Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Syll 356.25 (B.C. 6—a letter of Augustus) αὐτὸς μὲν γὰρ ἐνέμεινεν ἀρνούμενο [ς ] ";persisted in his denial."; OGIS 484.31 (ii/A.D.) ἅπερ ἀρνουμένων αὐτῶν ἡδέως ἐπίστευον. For the aor. midd. (rare in Attic : cf. Veitch Grk Verbs s.v.) cf. BGU I. 195.22 (ii/A.D.) ὑπὲρ δὲ τοῦ μὴ ἀρνήσασθαι ἐφ᾽ ἑκάστῳ τοῦτον. . ., P Flor I. 61ii. 48 (A.D. 86–8) ἠρνήσατο οὗτος [τὴ ]ν κλη [ρ ]ονομίαν τοῦ πατρὸς καὶ ἐγὼ τὴν (these three words interlineated) τοῦ ἰδίου πατρός. See also Helbing Gr. p. 99, and Mayor Ep. of Jude, p. 72, where it is stated that ἀρνέομαι (denego) with acc. of a person (";to disown";) is unclassical, and seems to be confined to Christian literature. The verb is MGr.
