Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The classical phrase τὰ νῦν = ";now,"; which in the NT is confined to Acts, is found in P Oxy IV. 743.30 (B.C. 2) where the writer states with reference to a certain Damas—καὶ τὰ νῦν ἐπειπέπομφα αὐτὸν πάντα συνλέξαι, ";and now I have dispatched him to collect them all (i.e. rents)"; (Edd.) : cf. BGU IV. 1114.17 (B.C. 4) τανῦν συγχωρεῖ ὁ Ἵμερος κεκομίσθαι κτλ., P Oxy IV. 811 (c. A.D. 1) καὶ τὰ νῦν εἴ σοι φαί [νε ]ται γράψον αὐτῷ. In PSI VI. 609.10 (iii/B.C.) τό τε παρε ̣λον (l. παρελθὸν ?) ἐχφόριον καὶ τ ̣ο ̣, νῦν ἑτοιμάσας, τὸ νῦν is probably equivalent to τὸ τούτου τοῦ ἔτους ἐχφόριον : see the editor’s note. The formula ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν, ";henceforth,"; as in Luke 1:48 al., 2 Corinthians 5:16, is common, e.g. P Oxy III. 479.6 (A.D. 157) βούλομαι ἀναγραφῆναι ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν ἐπὶ τοῦ ὑπάρχοντός μοι μέρους οἰκίας. . . Ὧρον, ";I wish that Horus should henceforth be registered at the house of which I own part"; (Edd.); other exx. in Deissmann BS p. 253. For μέχρι τοῦ νῦν cf. BGU II. 667.8 (A.D. 221–2) κατὰ [τὴ ]ν ἐξ ἀρχῆς καὶ μεχρὶ τοῦ νῦν συνήθι ̣α ̣ν ̣. See also the emphatic νῦν ἐπὶ τοῦ παρόντος, ";now at the present,"; in P Oxy III. 482.3 (A.D. 109).
