Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 2399: ἰδιώτης

ἰδιώτης, ἰδιώτου, (ἴδιος), very common in Greek writings from Herodotus down; properly, a private person, opposed to a magistrate, ruler, king; but the noun has many other meanings also, each one of which is understood from its antithesis, as e. g. a common soldier, as opposed to a military officer; a writer of prose, as opposed to a poet. In the N. T. an unlearned, illiterate, man, opposed to the learned, the educated: Acts 4:13; as often in classical Greek, unskilled in any art: in eloquence (Isocrates, p. 43 a.), with the dative of respect, τῷ λόγῳ, 2 Corinthians 11:6 (A. V. rude in speech); a Christian who is not a prophet, 1 Corinthians 14:24; "destitute of the 'gift of tongues,'" 1 Corinthians 14:16, 23. (Cf. Trench, § lxxix.)

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance

From idios; a private person, i.e. (by implication) an ignoramus (compare "idiot") -- ignorant, rude, unlearned.
