1: γνωστός
(Strong's #1110 — Adjective — gnostos — gnoce-tos' )

an adjective, signifying "known" (from ginosko, "to know"), is used (a) as an adjective, most usually translated "known," whether of facts, e.g., Acts 1:19 ; 2:14 ; 4:10 ; or persons, John 18:15,16 ; it denotes "notable" in Acts 4:16 , of a miracle; (b) as a noun, "acquaintance," Luke 2:44 ; 23:49 . See ACQUAINTANCE , KNOWN.

2: ἐπίσημος
(Strong's #1978 — Adjective — episemos — ep-is'-ay-mos )

primarily meant "bearing a mark," e.g., of money, "stamped, coined," (from epi, "upon," and sema, "a mark, a sign;" cp. semaino, "to give a sign, signify, indicate," and semeioo, "to note;" see below); it is used in the NT, metaphorically, (a) in a good sense, Romans 16:7 , "of note, illustrious," said of Andronicus and Junias; (b) in a bad sense, Matthew 27:16 , "notable," of the prisoner Barabbas. In the Sept., Genesis 30:42 ; Esther 5:4 ; 8:13 , toward the end of the verse, "a distinct (day)".

3: ἐπιφανής
(Strong's #2016 — Adjective — epiphanes — ep-if-an-ace' )

"illustrious, renowned, notable" (akin to epiphaino, "to show forth, appear;" Eng., "epiphany"), is translated "notable" in Acts 2:20 , of the great Day of the Lord. The appropriateness of this word (compared with Nos. 1 and 2) to that future occasion is obvious.
