Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Preparation, Prepare, Prepared
A — 1: ἑτοιμασία (Strong's #2091 — Noun Feminine — hetoimasia — het-oy-mas-ee'-ah ) denotes (a) "readiness," (b) "preparation;" it is found in Ephesians 6:15 , of having the feet shod with the "preparation" of the Gospel of peace; it also has the meaning of firm footing (foundation), as in the Sept. of Psalm 89:14 (RV, "foundation"); if that is the meaning in Ephesians 6:15 , the Gospel itself is to be the firm footing of the believer, his walk being worthy of it and therefore a testimony in regard to it. See READY.
A — 2: παρασκευή (Strong's #3904 — Noun Feminine — paraskeue — par-ask-yoo-ay' ) denotes "preparation, equipment." The day on which Christ died is called "the Preparation" in Mark 15:42 ; John 19:31 ; in John 19:42 "the Jews' Preparation," RV; in John 19:14 it is described as "the Preparation of the Passover;" in Luke 23:54 , RV, "the day of the Preparation (and the Sabbath drew on)." The same day is in view in Matthew 27:62 , where the events recorded took place on "the day after the Preparation" (RV). The reference would be to the 6th day of the week. The title arose from the need of preparing food etc. for the Sabbath. Apparently it was first applied only to the afternoon of the 6th day; later, to the whole day. In regard to the phraseology in John 19:14 , many hold this to indicate the "preparation" for the paschal feast. It probably means "the Preparation day," and thus falls in line with the Synoptic Gospels. In modern Greek and ecclesiastical Latin, Parasceve == Friday.
B — 1: ἑτοιμάζω (Strong's #2090 — Verb — hetoimazo — het-oy-mad'-zo ) "to prepare, make ready," is used (I) absolutely, e.g., Mark 14:15 ; Luke 9:52 ; (II) with an object, e.g., (a) of those things which are ordained (1) by God, such as future positions of authority, Matthew 20:23 ; the coming Kingdom, Matthew 25:34 ; salvation personified in Christ, Luke 2:31 ; future blessings, 1 Corinthians 2:9 ; a city, Hebrews 11:16 ; a place of refuge for the Jewish remnant, Revelation 12:6 ; Divine judgments on the world, Revelation 8:6 ; 9:7,15 ; 16:12 ; eternal fire, for the Devil and his angels, Matthew 25:41 ; (2) by Christ: a place in Heaven for His followers, John 14:2,3 ; (b) of human "preparation" for the Lord, e.g., Matthew 3:3 ; 26:17,19 ; Luke 1:17 ("make ready"),76; 3:4, AV (RV, "make ye ready"); Luke 9:52 ("to make ready"); 23:56; Revelation 19:7 ; 21:2 ; in 2 Timothy 2:21 , of "preparation" of oneself for "every good work;" (c) of human "preparations" for human objects, e.g., Luke 12:20 , RV, "thou hast prepared" (AV, "provided"); Acts 23:23 ; Philemon 1:22 .
B — 2: καταρτίζω (Strong's #2675 — Verb — katartizo — kat-ar-tid'-zo ) "to furnish completely, prepare," is translated "didst Thou prepare" in Hebrews 10:5 (AV, "hast Thou prepared"), of the body of the Lord Jesus. See FIT , B, No. 3.
B — 3: κατασκευάζω (Strong's #2680 — Verb — kataskeuazo — kat-ask-yoo-ad'-zo ) "to prepare, make ready" (kata, used intensively, skeue, "equipment"), is so translated in Matthew 11:10 ; Mark 1:2 ; Luke 1:17 ; 7:27 ; Hebrews 9:2 , RV (AV, "made"); Hebrews 9:6 , RV (AV, "were ... ordained"); 11:7; 1 Peter 3:20 . See BUILD , No. 5.
B — 4: παρασκευάζω (Strong's #3903 — Verb — paraskeuazo — par-ask-yoo-ad'-zo ) "to prepare, make ready" (para, "beside"), is used of making ready a meal, Acts 10:10 : in the Middle Voice, of "preparing" oneself for war, 1 Corinthians 14:8 , RV; in the Passive Voice, of "preparing" an offering for the needy, 2 Corinthians 9:2 , "hath been prepared," RV (AV, "ye was ready"); 2 Corinthians 9:3 , "ye may be prepared," RV (AV, "ye may be ready"). See READY.
