Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Frequent in inscrr., in a sacrificial sense, e.g. Syll 553.14 (iii/ii B.C.) ἀναδεικνύωσι τῷ Διί (ταῦρον). Nearer to the sense of Acts 1:24 is the astrological phrase in Vettius Valens, p. 119.25 ἐὰν δὲ Ζεὺς μαρτυρήσῃ Κρόνῳ, νόμιμος γάμος ἀναδειχθήσεται ἢ καί τινας ἐξευγενίσουσιν. Note Syll 329.12 (B.C. 86) κέκρικεν ἀναδεῖξαι τὸν πρὸς Μιθραδάτην πόλεμον, which comes near our ";declare war"; : so in OGIS 441.49 ex suppl.).
