Again, I have corrected the transliteration of the word in the subject line.
  I think it is time that we return to Jim's question below.  There are some classical references and 3 entries from the Oxyrhynchus Papyri.  Other than that, I only find the 5 instances in the Johannine literature.  I'm wondering which "several texts" are being referenced.

Which texts do you have in mind? Context is indispensible for 
determining meaning. The basic sense of the word is "one called 
alongside" as the noun is a compound of the preposition "para" and the 
verb "kalew".