B — 5: προετοιμάζω (Strong's #4282 — Verb — proetoimazo — pro-et-oy-mad'-zo ) "to prepare beforehand" (pro, "before," and No. 1), is used of good works which God "afore prepared," for fulfillment by believers, Ephesians 2:10 , RV (AV, "hath before ordained," marg., "prepared"); of "vessels of mercy," as "afore prepared" by God "unto glory," Romans 9:23 . See ORDAIN.
Notes: (1) Etymologically, the difference between hetoimazo and paraskeuazo, is that the former is connected with what is real (etumos) or ready, the latter with skeuos, an article ready to hand, an implement, vessel. (2) In Mark 14:15 , AV, hetoimos, "ready," is translated "prepared" (RV, "ready"). It is absent in some mss. See READY.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Preparation Day
Sixth day of week in which Jews prepared life's necessities to avoid work on the sabbath (compare Exodus 20:8-11 ; Matthew 12:1-14 ; John 9:14-16 ). Preparation of food, completing work, and spiritual purification were included. The Hebrew day began and ended at 6 p.m., so the day of preparation extended from 6 p.m. on Thursday until the beginning of the sabbath at 6 p.m. Friday.
The Feast of Passover was immediately followed by the holy convocation of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:1-7 ). No one worked on either of these holy days, so a day of preparation was set aside to prepare for the holiday period (John 19:14 ). John explicitly identified the day of preparation as the day of Jesus' execution (John 19:14 ,John 19:14,19:31 ,John 19:31,19:42 ) and placed the Last Supper before Passover (John 13:1 ). The Synoptic Gospels, however, dated the Last Supper on the day of Passover (Matthew 26:1 : 17 ; Mark 14:12 ; Luke 22:7 ). This apparent contradiction in dating may depend on whether the gospel writers were referring to the preparation day for the sabbath or to the preparation day for the Passover.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Preparation
The preparation of the heart is the great subject of enquiry in a work of this kind, and to which therefore I would particularly direct the attention. To prepare any person or thing may be easily understood in fitting and qualifying, in disposing or making ready; but in Scripture language the whole of the work, both in fitting and qualifying, in disposing or making ready, is of the Lord. So Solomon was commissioned to teach the church; and so every individual of the church is made sensible. (Proverbs 16:1) The word preparation seems to be taken from military maxims; and as soldiers are put in order under arms, and made ready for their service, so the Lord disposeth the frames and motions of his people's hearts for his service. And it is very blessed when a child of God feels this predisposing grace, and is conscious of being led on and carried through every duty. From the first awakenings of grace until grace is consummated in glory, the whole preparations of the heart, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord. And when the soul of a poor sinner hath been first prepared of the Lord, by regenerating, illuminating, convincing, and converting grace, and is thus brought into an union with Christ, all the subsequent acts of grace, in the goings forth of the soul upon the person, blood and righteousness of Christ, sweet preparing and disposing work of God the Holy Ghost. It is most blessed to know this, and to enjoy it. The daily access to the throne of God in Christ is by the Spirit. (Ephesians 2:18) It is that blessed, holy and eternal Spirit, in his own office-work, which prepares the soul, by calling off the mind from every object, and fixing the affections on the person of Jesus. It is he which awakens desire, creates a longing in the soul, points to the Lord Jesus as alone able to supply and satisfy the desires of the soul, and opens a communication between Christ and the soul. He that "searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God," searcheth both the heart, and prepareth the heart for enjoyment. He spreads the rich table, and prepares both the spiritual food and the spiritual appetite to receive and enjoy it. In a word, it is the Holy Ghost that is the great Author and Giver of all that life and joy and peace in believing, when the souls of the redeemed are made to abound "in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost." Hence, therefore, to him alone should believers be always looking for the preparations of the heart; for in this sweet office of the Spirit, God's Christ and the redeemed soul are brought together; and the Lord the Spirit doth more in one moment to prepare our unprepared hearts than, without his influence, could be accomplished in ten thousand years by all our labours in prayers and tears. How blessedly the church sings to this note of praise, for the preparing and disposing grace of the Spirit, when she cried out: "Or ever I was aware, my soul made me like the chariots of Amminadib!" (Song of Song of Solomon 6:12) As if she had said, before I had the least apprehension of the mercy, my Lord my Husband made me willing, by the swift manifestations of his love, and the awakenings of his grace in my heart, as rapid as the chariot wheels of a princely people.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Preparation
