capital city: "The Head of Syria is Damascus," Isaiah 7:8 . It denotes a chief or principal member in society: "The Lord will cut off from Israel Head and tail. The ancient and honourable, he is the Head," Isaiah 9:14-15 . "The seed of the woman shall bruise the Head of the serpent," Genesis 3:15 ; that is, Christ Jesus, the blessed seed of the woman, shall overthrow the power, policy, and works of the devil. The river in paradise was divided into four Heads or branches. In times of grief, the mourners covered their Heads: they cut and plucked off their hair. Amos, speaking of unhappy times, says, "I will bring baldness upon every Head," Amos 8:10 . In prosperity, they anointed their Heads with sweet oils: "Let thy Head lack no" perfumed "ointment," Ecclesiastes 9:8 . To shake the Head at any one, expresses contempt: "The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her Head at thee," Isaiah 37:22 . ...
Head is taken for one that hath rule and preeminence over others. Thus God is the Head of Christ; as Mediator, from him he derives all his dignity and authority. Christ is the only spiritual Head of the church, both in respect of eminence and influence; he communicates life, motion, and strength to every believer. Also the husband is the Head of his wife, because by God's ordinance he is to rule over her, Genesis 3:16 ; also in regard to pre- eminence of sex, 1 Peter 3:7 , and excellency of knowledge, 1 Corinthians 14:35 . The Apostle mentions this subordination of persons in 1 Corinthians 11:3 : "But I would have you know, that the Head of every man is Christ, and the Head of the woman is the man, and the Head of Christ is God. " "The stone which the builders rejected was made the Head of the corner," Psalms 118:22

Head - Besides the common use of this as 'chief,' referring to the Heads of families and Heads of tribes, the word was used symbolically of government and power, as when God declared that the Seed of the woman should bruise the serpent's 'head. the term κεφαλή is employed for the relative position of man in nature, and of Christ and of God: the Head of the woman is the man; the Head of every man is Christ; and the Head of Christ is God. In another connection Christ is the Head of the church, Ephesians 5:23 ; Colossians 1:18 ; and He is Head over all things to the church. As Head of the church Christ removes entirely every other controlling or guiding authority. As the Head of a man guides and controls his body, so Christ has the complete control over His church. ...

Head - Head . Not the Head but the heart was regarded as the seat of intellect; it was, however, the seat of life, and was naturally held in honour. Hence phrases such as ‘keeper of my Head’ ( 1 Samuel 28:2 ; cf. Psalms 140:7 ), ‘swearing by the Head’ ( Matthew 5:36 ), and the metaphorical use, common to all languages, as equivalent to ‘chief. ’ In Deuteronomy 28:13 , Isaiah 9:14 , we find ‘head and tail’ as a proverbial expression. Christ is the Head of the Church ( Ephesians 4:15 , Colossians 1:18 ; Colossians 2:19 ), as man is of the woman ( Ephesians 5:23 ). To lift up the Head is to grant success ( Psalms 27:6 ; Psalms 110:7 , Genesis 41:13 , where there is an obvious ironical parallel in Genesis 41:19 ). The hand on the Head was a sign of mourning ( 2 Samuel 13:19 , Jeremiah 2:37 ); so dust or ashes ( 2 Samuel 1:2 , Lamentations 2:10 ); or covering the Head ( 2 Samuel 15:30 , Jeremiah 14:3 ). On the other hand, to uncover the Head, i. Similarly shaving the Head , a common practice in the East ( Job 1:20 , Isaiah 15:2 ; Isaiah 22:12 , Ezekiel 7:18 , Amos 8:10 ); it was forbidden to priests ( Leviticus 21:5 ), and, in special forms, to all Israelites ( Leviticus 19:27 , Deuteronomy 14:1 ). Laying hands on the Head was ( a ) part of the symbolism of sacrifice ( Leviticus 16:21 ), ( b ) a sign of blessing ( Genesis 48:14 ), ( c ) a sign of consecration or ordination ( Numbers 27:23 , Acts 6:6 ). ‘Head’ is also used, like ‘face,’ as a synonym for ‘self’ ( Psalms 7:16 ; and probably Proverbs 25:22 , Romans 12:20 )
Head - In most languages and cultures, a characteristic of everyday speech is to use the names of parts of the body (eyes, Head, hands, feet, etc. People in Bible times, for example, often referred to the Head in a figurative sense. This was because they considered the Head to be in some way representative of the whole person (1 Kings 2:32; Acts 18:6). ...
People in Bible times might therefore show their shame or grief by covering the Head, throwing dust on the Head, or shaving the Head (2 Samuel 15:30; Isaiah 15:2; Jeremiah 14:3; Revelation 18:19). By contrast people were honoured by the anointing or crowning of the Head (Psalms 23:5; Proverbs 4:9; Mark 14:3; Hebrews 2:9). Lifting up the Head symbolized victory (Psalms 3:3; Psalms 27:6; Psalms 110:7); hanging the Head symbolized shame or grief (Lamentations 2:10; Luke 18:13). ...
When used figuratively of people or nations, ‘head’ could indicate leadership or authority (Deuteronomy 28:13; Judges 11:9; 1 Samuel 15:17). The rulers of Israel were called the Heads of Israel (Micah 3:1). ...
By New Testament times the figurative usage of ‘head’ was largely concerned with its being the source of life and the seat of authority. This is clearly seen in Christ’s Headship of the church. As the Head is both the source and controller of the body’s life, so Christ is the source of the church’s life and has supreme authority over it (Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 4:15-16; Colossians 1:18; Colossians 2:10; Colossians 2:19). ...
Another form of Headship is found in the marriage relationship. The husband’s Headship of the wife results from the different responsibilities given to each as created by God. Although the husband’s Headship means that he has a certain authority, it does not mean that he is superior. The husband is Head of the wife in the same way as God the Father is Head of God the Son

