old: [Q. What is the difference between παλαιός and ἀρχαῖος? and how do they stand in relation to νεός and καινός?]
A. Παλαιός = more "the former," ἀρχαῖος = "ancient, antique." You could not say ἀρχαῖος ἄνθρωπος in the sense of παλαιός. Ἀεχαῖος is opposed to νέος but cannot be so absolutely to καινός. But ἀρχαῖος can be neither νέος nor καινός. It may be opposed to both: so may be παλαιός. It is contrasted with καινός, but it is not the νέος what now begins. In 2 Corinthians 5, ἀρχαῖα are things which have been of old, a long time; we have a new system or creation. So in Matthew 13:52: they are things καινὰ καὶ παλαιά, the old scribe knowledge, and other new things. (Bible Treasury 6:208)
