Vocabulary of the Greek NT

If we can trust the restoration in P Par 16.24 (B.C. 127) εἴπαμεν κα [τα ]κολουθεῖν τοῖς ἐξ ἀρχῆς ἐθισμοῖς καὶ μη [θὲν ἐνκαινί ]ζειν, this verb can no longer be regarded as ";exclusively bibl. and eccl."; (Grimm-Thayer). In the above passage, it will be noticed, it has the meaning of ";make no innovation"; as compared with ";initiate,"; ";inaugurate,"; in Hebrews 9:18; Hebrews 10:20. LS cite ἐγκαινιάζομαι from CIG IV. 8660.
