Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With this verbal adj. (1 Thessalonians 4:9) we may compare the Homeric αὐτοδίδακτος in Cagnat IV. 176 εἰμὶ μὲν ἐκ Παρίου Ὄρτυξ σοφὸς αὐτοδίδακτος. See Proleg. p. 221 f. on the varied meanings of verbals in—τος.

For the similarly formed Christian θεόγνωστος we can now cite a pagan parallel from P Oxy II. 237 vi. 29 (A.D. 186) ἀλλὰ σὺ ὁ κύριος τῇ θεογνώστῳ σου μνήμῃ καὶ τῇ ἀπλανήτᾳ προαιρέσει ἀνενεγκὼν τὴ [ν γραφεῖσ ]άν σοι ὑπὸ τοῦ στρατηγοῦ ἐπιστολήν, ";but your lordship exercising your divine memory and unerring judgement took into consideration the letter written to you by the strategus"; (Edd.)
