n.— «While the name is new, the sort of counseling done by nouthetic counselors is not. From biblical times onward, God’s people have counseled nouthetically. The word itself is biblical. The New Testament was written in Greek, from which the noun nouthesia (verb: noutheteo) comes. It is a term used largely by the apostle Paul which is sometimes translated “admonish, correct or instruct.” The term, which best describes biblical counseling, occurs in such passages as Romans 15:14.» —“What is Nouthetic Counseling?” by Jay Adams National Association of Nouthetic Counselors Mar. 24, 2006.