Head - It would have been unnecessary to have noticed this article in the general acceptation of the word, since every one cannot but know, that as the Head of the body, in every thing that liveth, is the prime mover of the body; and, indeed, is sometimes put for the whole of the body, so is it in common conversation considered as the first and pre-disposing cause of all life and action, whether considered individually, or in a community at large. But the term Head when applied to the Lord Jesus Christ, as the Head of his body the "church," opens so sweet a subject for contemplation, that in a work of this kind it would be unpardonable to pass it by. Indeed, the subject even looks farther than this, and directs the mind of the truly regenerated believer to behold JEHOVAH, in his threefold character of person, as being the Head of Christ, considered in his mediatorial office, and giving truth to all the glorious purposes of salvation in him. It was the Lord JEHOVAH, in the great scheme of redemption, before the earth was formed, that set up Christ as the Head of his church. All the persons of the GODHEAD engaged in this plan of grace, and set the wheels agoing from all eternity; and hence God the Father is called the God and Father"of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family, in heaven and earth, is named. " (Ephesians 3:14-15) And as to God the Father is peculiarly ascribed the calling, of Christ, as the Head of his body the church, (Isaiah 42:6) so to God the Holy Ghost is peculiarly ascribed no less the anointing of Christ to the special office of Mediator. (Isaiah 48:16-17) And hence, in conformity to this order of things, the apostle tells the church, when speaking of this subject, "I would have you know, that the Head of every man is Christ, and the Head of the woman is the man, and the Head of Christ is God. " (1 Corinthians 11:3)...
Next, in the order of things, we may view the Headship of Christ to his church, and a most blessed and interesting subject it becomes to our view. Jesus, as Mediator, is the Head the Surety, the husband, the all in all, of his people. So that in this view of the Lord Jesus, and the church in him, it is incalculable in how many ways, and by what a variety of communications, this Headship of Christ becomes a source of continual joy and comfort to all his redeemed. They have an unceasing, communion with him whether they are conscious of it or not; and it should be among the highest felicities of the soul to go every day, and all the day, in the perpetual actings of faith upon the glorious person of the Lord Jesus, as the Head of his body the church, "the fulness of him that filleth all in all

