Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Fay 28.9 (A.D. 150–1) (= Selections, p. 82) ἀπογραφόμεθα τὸν γεννηθέντα ἡμεῖν . . . υἱόν : the same formula in BGU I. 111.12 (ii/A.D.). P Gen I. 19.14 (A.D. 148) μηδέ [π ]ω μου γεννηθ (είσης ), ib. 33.11 (A.D. 156) γεννηθέντα [τ ]ῷ ις ̄ (ἔτει ) Ἀντω [νίνου ] Καίσαρος , Syll 406.9 (A.D. 147) συνησθέντες μοι γεννηθέντος υἱοῦ (of civic congratulations sent to Antoninus), C. and B. ii. 590 (p. 656) Λούκιος γυν [αι ]κὶ ἰδίᾳ σεμνοτάτῃ , γεννηθείσῃ ἔτους ρ ̄ξ ̄α ̄ (= A.D. 77), BGU I. 132 ii. 5 (ii/A.D.) Ἥρων ἄλλος υἱὸς μη (τρὸς ) τῆς α (ὐτῆς ) γεννηθ (είς ). The confusion of forms from γίνομαι and forms from γεννάω , which gave a start to the mixing of γένημα and γἑννημα , produces in BGU I. 28.16 (A.D. 183) and 110.14 (A.D. 138–9) the form γενηθέντα : see Deissmann BS p. 184. With Mark 14:21 cf. OGIS 458.10 διὸ ἄν τις δικαίως ὑπολάβοι τοῦτο ἁτῶι ἀρχὴν τοῦ βίου καὶ τῆς ζωῆς γεγονέναι , ὅ ἐστιν πέρας καὶ ὅρος τοῦ μεταμέλεσθαι , ὅτι γεγέννηται . In MGr γεννῶ = ";beget,"; ";give birth to,"; and of birds ";lay"; (eggs). The derivative ἐπιγέννησις , P Gen I. 33.15 (A.D. 156) al., means a ";birth subsequent to"; (a census, etc.). For the noun γέννα , whence this verb is derived, cf. P Leid Wix. 47 (ii/iii A.D.) ὃ καλοῦσι Ὥρου γένναν , x. 8 ἔστιν γὰρ γέννα κόσμου .
