Vocabulary of the Greek NT

(for the spelling, see Deissmann BS p. 181 f.) ";military service"; : P Fay 91.11 (A.D. 99) Λυκίωι Βελλήνῳ Γεμέλλωι ἀπολυσ [ ]μωι ἀπὸ στρατείας, ";to Lucius Bellenus Gemellus discharged from military service,"; BGU I. 140.11 (time of Hadrian) ο [ ]ς οἱ γονεῖς αὐτῶν τῷ τῆς στρατείας ἀνείλα [ν ]το χρόνῳ, Gnomon (= BGU V. 1) 34 (c A.D. 150) τοῖς ἐν στρατείᾳ καὶ ἀπὸ στρατείας οὖσι σ ̣υνκεχώρηται διατίθεσθα [ι ] καὶ κατὰ Ῥωμαϊκὰς καὶ Ἑλληνικὰς διαθήκας, and ib. 62, and BGU II. 625.14 (beg. iii/A.D.), as read by Olsson Papyrusbriefe p. 114, ὔδατε (= οἴδατε) τὴν ἀνάγκην τῆν στρατείας. In the inscr. Preisigke 293.1 (Ptol.) ὁμοῦ τὴν τιμὴν τῆι θεῶν στρατείαι Ἄρηι σ ̣υνμάχωι, Διὶ Ὀλυμπίωι κτλ., στρατείαι would seem to have the meaning ";army"; like στρατιά (q.v.), and this meaning is also given by the editors to the word in P Oxy I. 71ii. 8 (A.D. 303) τῶν τε ἡμετέρων τέκνων ἐν στρατείᾳ ὄντων καὶ ἀπασχολ [ο ]υμένεν ἐπὶ τῆς ἀλλοδαπῆς, ";my sons are in the army and absent upon foreign service,"; but the translation ";on military service"; is equally possible.

For the metaph. use of στρατεία, as in 2 Corinthians 10:4, 1 Timothy 1:18, 4 Maccabees 9:28, cf. Epict. iii. 24. 34 στρατεία τίς ἐστιν ὁ βίος ἑκάστου καὶ αὕτη μακρὰ καὶ ποικίλη, and Maxim. Tyr. xix. 4 στρατηγὸν μὲν τὸν θεόν, στρατείαν δὲ τὴν ζωήν, ὁπλίτην δὲ τὸν ἄνθρωπον.
