Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The sense unanimiter, and not merely ";together"; to which Hatch (Essays, p. 63 f.) would limit this word in the NT as in the Greek versions of the OT, is supported by P Tebt I. 40.6 (B.C. 117) (= Selections, p. 28) σαφέστερον μετειληφὼς τοὺς ἐκ τῆς κώμης ὁμοθυμαδὸν ἀντέχεσθαι τῆς σῆς σκέπης, ";having received certain information that the inhabitants of the village are with one accord claiming your protection"; (Edd.), cf. Syll 329 (=.3 742).13 (c.B.C. 85) ὁμοθυμαδὸν πάντων τῶν πολιτῶν ἐπιδεδωκότων ἑαυτοὺς εἰς τοὺ [ς π ]ερὶ τούτων ἀγῶνας, and ib. 732 (= .3 1104).28 (B.C. 37–6) ἡ σύνοδος ἀποδεξαμένη τὴν ἐκτένειαν καὶ φιλοτιμίαν αὐτοῦ ὁμοθυμαδὸν προεβάλετο τοὺς εἰσοίσοντας αὐτοῖς τὰς καθηκούσας τιμὰς Λεύκιον κτλ. : cf. Acts 15:25 ἔδοξεν ἡμῖν γενομένοις ὁμοθυμαδόν, —";the decree is not the manifesto of a cabal or faction, but a decree of the entire Church convened together"; (Hicks, CR i. p. 45). In P Par 63.93 (B.C. 164) (= P Petr III. p. 26) Mahaffy renders ὁμοθυμαδόν ";without exception."; Mayser (Gr. p. 459) points out that the use of the acc. neut. of adjectives to form adverbs is specially characteristic of the Κοινή.
