WORDS OF CURRENT INTEREST

[The words in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly designated to be read in Christian Science churches on February 7, 1965.]

Parcel of ground (John 4:5)

The single Greek word represented by this phrase is chorion, meaning literally "a place"; but often an enclosed piece of land; a field. As the word "parcel" is used in English with regard to land, it is described as a continuous tract or plot of land in one possession, no part of which is separated from the rest by intervening land in other possession: a tract or plot of land whose boundaries are readily ascertainable by natural or artificial monuments or markers.
