Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this word in its original sense of ";announcement"; we may cite Syll 605.7 (iii/B.C.) καὶ τοῖς ἀποδημοῦσιν ἐπὶ τὰς σπονδοφορίας διατελεῖ μετ᾽ εὐνοίας ἀπογράφων τὴν ἐπαγγελίαν, ib. 260.9 (not after B.C. 199) οἱ ἡιρημένοι ὑπὸ Μαγνήτων περὶ τῆς ἐπαγγελίας τοῦ ἀγῶνος. In Michel 473.10 (ii/B.C.) καὶ αὐτὸς ἐπαγγελίαν ποιησάμενος ἐκ τῶν ἰδίων ἔδωκεν εἰς τὴν [κατασκευὴν τῆς ] στοᾶς, the word is seen with the meaning of ";promise,"; which apparently it always has in the NT : cf. further Priene 123.9 with reference to a magistrate who on taking office had promised a distribution of food—ἐβεβαίωσεν δὲ τὴν ἐπαγγελίαν παραστή [σ ]ας μὲν τοῖς ἐντεμενίοις θεοῖς τὴν θυσίαν. In PSI IV. 281.58 (ii/A.D.) κατὰ τὰ ̣ς ἐπανγελίας αὐτο ̣υ ̣̑, the ";promises"; are almost = ";threats"; : see the editor’s note.
