Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A good ex. of this adj. is afforded by a i/A.D. inscr. in nonour of a certain physician—ἰατρῶι Καισάρων καὶ ἰδίας λογικῆς ἐναργοῦς ἰατρικῆς κτίστηι ἐν βιβλίοις ρ ̄ν ̄ς ̄. (Syll 736.4 f.). With Romans 12:1 we may compare the usage in the hermetic writings where λογικὴ θυσία is contrasted with ceremonial offerings, cf. Reitzenstein Poimandres, p. 338.10 δέξαι λογικὰς θυσίας ἁγνὰς ἀπὸ ψυχῆς καὶ καρδίας πρός σε ἀνατεταμένης, and ib. p. 347.1, and see Lietzrnann in HZNT ad l. : also Epict. iii. I. 26 τὸ λογικὸν ἔχεις ἐξαίρετον · τοῦτο κόσμει καὶ καλλώπιζε, ";thy excellence lies in the rational part : this adorn and beautify"; (Sharp, p. 120). From the late Greek of the Pelagia legend (ed. Usener, p. 20) we have an admirable illustration of 1 Peter 2:2. A bishop meets Pelagia and tells her he is ";shepherd of Christ’s sheep."; She takes him literally, and he explains that he means τῶν λογικῶν προβάτων τοῦ Χριστοῦ, τοῦτ᾽ ἔστιν τῶν ἀνθρώπων. So Peter means metaphorical, not literal, ";pure milk"; : see s.v. ἄδολος. MGr λογικό, ";understanding,"; ";reason";; ἔρχομαι στὰ λο (γ)ικά μου, ";I become conscious of, learn of"; (Thumb Handbook, p. 338).
