parousia, basileia

The Greek New Testament uses the Greek term parousia (παρουσία, meaning "arrival", "coming", or "presence") twenty-four times, seventeen of them concerning Christ.[2] The word is also used six times of common people, such as when Paul talks of the arrival of Stephanas,[1Co.16:17] Titus[2Co. 7:6-72] and himself[Phil 1:26] [2:12] as parousia. The remaining twenty-fourth use of parousia refers to the "coming of the lawless one".[2Thes 2:9]
