You say you don't think there is one, yet you give it yourself.
2 Timothy 2:11 (NA27)
11πιστὸς ὁ λόγος· εἰ γὰρ συναπεθάνομεν, καὶ συζήσομεν·
PISTOS hO LOGOS: EI GAR SUNAPEQANOMEN, KAI SUZHSOMEN.
… search for truth, hear truth,
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth,
defend the truth till death.
- Jan Hus

Subject: [B-Greek] PISTIS vs PISTOS
I don't believe there is a separate Greek word for "faithfulness" in the N.T.;
at least I don't see one.
That being said, it would seem to me that if Paul or any other N.T. author
intended for an existing word like PISTIS or PISTOS to be used to mean
faithfulness, he/they would have used PISTOS (faithful) instead of PISTIS
Would someone shed some light on this please?
