1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Key, John
(Kay, John; Key, John) (1510-1573) Physician and scholar, born Norwich, England; died London. He lectured on anatomy, wrote medical treatises and translations and a history of Cambridge University, and was president of the College of Physicians. He refounded Gonville College, renamed Gonville and Caius College (1558). Under Edward VI he became royal physician, but was dismissed under Elizabeth because he was a Catholic.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - David, Key of
Christ according to Apocalypse 1, has the Key of David. The expression is suggested by Isaias 22, where Eliacim is represented as having "the Key of the house of David" slung over his shoulder, as a symbol of power. Christ is set over the House of God (Ephesians 1; Hebrews 3), and exercises all authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28) and even in the nether world (Apocalypse 1). The reference to David recalls the prophecies fulfilled in the exaltation of Christ.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Key
Frequently mentioned in Scripture. It is called in Hebrew Maphteah , I.e., the opener ( Judges 3:25 ); and in the Greek New Testament Kleis , From its use in shutting ( Matthew 16:19 ; Luke 11:52 ; Revelation 1:18 , etc.). Figures of ancient Egyptian keys are frequently found on the monuments, also of Assyrian locks and keys of wood, and of a large size (Compare Isaiah 22:22 ). The word is used figuratively of power or authority or office (Isaiah 22:22 ; Revelation 3:7 ; Revelation 1:8 ; comp 9:1; 20:1; Compare also Matthew 16:19 ; 18:18 ). The "key of knowledge" (Luke 11:52 ; Compare Matthew 23:13 ) is the means of attaining the knowledge regarding the kingdom of God. The "power of the keys" is a phrase in general use to denote the extent of ecclesiastical authority.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Key
Song of Solomon 5:4-5. A piece of wood, from seven inches to two feet long, fitted with pegs which correspond to small holes in the bolt within; the key put through a hole draws the bolt. The symbol of authority to open or shut (Isaiah 22:22; Revelation 3:7; Revelation 1:18). A chamberlain's (eunuch) badge of office is often a key, hung by a kerchief "on the shoulders" (Isaiah 9:6). The power of the keys was given to Peter and the other apostles only at times (Matthew 16:19; Matthew 18:18) when, and in so far as, Christ made him and them infallible. Peter rightly opened the gospel door to the Gentiles (Acts 10; Acts 11:17-18; Acts 14:27), but he wrongly tried to shut it again (Galatians 2:11-18; compare Luke 11:52).