In the NT Epistles the word appears only in Ephesians 6:15 : ‘having shod your feet with the preparation (ἑτοιμασία) of the gospel of peace.’ The exhortation was suggested by the sandals (caligCE) of the Roman soldier. They were very heavy, thickly studded with hobnails, and strongly laced. The purpose which they served in the equipment of the Roman soldier is to be served by the ἑτοιμασία provided by the gospel of peace. The sandals gave the soldier firm footing, and fitted him for fighting or marching through any kind of country. The word has two meanings: in general, that of ‘preparation,’ ‘preparedness,’ or ‘readiness,’ and in particular, ‘firm foundation’ or ‘firm footing.’ Illustrations of the latter meaning are found in Psalms 89:14 (15) ‘Righteousness and judgement are the foundation of thy throne’ (RV_), also in Zechariah 5:11, Ezr (LXX_ 2 Es) ezr Ezra 2:68. The verb ‘to prepare’ (ἑτοιμάζειν) in the sense of ‘firmly fix’ or ‘establish’ is found in Psalms 24:2, ‘and established it upon the floods,’ also Psalms 99:4, Proverbs 3:19; Proverbs 3 :2 Samuel 5:12. In the NT it has the sense of ‘destined’ in Matthew 20:23 (‘for whom it hath been prepared of my Father’) Matthew 25:34; Matthew 25:41, 1 Corinthians 2:9, Hebrews 11:16. The common translation of ἑτοιμασία in Ephesians 6:15 is ‘preparation’ (EV_, Erasmus, Hodge, Eadie, etc.), but ‘foundation’ or ‘firm footing’ is strongly supported (Chrysostom, Bengel, Hatch). The weakness of the translation ‘preparation’ is that it does not indicate the kind of equipment which is referred to. It translates the word but not the idea. The more restricted meaning of ‘firm footing,’ with its suggestions of confidence or assurance, brings out more clearly what the gospel of peace provides. This ‘firm confidence’ is not only necessary for ‘standing’ in ‘the evil day,’ but for the general warfare of the Christian at all times.

Last Supper - ]'>[8] Now the Passover was slain late in the afternoon of the 14th Nisan, and some hours earlier leaven was put out of the houses, in Preparation for the ‘days of unleavened bread,’ which, strictly speaking, began with the eating of the lamb in the early hours of 15th Nisan. On a day called ‘the first day of Azuma’ Preparations were made for the Feast, according to Mt. it is permissible to place the commencement by the disciples of Preparations for a Passover which would be kept in circumstances they never anticipated. But this would not apply to all; and here may be found the explanation of the Preparations. In connexion with our present inquiry we note the Preparation of the Sabbath (Mark 15:42, Luke 23:54), and the Preparation of the Passover (John 19:14). John was one of the two disciples who were specially charged with the Paschal Preparations. ]'>[17] the following day, when Jesus was crucified, was the Preparation of the Passover (John 19:14). It may be added that the supposition of the disciples, that the Preparations for the feast were not complete (John 13:29), seems strange indeed if they were already keeping the feast. Preparation for the Passover was so important in the eyes of the Jews, that the day preceding had derived its appellation of paraskeuç from their scrupulous care; see Matthew 27:62. Friday, Nisan 14, was the official Preparation Day

Passover - Lastly, John 19:14, "the Preparation of the passover," is explained by Mark 15:42, "the Preparation, the day before the subbark" in the Passover week; the day of holy convocation, the 15th Nisan, not "before the Passover. " So John 19:31, "the Preparation for the sabbath" began the ninth hour of the sixth day of the week (Josephus, Matthew 27:62) calls the day after the crucifixion "the next day that followed the day of Preparation. " The phrase, Caspari thinks, implies that "the Preparation" was the day preceding not merely the Sabbath but also the first day of the Passover feast

A second important line of Preparation in the OT is in the doctrine of sacrifice. There is yet a third line of Preparation for this doctrine in the OT, viz. The proper prophetic Preparation, however, lay along a different line from the sacrificial

But even more than a baptism of Preparation it was a baptism of promise, promise both of the Kingdom and the King, being a promissory symbol of a perfect spiritual cleansing which the Messiah in person should bestow—‘I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance; but he that cometh after me … shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire’ (Matthew 3:11 ||)
