Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The ritual sense, which underlies this word in classical Greek, may perhaps still be latent in its two NT occurrences Galatians 3:3, Philippians 1:6 (cf. 2 Corinthians 8:6 B), but how completely the simple sense ";begin"; prevailed in late Greek may be seen from P Tebt I. 24.34 (B.C. 117) διαλαμβάνοντες εἰς ἀπραξίαν ἡμᾶς περιστήσειν ὁπότε δὴ ἐνάρξασθαι, ἀνεχώρησαν κτλ., ";supposing that they would bring me to a standstill at the commencement, they retired etc."; (Edd.) : cf..36 ἐναρχομένου τ [οῦ Με ]χείρ, ";at the beginning of Mecheir."; See also Vett. Val. p. 212.25 ἐὰν δέ πως καὶ ἕτερόν τινα ἐναρξάμενον πράγματος εὕρῃς κτλ.
