What does the Greek word musterion mean? Well, of course it means "mystery." At least that’s what you’d conclude by reading the majority of English translations. Actually, there’s nothing mysterious about a musterion. The word simply refers to something that cannot be known unless it is revealed, that is, a "secret." This is what was described in Ephesians 5:32 ("This is a great secret, but I am talking about Christ and the church") and in 1 Corinthians 15:51 ("Let me tell you a secret. Not all of us will die, but all of us will be changed….").

Linguists call the confusion of a Greek word’s root with its English counterpart "etymologizing"— an evil to be avoided like the plague. English speakers should, of course, know this already. There is no butter in buttermilk, no egg in eggplant, no worms (or wood) in wormwood, no pine (or apple) in a pineapple, no ham in hamburger.
