HELPS word-Studies

4804 syzētētḗs (from 4862 /sýn, "identified with, together" and 2212 /zētéō, "seek") – properly, "a joint-seeker," referring to a debater who delves into philosophical and religious matters, i.e. fiercely dialogues with others.

4804 /syzētētḗs ("ostentatious debater") is only used in 1 Cor 1:20 of someone who "sounds off" to look important ("impressive") – especially on moot subjects and without objective basis.

[In biblical times, the Jews had "rabbinical houses" (academic centers) devoted to "religious disputation."]
