Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This title, which is found in the Greek Bible only in 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Judges 1:9, passed into the magical papyri, e.g. P Lond I. 121.257 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 92) τῷ κυρίῳ μου τῷ ἀρχαγγέλῳ Μιχαήλ, and the Paris papyrus 574.1200 (iii/A.D.) ὁ κτίσας θεοὺς καὶ ἀρχαγγέλους. In addition to other references to the syncretic literature of the Imperial period Nägeli (p. 48 n.1) cites a gnostic inscription from Miletus CIG 2895 ἀρχάγγελον φυλάσσεται ἡ πόλις Μιλησίων. That the word was coined in Judaism to express a Jewish idea is of course obvious : it need only be mentioned that the prefix ἀρχ (ι)- (q. v.) could be attached to any word at will. On Grimm’s note upon the archangelic Heptad reference might be made to the Hibbert Lectures (1912) on Early Zoroastrianism, p. 241.
