Vocabulary of the Greek NT

μεμβράνα, a Grecized form of the Lat. membrana, ";parchment,"; said to be so called from Pergamum in Mysia, where it was first manufactured (see Thompson Greek and Latin Palaeography (Oxford, 1912), p. 28 ff.). In the NT the word is found only in 2 Timothy 4:13, where the reference is probably to parchment rolls of the OT Scriptures. Dibelius (HZNT ad l.) cites Theodosius III. p. 695 Schulze μεμβράνας τὰ εἱλητὰ κέκληκεν · οὕτω γὰρ Ῥωμαῖοι καλοῦσι τὰ δέρματα. ἐν εἱλητοῖς δὲ εἶχον πάλαι τὰς θείας γραφάς. οὕτω δὲ καὶ μἑχρι τοῦ παρόντος ἔχουσιν οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι.
