International Standard Bible EncyclopediaAPPEARANCE
a-per'-ans (mar'eh; chiefly used of the mystic and supernatural visions of Ezekiel and Daniel): A semblance, as of lightning, wheels, sapphire stone (Ezekiel 1:14, 16, 26); Gabriel's overpowering revelation (Daniel 8:15; see also Daniel 10:6, 18). In the New Testament refers exclusively, through three Greek words, prosopon, "sight," "countenance," to "outward appearance" (2 Corinthians 10:7 the King James Version); and its possibly deceptive nature: opsis, "Judge not according to appearance." (John 7:24); "them that glory in appearance." (2 Corinthians 5:12; compare 1 Samuel 16:7). See also 1 Thessalonians 2:12, the English Revised Version, margin (eidos = "sight").
