STRONGS NT 3805: παθητός

παθητός, παθητη, παθητον (πάσχω, παθεῖν);

1. passible (Latinpatibilis, Cicero, de nat. deor. 3, 12, 29), endued with capacity of suffering, capable of feeling; often in Plutarch, as παθητον σῶμα.

2. subject to the necessity of suffering, destined to suffer (Vulg.passibilis): Acts 26:23 (with the thought here respecting Christ as παθητός compare the similar language of Justin Martyr, dialog contra Trypho, chapters 36, 39, 52, 68, 76, 89); cf. Winers Grammar, 97 (92); (Buttmann, 42 (37)); (so in ecclesiastical writings also, cf. Otto's Justin, Greek index under the word; Christ is said to be παθητός and ἀπαθής in Ignatius ad Eph. 7, 2 [ET]; ad Polycarp, 3, 2 [ET]).


From the same as pathema; liable (i.e. Doomed) to experience pain -- suffer.
