Vocabulary of the Greek NT

in Biblical Greek is confined to Acts 18:3, but for the verb σκηνοποιέω see Sm Isaiah 13:20; Isaiah 22:15, and for the subst. σκηνοποιΐα see Aq Deuteronomy 31:10. In view of these passages there seems to be no reason to question the ordinary rendering ";tentmaker"; in Ac l.c., but for explanations as to how the alternatives ";landscape-painter"; and ";shoemaker"; may have arisen, see notes by Ramsay and Nestle in Exp T viii. pp. 109, 153 f., 286.
