Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A good example of the ingressive aorist is afforded by the new Agraphon as restored by the editors—P Oxy IV. 654.8 θαμ ]βηθεὶς βασιλεύσει κα [ὶ βασιλεύσας ἀναπα ]ήσεται , ";astonished he shall reach the Kingdom, and having reached the Kingdom he shall rest"; : see Proleg. p. 130. The verb is used to render the Persian title (see under βασιλεύς ) in P Saïd Khan 1 (a).1 (B.C. 88) βασιλεύοντος βασιλέων Αρσάκου : 1 (b).1 and 2.1 (B.C. 22–1) have the same formula. CPHerm 125ii. 3 (A.D. 260–8) διατρίβοντός σο [υ ] ἐπὶ τῆς βασιλευούση [ς Ῥώμης supplies an illustration for Revelation 18:7. For the relation of the Pauline conception of ";the saint as king"; (Romans 5:17, 2 Timothy 2:12) to the Greek philosophic ideal, see Ramsay Teaching, p. 157 ff.
