Greek parousiā presence, Parousia from parousa feminine present participle of pareinai to be present para- beside para–1 einai to be es- in Indo-European roots
American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
From Ancient Greek παρουσία (parousia, “presence").
In particular the annual Day of Atonement would be relied on, and that in proportion as the expected Parousia.
History has offered the authoritative commentary on the prophecy of the Parousia of Christ.
And how can we limit the day of the Lord entirely to the second Advent and the parousia?
This may be defined as the expectation of an imminent Parousia or overturning of the current state of affairs.