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Key
It is remarkable that ‘key’ in the concrete form does not occur in the apostolic writings. The four occurrence in Rev. are symbolical. There are certain passages in Acts where we should expect mention of a key, but the circumstances are exceptional, and ‘key’ is omitted (Acts 12:10; Acts 16:26-27). When a porter was in attendance, admittance was given from the inside, and a key to open was not necessary (cf. Acts 12:14-15). From the fact that city gates were guarded, the need for a key was in this case also absent. It may be noted that the chains by which prisoners were secured, and the stocks in which their feet were made fast, were in all likelihood secured by the equivalent of a key (Acts 12:6-7; Acts 16:24 etc.).
We remark the difference between the Hebrew word (מַפְתֵּחַ), ‘that which opens,’ and the Greek and Latin (κλείς, clavis), ‘that which shuts.’ This seems to correspond with actual usage. Among the Hebrews the lock was arranged in such a manner that the key was requisitioned only for opening (see illust. in Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible (5 vols) ii. 836). The bar was shot, and the lock acted of itself, but it could be withdrawn only by aid of a key or opener. This advanced mode of making fast a door was doubtless preceded and attended by a simpler process, whereby the bolt or bar could be moved forwards and backwards by means of a hoot passing through a slit in the door. This served to shut the door, but did not make it absolutely secure as in the other case. For the age with which we have to deal we must think of the key as a device by which one outside held command over the closed door. Having shut it in the first instance, one had power to open it by applying the key.
The imagery of Rev., so far as ‘key’ is concerned, implies power and authority on the part of one standing outside and having possession of the key. This power is in the hands of angelic beings, who are above earth, and chiefly in the hands of the Risen Christ. Their dominion is manifested upon earth and in the under world, over living and dead.
(1) Christ has the keys of death and of Hades (Revelation 1:18, Revised Version ). This power is Imperial, exercised from without and from above. There are interesting parallels to this, apart from Scripture, in literature, both earlier and later. When Ištar descended to the land of no-return she called imperiously to the porter to open the door, and threatened in case of refusal to shatter the door and break the bolt. Here the power is primitively conceived, and remains largely with the one within. For later and more advanced conceptions see Dante, Purg. ix. 65ff., and Milton, Paradise Lost, ii. 774ff., 850ff. In both these instances the power, although great, is still limited.
(2) Angelic authority is evident in Revelation 9:1; Revelation 20:1, where the key of the ‘pit’ or ‘well’ of the abyss, or of the abyss simply, is spoken of. This power was delegated (‘was given,’ 9:1). That some symbol of power was bestowed seems clear from 20:1, where the key and a great chain for binding are seen in the angel’s hand (or attached to his person). The figure of the key here directs our thought to the pits or wells of ancient times, whose opening was safeguarded against illegitimate use by a covering of some kind. The primitive setting of such coverings would naturally be horizontal, but here the imagery, extending to key, points rather to a door set upright and secured by bolt or lock. The stone doors of tombs may be compared.
(3) Upon earth itself Christ’s unlimited authority is exercised over the churches, including that in Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7). The ‘key of David’ here mentioned is reminiscent of Isaiah 22:22, where some sort of investiture is in the writer’s mind (Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible (5 vols) v. 172). In this instance power is exhibited in the most absolute form, and made over to the Church in the sense of a ‘door opened,’ for the enjoyment rather than for the extension of the gospel (see R. W. Pounder, Hist. Notes on the Book of Revelation, 1912, p. 140). It is not surprising that the reading of this verse should have been attracted to Revelation 1:18, as appears in some inferior Manuscripts (ἅδον for Δαυείδ).
See further Dict. of Christ and the Gospels , article ‘Keys.’ For specimens of actual keys discovered in the course of excavation see R. A. S. Macalister, The Excavation of Gezer, 1912, i. 187 and ii. 271. Further illustrations in A. Rich, Dict. of Roman and Greek Antiquities3, 1873, s.v. ‘Clavis.’

(n.) A key for opening more locks than one; a master key.
Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Key
Isaiah 22:22 (b) By this figure our Lord is describing the right of JESUS CHRIST to rule and to reign. He only can consign men to Heaven or to hell. He has never delegated this power to another. (See Revelation 1:18).
Matthew 16:19 The two keys given to Peter were evidently the two Gospels: one Gospel for the Jews which included baptism for the remission of sins; the other Gospel for the Gentiles in which salvation is by faith alone. By means of these two Gospel keys, Peter was used of GOD to bring thousands to CHRIST.
Luke 11:52 (b) This key is probably the person of the Lord Jesus Himself for when He is ignored, overlooked, or denied in the Scriptures, then there can be no knowledge of the truth of GOD, nor of the will of GOD.
Revelation 1:18 (a) The Lord JESUS controls the destiny of the soul. He alone can send a man to hell. He alone decides the day of one's death. His will and decision in these matters is described as a key.
Revelation 3:7 (a) This represents the right of the Lord JESUS to erect the throne of David again, to sit upon it, and to execute sovereign powers. This right is described as a key.
Revelation 9:1 (a) The key in this passage represents the divine right and power given by GOD to the angel to open and close the pit of hell in order that the purposes of GOD might be performed.
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Key
I should not think it necessary to notice this, the thing is so familiar, were it not that the Lord Jesus hath condescended to use the figure with reference to his grace and power. He calls himself the "Key of David, who openeth and none shutteth; who shutteth and none openeth." (Revelation 3:7; Isaiah 22:22) It is blessed to see in how many ways the Lord manifests the supremacy of his power, He hath the key of heaven, to admit whom he pleaseth: he hath the key of hell, to shut up all his foes; he hath the key of his word, to unfold the mysteries of his kingdom; he hath the key of the heart, to open it, and to render that word effectual. Hence, in all things, from the highest heaven to the lowest hell, Jesus governs. What a sweet thought for all his redeemed to cherish! He it is that opens his church, opens the mouth of his ministers and the souls of his saints, opens the opportunities of ordinances, and gives blessings to ordinances, and the several means of grace upon earth, and finally; fully, and completely opens an entrance for all his redeemed into his everlasting kingdom in heaven. Gracious Lord Jesus, "open thou mine eyes, that I may see the wondrous things of thy law!"
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Key
Used symbolically for authority to open or to shut. Spoken of Eliakim, 'established by God,' as having the key of the house of David laid upon his shoulder: "he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open." Isaiah 22:22 . He is a type of the Lord Jesus, as spoken of in Revelation 3:7 , who has also the keys of hades and of death. Revelation 1:18 . To Peter were given the keys of the kingdom of heaven, Matthew 16:19 , which he opened to the Jews in Acts 2 , and to the Gentiles in Acts 10 . The Lord charged the doctors of the law with taking away the key of knowledge. Luke 11:52 . This they did by their traditions and by hindering those who would have entered in to the blessings brought by Christ.