In John 11:44; John 20:7 we are told that the Head of the dead had been bound about with a napkin. The literal rendering of the passage makes it clear that the napkin which had been placed about Christ’s Head before burial was discovered by the two disciples lying where His Head had been, in the undisturbed form of a coiled or twisted Head-wrapper. The verb ἐντετυλιγμένον should be rendered ‘coiled’ or ‘twisted up,’ and not ‘wrapped together’ as in Authorized Version , or ‘rolled up’ as in Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 , and implies that the napkin was found coiled or twisted together in turban-like fashion, just as if His Head had somehow slipped out of it, while the words χωρὶς … εἰς ἕνα τόπον, translated in both Authorized Version and Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 ‘in a place by itself,’ would be better translated ‘separately (not touching the linen clothes which had been swathing the body) into one place,’ εἰς ἕνα τόπον being the equivalent of εἱς ταὐτό in classical Greek
Crown - is a term properly taken for a cap of state worn on the Heads of sovereign princes, as a mark of regal dignity. The high priest wore a crown, which was girt about his mitre, or the lower part of his bonnet, and was tied about his Head. New-married persons of both sexes wore crowns upon their wedding day, Sonh of Solomon Exodus 3:11 ; and, alluding to this custom, it is said that when God entered into covenant with the Jewish nation, he put a beautiful crown upon their Head, Ezekiel 16:12 . The first crowns were no more than a bandelet drawn round the Head, and tied behind, as we see it still represented on medals, &c. The crown of a king was generally a white fillet bound about his forehead, the extremities whereof being tied behind the Head, fell back on the neck. That of the Jewish high priest, which is the most ancient of which we have any description, was a fillet of gold placed upon his forehead, and tied with a ribbon of a hyacinth colour, or azure blue. David took the crown of the king of the Ammonites from off his Head; the crown weighed a talent of gold, and was moreover enriched with jewels, 2 Samuel 12:30 ; 1 Chronicles 20:2 . The crown was placed upon the Head of young King Josiah, when he was presented to the people, in order to be acknowledged by them, 2 Chronicles 23:11 . ...

Headship - HEADSHIP...
i. The word ‘head’ (κεφαλή), as applied to the relation of Christ to His Church, occurs only three times in the Gospels, and there in the passages in the Synoptics (Matthew 21:42 || Mark 12:10 || Luke 20:17) in which, applying the lesson of the parable of the Wicked Husbandmen, Jesus quotes Psalms 118:22 in the Septuagint version, ‘The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the Head of the corner’ (οὗτος ἐγενήθη εἰς κεφαλἡν γωνίας), where the expression κεφαλὴν γωνίας is an exact rendering of the Hebrew רא̇שׁ פּנְּה. Paul when he describes Jesus Christ Himself as the chief corner-stone of a holy temple (Ephesians 2:20), we find the connecting link between the idea of the Headship of Christ as it is expressed in the Gospels and the similar conception of St. Peter, while keeping to the architectural figure suggested by the passages quoted from the Psalms and Isaiah, and speaking of Christ as ‘head stone of the corner’ (κεφαλὴ γωνίας), adds the thought of life to that of unity. Paul, still further working out the same idea, adopts a different figure, that of the Head as the seat of life in the body, that which controls and regulates the action of each individual member (Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 4:15-16; Ephesians 5:23; Ephesians 5:28-30, Colossians 1:18; Colossians 2:19). The idea of Headship is suggested in the Gospels in connexion with another figure, in our Lord’s similitude of the Vine (John 15:1 ff. As the Head no less than the heart is the seat of life in the human body, inasmuch as the brain is the centre of the nervous system, and the nerves radiating from the brain and spinal cord are the source of the healthy activity of every part, the beautiful description which St. Paul gives (Colossians 2:19)—‘the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God’—corresponds to what Christ says in His parable of the Vine of the source of life and fruitfulness, with the thought of the healthy flow of life-giving sap which His words suggest: ‘As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself except it abide in the vine, no more can ye except ye abide in me. Again, the thought of Headship is involved in that view of the Church’s relation to Christ which our Lord presents in the blessing pronounced on St. ’ That which constitutes the Church and invests her with authority and power, that which is the source of her life and energy, is the presence with her of Christ as her living Head, in whose name and guided by whose Spirit she discharges her spiritual functions. —The Headship of Christ, suggested in the teaching of our Lord Himself, is expressly taught in the Pauline Epp. For while emphasis is especially laid on Christ’s Headship over the Church, suggestions are given for a doctrine of His Headship over the human race and even over the whole created universe. Christ’s Headship over the Church. under the figure of a body whose several members (eye, hand, Head, feet, Romans 12:21) are individual Christians. In the first place, Christ is no longer thought of as Himself the whole body, of which individuals are the members—the Head being a particular member like the rest. The Church is now the body, from which He is distinguished as the Head (Ephesians 1:22 f. To this Church, Christ is ‘head over all things’; while it is ‘his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all’ (Ephesians 1:22 f. Christ’s Headship over the human race. —In 1 Corinthians 11:3 the Apostle writes, ‘The Head of every man is Christ. ’ Here we have a doctrine of Headship stretching out beyond the limits even of the universal Church. The Incarnation not only reveals the kinship of the ‘man from heaven’ with all the sons of men; it sets Him before them as the true spiritual Head of humanity, in whom the race is ideally summed up. Christ’s Headship over the universe. —In Ephesians 1:10 we read that it is God’s purpose ‘to gather together all things under a Head (ἀνακεφαλαιώσασθαι τὰ πάντα) in Christ, the things in the heavens and the things upon the earth. ’ And in Colossians 2:10 Christ is expressly called ‘the Head of all principality and power’—words which are explained in Colossians 1:15-16, where He is declared to be ‘the firstborn of all creation,’ in whom ‘were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him and unto him; and he is before all things, and in him all things consist. ’ In these passages there is affirmed of Christ a relation of Headship to the universe alike for the past, the present, and the future. In Him they even now consist as their vital Head, the underlying ground of their very being. And unto Him from whom they had their origin they shall all finally return, in the day of that great consummation when God shall ‘gather together all things under a Head in Christ. ’...
With this Pauline doctrine of the Headship of Christ over (1) the Church, (2) the human race, (3) the universe, it is interesting to compare the teaching of the Fourth Gospel regarding (1) the union of Christ as the living Vine with His people as the branches (John 15:1 ff

