Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ὀπτάνομαι can be definitely removed from the list or so-called ";Biblical"; words (Grimm-Thayer, p. 695), since to its occurrences in the LXX (3 Ki. 8:8 [MT 2 Kings 8:8], Tobit 12:19 : cf. P Oxy XIII. p. 4) and the NT (Acts 1:3), we can add such early exx. as P Par 49.33 (B.C. 164–158) (= Witkowski, 2 p. 72) εἰ δὲ δι᾽ ἄλλο τι οὐκ ὀπτάνεταί μοι, P Tebt I. 24.5 (B.C. 117) καὶ μηδαμῶς ὀπτανομένων ὑπ ̣[ . . . Of a later date we have the great magical papyrus P Par 574.3033 (c. A.D. 300) ὁρκίζω σε τὸν ὀπτανθέντα τῷ Ὀ (= )σραὴλ ἐν στύλῳ φωτινῷ καὶ νεφέλῃ ἡμερινῇ, an interesting reference to Exodus 13:21 (see Deissmann LAE p. 252). On the implications involved in the use of ὀπτάνομαι in Acts 1:3 as denoting actual appearance as distinguished from vision cf. Knowling EGT ad l.
