Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, which is found in the NT only in 1 Timothy 2:10, where it is practically equivalent to εὐσέβεια (ver. 2), came early to be used as a quasi-technical term for the worship of the only true God, and hence was adopted as an ecclesiastical title in Christian circles, e.g. P Amh II. 145.5 (iv/v A.D.) where Apa Johannes writes to Paul—βούλο ]μαι μὲν καταξιωθῆναι ἀεὶ γράφειν [τῇ σῇ ] θεοσεβείᾳ κτλ., ";though I wish to be found worthy of writing continually to your holiness,"; etc. (Edd.), P Meyer 24.3 (vi/A.D.) καταξιώσῃ οὖν ἡ σὴ θεοσέβεια εὔξασθαι ὑπὲρ ἐμοῦ, and P Giss I. 55.8 (vi/A.D.) with reference to a Bishop, etc. : see also Ramsay Luke, p. 384.
