Vocabulary of the Greek NT

μονογενής is literally ";one of a kind,"; ";only,"; ";unique"; (unicus), not ";only-begotten,"; which would be μονογέννητος (unigenitus), and is common in the LXX in this sense (e.g. Judges 11:34, Psa. 21:21 [MT Psalms 22:21] , Psa. 24:16 [MT Psalms 25:16], Tobit 3:15). It is similarly used in the NT of ";only"; sons and daughters (Luke 7:12; Luke 8:42; Luke 9:38), and is so applied in a special sense to Christ in John 1:14; John 1:18; John 3:16; John 3:18, 1 John 4:9, where the emphasis is on the thought that, as the ";only";Son of God, He has no equal and is able fully to reveal the Father. We cannot enter here into the doctrinal aspects of the word, or into a discussion on the sources, Orphic or Gnostic, from which John is sometimes supposed to have drawn his use of it, but reference may be made to the art. by Kattenbusch ";Only Begotten";in Hastings’ DCG ii. p. 281 f. where the relative literature is given. A few exx. of the title from non-Biblical sources will, however, be of interest. In an imprecatory tablet from Carthage of iii/A.D., Wünsch AF p. 18.37, we find—ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεὸν. . . τὸν μονογενῆ τὸν ἐξ αὑτοῦ ἀναφανέντα, where the editor cites the great magical Paris papyrus, .1585 εἰσάκουσόν μου ὁ εἷς μονογενής. With this may be compared P Leid Vv. 34 (iii/iv A.D.) (= II. p. 21) εὐχαριστῶ σοι κύριε ὅ [τι ] μοι [ἔλυσεν ] τὸ ἅγιον πνεῦμα, τὸ μονογενές, τὸ ζωόν. See also Vett. Val. p. 11.32. An inscr. in memory of a certain Plutarchus, Kaibel 146.4 (iii/iv A.D.) describes him as μουνογενής περ ἐὼν καὶ πατέρεσσι φίλος. And the word is apparently used as a proper name in C. and B. i. p. 115, No. 17 (Hierapolis) Φλαβιανὸς ὁ καὶ Μονογονις εὐχαριστῶ τῇ θεῷ, where Ramsay thinks that we should probably read Μονογένης or Μηνογένης. For the true reading in John 1:18 it is hardly necessary to refer to Hort’s classical discussion in Two Dissertations, p. I ff.