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Key
is frequently mentioned in Scripture, as well in a natural as in a figurative sense. The keys of the ancients were very different from ours; because their doors and trunks were closed generally with bands, and the key served only to loosen or fasten these bands in a certain manner. In a moral sense key has many significations: "And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder: so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open," Isaiah 22:22 ,—he shall be grand master and principal officer of his prince's house. Christ promises to St. Peter, that he should first open the gate of his kingdom, both to Jew and Gentile, in making the first converts among them, Matthew 16:19 .
It is observable that no supremacy is here given to St. Peter; as the power of binding and loosing belonged equally to all the Apostles, Matthew 18:18 . The term binding and loosing was customarily applied by the Jews to a decision respecting doctrines or rites, establishing which were lawful and which unlawful. ( See BIND. ) And it may also denote, to bind with sickness, and to loose by restoring to health. Jesus Christ says that he has the key of death and hell, Revelation 1:18 ; that is, it is in his power to bring to the grave, or to deliver from it; to appoint to life or to death.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Key
1: κλείς (Strong's #2807 — Noun Feminine — kleis — klice ) "a key," is used metaphorically (a) of "the keys of the kingdom of heaven," which the Lord committed to Peter, Matthew 16:19 , by which he would open the door of faith, as he did to Jews at Pentecost, and to Gentiles in the person of Cornelius, acting as one commissioned by Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit; he had precedence over his fellow disciples, not in authority, but in the matter of time, on the ground of his confession of Christ (Matthew 18:16 ); equal authority was committed to them (Matthew 18:18 ); (b) of "the key of knowledge," Luke 11:52 , i.e., knowledge of the revealed will of God, by which men entered into the life that pleases God; this the religious leaders of the Jews had presumptuously "taken away," so that they neither entered in themselves, nor permitted their hearers to do so; (c) of "the keys of death and of Hades," Revelation 1:18 , RV (see HADES), indicative of the authority of the Lord over the bodies and souls of men; (d) of "the key of David," Revelation 3:7 , a reference to Isaiah 22:22 , speaking of the deposition of Shebna and the investiture of Eliakim, in terms evidently Messianic, the metaphor being that of the right of entrance upon administrative authority; the mention of David is symbolic of complete sovereignty; (e) of "the key of the pit of the abyss," Revelation 9:1 ; here the symbolism is that of competent authority; the pit represents a shaft or deep entrance into the region (see ABYSS), from whence issued smoke, symbolic of blinding delusion; (f) of "the key of the abyss," Revelation 20:1 ; this is to be distinguished from (e): the symbolism is that of the complete supremacy of God over the region of the lost, in which, by angelic agency, Satan is destined to be confined for a thousand years.

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Key
The key of a native Oriental lock is a piece of wood, from seven inches to two feet in length, fitted with the wires or short nails, which, being inserted laterally into the hollow bolt which serves as a lock, raises other pins within the staple so as to allow the bolt to be drawn back. (Keys were sometimes of bronze or iron, and so large that one was as much as a man could carry. They are used in Scripture as a symbol of authority and power. Giving keys to a person signifies the intrusting of him with an important charge. (Matthew 16:19 ) In England in modern times certain officers of the government receive, at their induction into office, a golden key. --ED.)