After the Ascension Peter, by virtue of this commission, repeatedly acted as spokesman and Head of the infant Church.

Paul as an Evangelical Mystic - ...
When you take to reading the best books you will be sure to come continually on such strange descriptions and expressions as these: Christ mystical; Christ our mystical Head; Christ our mystical Root; the mystical Union of Christ with all true believers; the mystical identity of Christ with all true believers,-and suchlike strange expressions. Ere ever we are aware we ourselves are mystics already as soon as we begin to read in John about the Living Bread, and the True Vine; and in Paul about the Head of the Church and His indwelling in us. But Paul, after his great manner, goes on to show us that Christ is not the only mystical Head that this so mystically-constituted world of ours has seen. First and last, as that great evangelical and speculative mystic has had it revealed to him, there have been two mystical Heads set over the human race. Our first mystical Head was Adam, and our second mystical Head is Christ. But, all the time, above Adam, and before Adam, and only waiting till Adam had shipwrecked his Headship and all who were in it with him, stood the second Adam ready to restore that He had not taken away. "And hath put all things under his feet," proclaims the great mystic, "and gave Him to be the Head over all things to the Church, which is His body. " And again, "Him which is the Head, even Christ, in whom the whole body maketh increase unto the edifying of itself in love. " And again, "And He is the Head of the body: for it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell. "...
But while Paul has many magnificent things to teach us about the mystical Headship of Christ over His Church, at the same time, it is the mystical union of Christ with each individual believer, and each individual believer's mystical union with Christ,-it is this that completes and crowns Paul's evangelical doctrine and kindles his most rapturous adoration. The same life that is in the Head is in the member. And as the Son of Man, and ever since His ascension and reception, He has dwelt in heaven as one of God's glorified saints, and at the Head of them. But, over and above being both Son of God and Son of Man: from the mystical union of the Godhead and the Manhood in His Divine Person, He is the Christ also. Christ mystical is made up not of the Head only, but of the Head and the members taken together. And, as apart from the Head the members have no life; so, neither apart from His members has the Head anywhere to dwell. Nay, apart from His members, the Head has no real and proper existence. They just begin to do, each, their proper work, and the moment they so begin, your Head and your heart immediately send down their virtue into your hands and your feet. And so is it with the mystical Head and His mystical members. " But why argue out such remote and historical instances when we have it all within ourselves? Let any man among ourselves carry about Christ in his own heart; let any man abide in Christ as the branch abides in the vine: let any man cleave as close to Christ as a member of our body cleaves close to its Head: let any man say unceasingly every day, and in every cross and temptation of every day, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live: yet not I, but Christ liveth in me;" and you will be absolutely sure to find that man the most willing, the most active, the most practical, and the most efficient man in every kind of Christian work

Oil - When we consider that the whole office of the Holy Ghost in that feature of his sovereign character, namely, the unction of the Spirit, is described by anointing, and this not only of the persons of the members of Christ's mystical body, but Christ, the glorious Head himself; when we consider Christ, really and truly so called, and literally becoming Christ, from this anointing of God the Holy Ghost, the subject of the holy oil, as typical of these blessed things, riseth in importance to our view, and demands the closest attention of every truly awakened heart. "...
And what a blessed thought it is, that as the holy oil was poured on the Head of Aaron, the great high priest of the Jewish dispensation, which ran down to the skirts of his clothing, so God the Holy Ghost anointed Jesus, our great and almighty High Priest, to whom Aaron was but the shadow, with "the oil of joy and gladness above and for his fellows;" yea, the Spirit was not given by measure unto him, for in him all fulness dwelleth?

