2015 epipháneia (from 1909 /epí, "on, fitting," which intensifies 5316 /phaínō, "show forth, appear") – properly, a fitting manifestation (literally, "an epiphany").

[2015 (epipháneia) is the root of the English term, "epiphany."]

2015 (epipháneia) literally suggests an appearing that builds on (Gk epi) on the characteristics of a particular situation. Accordingly, 2015 /epipháneia ("conspicuous appearing") emphasizes the fitting impact Christ's visible appearance will have on the entire world – i.e. all who see it (saved and unsaved). In the NT, 2015 (epipháneia) occurs six times – always used of Christ's coming (once of His first coming, 2 Tim 1:10).
