phthano

ἔφθασεν [2 verses](3rd sg aor ind act) "Come" is from phthanô, which means to "come or do first," "to act before others," "to be beforehand," "overtake," "outstrip," "arrive first," "make haste," as a participle, to express previous action or happening, with negative, "no sooner had we come," to express immediate futurity, "will soon (or inevitably)."  - "Come" is a Greek verb that actually means "to come or do first." It has the sense of overtaking someone or beating them in a race. This is the only time Christ uses this word. This is no the typical word translated as "come" in the NT. In English, we would say "overtook you" or, since a preposition is used, "caught up to you."