(2) Angelic authority is evident in Revelation 9:1; Revelation 20:1, where the Key of the ‘pit’ or ‘well’ of the abyss, or of the abyss simply, is spoken of. That some symbol of power was bestowed seems clear from 20:1, where the Key and a great chain for binding are seen in the angel’s hand (or attached to his person). The figure of the Key here directs our thought to the pits or wells of ancient times, whose opening was safeguarded against illegitimate use by a covering of some kind. The primitive setting of such coverings would naturally be horizontal, but here the imagery, extending to Key, points rather to a door set upright and secured by bolt or lock. The ‘key of David’ here mentioned is reminiscent of Isaiah 22:22, where some sort of investiture is in the writer’s mind (Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible (5 vols) v. of Christ and the Gospels , article ‘Keys. ’ For specimens of actual Keys discovered in the course of excavation see R

In Matthew 16:19 the word is used again metaphorically, in the address to Peter: ‘I will give unto thee the Keys of the kingdom of heaven.

In Revelation 1:18 the Son of Man in John’s vision says: ‘I have the Keys of death and of Hades,’ i.

In like manner a claim to at least Messianic dignity is involved in the phrase in Revelation 3:7 ‘he that hath the Key of David. ’ The allusion is clearly to the promise in Isaiah 22:22 ‘I will give to him (Eliakim) the Key of the house of David upon his shoulder,’ a passage which, according to Zullich, was commonly referred by Jewish commentators to the Messiah. ...

Key - 1: κλείς (Strong's #2807 — Noun Feminine — kleis — klice ) "a Key," is used metaphorically (a) of "the Keys of the kingdom of heaven," which the Lord committed to Peter, Matthew 16:19 , by which he would open the door of faith, as he did to Jews at Pentecost, and to Gentiles in the person of Cornelius, acting as one commissioned by Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit; he had precedence over his fellow disciples, not in authority, but in the matter of time, on the ground of his confession of Christ (Matthew 18:16 ); equal authority was committed to them (Matthew 18:18 ); (b) of "the Key of knowledge," Luke 11:52 , i. , knowledge of the revealed will of God, by which men entered into the life that pleases God; this the religious leaders of the Jews had presumptuously "taken away," so that they neither entered in themselves, nor permitted their hearers to do so; (c) of "the Keys of death and of Hades," Revelation 1:18 , RV (see HADES), indicative of the authority of the Lord over the bodies and souls of men; (d) of "the Key of David," Revelation 3:7 , a reference to Isaiah 22:22 , speaking of the deposition of Shebna and the investiture of Eliakim, in terms evidently Messianic, the metaphor being that of the right of entrance upon administrative authority; the mention of David is symbolic of complete sovereignty; (e) of "the Key of the pit of the abyss," Revelation 9:1 ; here the symbolism is that of competent authority; the pit represents a shaft or deep entrance into the region (see ABYSS), from whence issued smoke, symbolic of blinding delusion; (f) of "the Key of the abyss," Revelation 20:1 ; this is to be distinguished from (e): the symbolism is that of the complete supremacy of God over the region of the lost, in which, by angelic agency, Satan is destined to be confined for a thousand years

Gregory we read that it was the custom for the popes to send a golden Key to princes, wherein they inclosed a little of the filings of St. Peter's chain, kept with such devotion at Rome; and that these Keys were worn in the bosom, as being supposed to contain some wonderful virtues!

Ephesians, Theology of - ...
The Key to the theology of Ephesians is the second chapter, where Paul sets forth the implications of the equal union of Jews and Gentiles in the one body, the church. ...
A number of Key theological terms and arguments in Ephesians revolve around these two concepts: (1) the historical and cosmological role of the Jews in God's redemptive history from the time of Abraham; and (2) Paul's own place in that process, that of bringing in the Gentiles as full participants in the kingdom, which evil forces in the cosmos conspired to prevent and thus to destroy the work of Christ. Another Key to understanding Ephesians is recognizing that in this book a Jewish author is writing to a Gentile audience. In this respect the pronouns in Ephesians provide a Key to the theology of the book. ...
These compound verbs furnish a Key point in the theology of Ephesians. " A third Key element in the theology of Ephesians is the differentiation between Jewish and Gentile Christians by the consistent use of the words "God's people" in reference to Jewish Christians.

It is possible, however, to gain some insights into disciplinary practice in the early Christian churches by examining Key Pauline texts for evidence of procedural elements, culpable behaviors, and intended effects. ...
A survey of the Key passages does not strongly support the view that disciplinary action becomes increasingly centralized and formalized through the New Testament period. The Key text in this regard is 1 Corinthians 5:1-5 , where Paul responds to a case of incest by commanding, "hand this man over to Satan, " an expression employed similarly in 1 Timothy 1:20 . Thus the Key to effective discipline is its reflexive element