Red Sea - , to the modern Head of the Gulf of Suez, lat. " about the Head of the gulf has risen and that near the Mediterranean become depressed. The Head of the gulf has consequently retired gradually since the Christian era. Thus the prophecy of Isaiah has been fulfilled, ( Isaiah 11:15 ; 10:5 ) the tongue of the Red Sea has dried up for a distance of at least 50 miles from its ancient Head. The drying up of the Head of the gulf appears to have been one of the chief causes of the neglect and ruin of this canal. " At the northern extremity of this salt waste is a small lake, sometimes called the Lake of Heropolis; the lake is now Birket-et-Timsah "the lake of the crocodile," and is supposed to mark the ancient Head of the gulf. " The time at which the canal was extended, after the drying up of the Head of the gulf, to the present Head is uncertain, but it must have been late, and probably since the Mohammedan conquest. The coral of the Red Sea is remarkably abundant, and beautifully colored and variegated; but it forms so many reefs and islands along the shores that navigation is very dangerous, and the shores are chiefly barren rock and sand, and therefore very sparsely inhabited so that there are but three cities along the whole 1450 miles of its west coast --Suez, at the Head, a city of 14,000 inhabitants; Sanakin, belonging to Soudan, of 10,000; and Massau, in Albyssinia, of 5000. It is usual to suppose that the most northern place at which the Red Sea could have been crossed is the present Head of the Gulf of Suez. The old bed is indicated by the Birket-et Timsah , or "lake of the crocodile," and the more southern Bitter Lakes, the northernmost part of the former probably corresponding to the Head of it the at the time of the exodus

The same belief in the peculiar vitality of the hair may underlie the proverbial reference to it; ‘there shall not a hair perish from the Head of any of you’ (Acts 27:34; cf. Judith ‘braided the hair of her Head’ when she set out to fascinate Holofernes (Judith 10:3), and there are Talmudic references to the art (Buxtorf’s Lexicon, 1639, col
Hair - But among the Hebrews the men did not shave their Heads; they wore their natural hair, though not long; and it is certain that they were at a very remote period, initiated in the art of cherishing and beautifying the hair with fragrant ointments. The Head of Aaron was anointed with a precious oil, compounded after the art of the apothecary; and in proof that they had already adopted the practice, the congregation were prohibited, under pain of being cut off, to make any other like it, after the composition of it, Exodus 30:32-33 . The royal Psalmist alludes to the same custom in the twenty-third Psalm: "Thou anointest my Head with oil. " We may infer from the direction of Solomon, that the custom had at least become general in his time: "Let thy garments be always white, and let thy Head lack no ointment," Ecclesiastes 9:8 . After the hair is plaited and perfumed, the eastern ladies proceed to dress their Heads, by tying above the lock into which they collect it, a triangular piece of linen, adorned with various figures in needlework

Head Gestures 1. Shaking one's Head communicates scorn and reproach (Psalm 22:7 ; Lamentations 2:15 ; Matthew 27:39 ; Mark 15:29 ). Lifting one's Head can indicate exaltation (Psalm 27:6 ), contempt (Psalm 83:2 ), and freedom (2 Kings 25:27 ). Bowing of one's Head shows reverence in worship and prayer (Genesis 24:26 ; Nehemiah 8:6 ). The placing of hands on someone's Head shows favor and blessing as in the acknowledgment of an office (Acts 6:6 ) or in the coming of the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:17 ).

Phylacteries - The Mishna taught that’ be who has Tephillin on his Head and his arm, Tsitsith on his garment, and Mezuzah on his door, has every possible guarantee that he will not sin. ...
Phylacteries are of two kinds, those for the hand and those for the Head. In the case of the Head phylactery a similar box was prepared, but with four divisions, in which were placed in order, beginning from the left side, the four above named passages of the Pentateuch. The box of the other was placed on the forehead, where the hair ceases to grow, the band taken round the Head and fastened with a knot like the letter Dâleth (ר), while the two ends were made to hang down in front over the shoulders. The Shîn on the box, the Dâleth knot on the Head phylactery, and the Yôdh knot on the hand phylactery, made the letters of one of the Divine Names—שׁדַּי Shadddâi, ‘Almighty. ’ An almost identical one is uttered during the placing of that for the Head, and when it is finished—‘Blessed be His name, whose glorious kingdom is for ever and ever. In removing, the fastening of the hand is first undone, the Head phylactery removed, then that on the arm; they are kissed and placed in a bag, as. Thus in Matthew 22:34 || it may be considered as certain that the group of Pharisees with whom our Lord held His controversy wore their broadened phylacteries, and that the passage He quoted, the Shema’, the foundation of Hebrew religion, would be found in the phylacteries they carried on their Heads and arms

