Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Mystery
     the calling of the Gentiles into the Christian Church, so
     designated (Eph. 1:9, 10; 3:8-11; Col. 1:25-27); a truth
     undiscoverable except by revelation, long hid, now made
     manifest. The resurrection of the dead (1 Cor. 15:51), and other
     doctrines which need to be explained but which cannot be fully
     understood by finite intelligence (Matt. 13:11; Rom. 11:25; 1
     Cor. 13:2); the union between Christ and his people symbolized
     by the marriage union (Eph. 5:31, 32; comp. 6:19); the seven
     stars and the seven candlesticks (Rev. 1:20); and the woman
     clothed in scarlet (17:7), are also in this sense mysteries. The
     anti-Christian power working in his day is called by the apostle
     (2 Thess. 2:7) the "mystery of iniquity."
     

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  MYSTERY or MISTERY. This word is said to be derived from the French mestier 
  now written metier, a trade. In law it signifies a trade, art, or 
  occupation. 2 Inst. 668. 
       2. Masters frequently bind themselves in the indentures with their 
  apprentices to teach them their art, trade, and mystery. Vide 2 Hawk. c. 23, 
  s. 11.
