Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κατηχέω is used of legal ";instruction"; in P Strass I. 41.37 (A.D. 250) ἐμὲ οὐδέποτε κατήχησεν (";mich hat sie in keiner Weise überzeugt"; Ed.)—an advocate speaks. Cf. the use of περιηχέω in P Oxy VIII. 1119.7 (A.D. 254) αὐτοί τε εὐθέως περιηχηθέντες, ";and we immediately on receiving information of it"; (Ed.). With reference to the application of κατηχημένος to Apollos in Acts 18:25, Blass (Philology of the Gospels, p. 31) argues that this does not necessarily imply that Apollos was wholly dependent upon oral instruction. Even as early as A.D. 50 he may have been in possession in Egypt of a written Gospel, not improbably that of Mark—";let κατηχεῖσθαι be employed of hearing even in the passage of the Acts : the book will still be there.";
