Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For εἰσάγω = ";bring in,"; without mention of place, as in Luke 2:27, Acts 7:45, see the legal usage in P Amh II. 33.14 (c. B.C. 157) ἤδη τῶν καθ᾽ ἡμᾶς εἰσαγομένων πυνθανόμεθα τὸν ἐνκαλούμενον Τεσενοῦφιν μετὰ συνηγόρων συνκαθίστασθαι, ";just as our side is already coming into court we hear that the defendant T. is pleading with the assistance of advocates"; (Edd.) : cf. also P Oxy II. 259.10 (A.D. 23) where a man who had been ";arrested"; for debt is described as τ ̣ο ̣̣ν εἰσηγμένον. In P Par 43.2 (B.C. 154) (= Witkowski.2, p. 79) συγγέγραμμαι τῆι Ἑσπέρου θυγατρί. μέλλω δὲ ἰσάγειν ἐν τῷ Μεσορὴ μηνί, the verb is used absolutely = ";marry";; similarly in P Grenf II. 78.3 (A.D. 307) εἰσαγόμην ἐμαυτῷ γυναῖκα, where the dropped augment may be noted. In P Tebt II. 285.6 (A.D. 239) οὔτε τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους. . . εἰς τὴν οἰκετείαν εἰσάγουσιν, ";nor can they introduce outsiders into the family,"; we have the construction with εἰς, as in Acts 9:8 etc. P Tebt I. 20.5 (B.C. 113) χαριεῖ σὺν σοὶ αὐτὸν εἰσαγαγών shows us the meaning ";introducing."; Εἰσάγω is also common = ";import"; contrasted with ἐξάγω, ";export,"; e.g. P Lond 929.5 (ii/iii A.D.) (= III. p. 41) Μέλας ἐξ (άγων) ἐλέου καμ (ήλους) γ ̄, Σώτας ἐξ (άγων) πυροῦ καμ (ήλους) δ ̄, Πόσις ι ̣̔̓σα ̣(γων) οἴνου κεράμ (ια) ι ̄β ̄, P Ryl II. 197.10, .14 (custom-house receipts—late ii/A.D.) ἐξάγων ὀρόβου ἐπὶ ὄνῳ ἑνὶ. . . . . εἰ (σάγων) ἐπὶ ὄνοις δυσὶ [ . . ] . [ . . ] . . ἕξ, ";exporting pulse on one donkey, importing six . . . on two donkeys."; See also BGU IV. 1207.11 (B.C. 28) σὺ οὖν κ ̣α ̣ι ̣, [Ἁραμώτης ] ἀνδραγαθεῖτε καὶ εἰσάγεσθε τ ̣[ιμὴν φ ]ακο ̣υ ̣̑ ὀλυρίω. For εἰσαγωγή it must be enough to cite P Tebt I. 41.26 (c. B.C. 119) αὐτ [οί ] τε ἀπαρενόχλητοι ὄντες δυν [ ]μεθα ἀντέχεσθαι τῆς εἰσαγωγῆς, ";we being undisturbed may be able to attend to the collection of the revenues"; (Edd.); for the office of εἰσαγωγεύς see Archiv iii. p. 23 ff.
