Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The Biblical history of ἀποκάλυψις along with the foregoing verb is discussed by Milligan Thess. p. 149 ff. Jerome’s assertion (Comm. in Galatians 1:12 ) that the word ";proprie Scripturarum est; a nullo sapientum saeculi apud Graecos usurpatum"; cannot, however, be substantiated, if only because of its occurrences in Plutarch, who, like the NT writers, drew from the common vocabulary of the time, see e.g. Mor. 70 F.
