Vocabulary of the Greek NT

We have no citation which throws any light on the much disputed meaning of ἐντὸς ὑμῶν in Luke 17:21, but it may be noted that the same phrase occurs in a similar connexion in the second of the new sayings of Jesus, P Oxy IV. 654.16, ἡ βασ [ιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν ] ἐντὸς ὑμῶν [ ]στι [καὶ ὅστις ἂν ἑαυτὸν ] γνῷ ταύτην εὑρή [σει. . ., where the context favours the translation ";within you"; : for a different restoration of the latter part [καὶ ὃς ἐὰν τὰ ἐντὸς ὑμῶν ] γνῷ, see Deissmann LAE p. 438. The word is used of time in such passages as P Oxy IV. 724.11 (A.D. 155) ἐὰν δὲ ἐντὸς τοῦ χ [ρ ]όνου αὐτὸν ἀπαρτίσῃς, ";if you make him (the pupil) perfect within the period,"; in a contract of apprenticeship, and ib. X. 1278.28 (A.D. 214) ἐντὸς τοῦ προκειμένου αὐτοῦ χρόνου, and of place in P Ryl II. 161.8 (A.D. 71) ἐντὸς περιβό [λου ἱε ]ροῦ θεοῦ Σοκνοπαίου, ib. 157.7 (A.D. 135) ἐντὸς τείχους τοῦ κτήματος and P Oxy VIII. 1128.14 (A.D. 173) τὸ συμπόσιον καὶ τὴν ἐντὸς αὐτοῦ κέλλαν, ";a dining-room and the storechamber within it"; : see also the famous temple inscr. cited s.v. ἀλλογενής. In P Oxy X. 1274.18 (iii/A.D.) a minor is described—ἔτι ὄντος ἐντὸς τοῦ Λαιτωρίου νόμου, ";being still subject to the Laetorian law";—a law protecting persons under the age of twenty-five from fraud : see the editors’ note, where reference is made to BGU II. 378.21 (ii/iii A.D.) and 611 i. 6 (i/A.D.). In the medical receipt P Oxy VIII. 1088.33 (early i/A.D.) the remedy to stop nose-bleeding is—μάνναν φύρασον χυλῶι πράσωι καὶ ἐνάλιψον τὸν χυλὸν ἐνδόθεν, ";mix frankincense with onion-juice and apply the juice inside"; (Ed.).
