Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb, which is found ";in innumerable documents of manumission,"; see again Deissmann as cited s.v. ἐλευθερία. Cf. from the papyri P Oxy III. 494.16 (A.D. 156) ἐλευθερουμένων δούλων σωμάτων with reference to certain slaves whom the testator had set free κατ᾽ εὔνοιαν καὶ φιλοστοργίαν, ";in consequence of their goodwill and affection."; The verb appears to be always punctiliar in the NT : see Proleg, p. 149. For subst. ἐλευθέρωσις see BGU II. 388i .16 (ii/)ii A.D.) ἐπηνέχθ [ησ ]αν ταβέλλαι δύ [ο ] ἐλευθερώσεων τοῦ αὐτοῦ ὀνόματος διαφόροις χρόνοις (note dat. of point of time, as in Mark 6:21 τοῖς γενεσίοις). MGr ()λευτερώνω.
