Featured Term (selected at random):
A Greek term used by St. Paul in the general sense of "filling up." It means the sum total of the blessings brought to the world by Christ (Romans 15:29; Ephesians 1:23; 3:19). Also applied to the fullness of divinity in Christ (Colossians 1:19), and the Church as the plentitude or complement of Christ (Ephesians 4:13). (Etym. Greek pler_ma, fullness.)
