";shepherd,"; ";tend"; : cf. BGU III. 759.11 (A.D. 125) ἐπελθόντες μοι. . . ποιμαίνοντι θρέμματα Ἀνουβίωνος, P Ryl II. 114.9 (c.

Bauer (HZNT ad John 21:15) sees no difference between βόσκω and ποιμαίνω in John 21:15; John 21:17; John 21:16, but refers to Philo Quod det. pot. ins. sol. p. 263.27 ff. ed. Cohn for a difference between them. From the idea of ";pasturing,"; ";feeding,"; the verb passes readily into the idea of ";governing,"; ";guiding"; (Hort Ecclesia, p. 243) : cf. Revelation 2:27 with Swete’s note.
