Vocabulary of the Greek NT

φωτισμός, like its verb (q.v.), is applied to spiritual illumination in 2Co. 4:4; 2Co. 4:6, and the corr. use of both verb and subst. in the OT (Psa. 18꞉8 [MT Psa. 19:8], Psa. 26꞉1 [MT Psa. 27:1]) makes it unnecessary with Reitzenstein (Hellen. Mysterien Religionen.2 p. 142 ff.) to look for an explanation of the metaphor in Hellenistic Mystery-Religion. See further Kennedy St. Paul and the Mystery Religions, p. 197 f. For the application to ";baptism"; in ecclesiastical usage, see Justin M. Apol. 61E ὁ φωτιζόμενος λούεται, 65C εὐχὰς ποιησάμενοι ὑπὲρ τοῦ φωτισθέντος.