Laying on of Hands - ...
In Israel’s sacrificial system, before offering an animal in sacrifice, the offerers laid their hands on the animal’s Head, indicating that the animal was their representative in bearing their sins (Leviticus 1:4; Leviticus 4:1-4). When Israel’s tribal leaders, acting on behalf of the whole nation, laid their hands on the Heads of the Levites, they symbolized that the Levites were their representatives in the service of God (Numbers 8:10-11). It may have been a transferal of sin, such as happened when the high priest confessed the sins of Israel over the Head of a goat on the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16:21-22); or it may have been a transferal of good, such as happened when a father passed on his blessing to his children (Genesis 48:14-16; cf

Dead - " The bereaved Greeks tore, cut off, and sometimes shaved, their hair; they reckonded it a duty which they owed to the dead, to deprive their Heads of the greatest part of their honours, or, in the language of Scripture, made a baldness between their eyes. When the patriarch Job was informed of the death of his children, and the destruction of his property, he arose and rent his mantle, and shaved his Head, and fell down upon the ground and worshipped; and in the prophecies of Jeremiah, we read of eighty men who were going to lament the desolations of Jerusalem, having their beards shaven, and their clothes rent, and having cut themselves, in direct violation of the divine law, with offerings and incense in their hand, to bring them to the house of the Lord, Jeremiah 41:5 . Such a violent expression of sorrow is exemplified in the conduct of Ezra, which he thus describes:...
"And when I heard this thing I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my Head, and of my beard, and sat down astonied,"...
Ezra 9:3 . In this way Tamar signified her distress, after being dishonoured by Amnon, "She put ashes on her Head;" and when Mordecai understood that the doom of his nation was sealed, he "rent his clothes, and put on sackcloth with ashes. Intimately connected with this, is the custom of putting dust upon the Head. When the armies of Israel were defeated before Ai, "Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face, he and the elders of Israel, and put dust upon their Heads. " The mourner sometimes laid his hands upon his Head; for the prophet, expostulating with his people, predicts their humiliation in these words: "Yea, thou shalt go forth from him, and thine hands upon thine Head; for the Lord hath rejected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper in them," Jeremiah 2:37 . In both these cases, the Head of the mourner was uncovered; but they sometimes adopted the opposite custom, and covered their Heads in great distress, or when they were loaded with disgrace and infamy. This allusion is perhaps revolved in the charge which Ezekiel received when his wife died, to abstain from the customary forms of mourning: "Forbear to cry; make no mourning for the dead; bind the tire of thy Head upon thee, and put on thy shoes upon thy feet, and cover not thy lips, and eat not the bread of men,"...
Ezekiel 24:17 . Thus the prophet represents the elders of Israel, after the destruction of Jerusalem, and the captivity of those whom the sword had spared: "The elders of the daughter of Zion sit upon the ground, and keep silence; they have cast up dust upon their Heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloth; the virgins of Jerusalem hang down their Heads to the ground," Lamentations 2:10

Here then on him and his building they hang all their bucklers and shields, even to a thousand and ten thousand; for all is founded in him, and to him, and by him; on him himself they hang all the glory of his Father's house?

Serpent - Its crested Head of pride, glittering skin, fascinating, unshaded, gazing eye, shameless lust, tortuous movement, venomous bite, groveling posture, all adapt it to be type of Satan.

Nebuchadnezzar, or Nebuchadrezzar - thou art this Head of gold.

" Their demand for a king was offensive to him, as an unbelieving and rebellious departure from the more immediate Headship of Jehovah, 1 Samuel 8:7 . It was a prophet or high priest of Jehovah who anointed the king, and placed the crown upon his Head and the scepter in his hand, Deuteronomy 17:15,18-20 1 Samuel 10:1 12:12-15 2 Samuel 1:14,21 1 Kings 1:39 2 Kings 9:1-6 11:2-12 Psalm 21:3 .
