Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Like διδάσκαλος, διδάσκω is by no means so common as we might have expected; but from the instances we have noted we may select the following—P Lond 43.6 (ii/B.C.) (= I. p. 48), where a mother congratulates her son on having finished his education and being now in a position to earn his livelihood as a teacher—νῦγ γε παραγενόμενος εἰς τὴν πόλιν διδάξεις. . . τὰ παιδάρια καὶ ἕξεις ἐφόδιον εἰς τὸ γῆρας, P. Oxy I. 40.8 (ii/iii A.D.), where a doctor practising mummification is asked—δίδαξον τ [ὸ κατα ]τῆκον, ";tell me what is the solvent"; (Edd.), P Strass I. 41.8 (A.D. 250) π ̣ερὶ δὲ οὗ δικάζομαι, διὰ βραχέων σε διδάξ ̣ω, CP Herm 23ii. 5 (a law report) ἡμεῖς ἃ ἐδειδά [χ ]θ [η ]μεν ὑπὸ τῆς λα [μπρ. . .] ταῦτά σοι παρεθέμεθα, and ib. 25ii. 5 ἵν ̣α ̣ πάλιν σε διδάξωμεν · εἰ οὖν σοι δοκ ̣[εῖ ] ἀκοῦσαι τ [ . . .
