Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Schürer’s suggestion (Theol. Abhandlungen Weiszäcker gewidmet, p. 39 ff.) that the Jezebel or Isabel of Revelation 2:20 was the local prophetess of the shrine of Sambethe the Chaldean Sibyl at Thyatira (cf. CIG3509), which led to Nestle’s highly doubtful identification of the names Isabel and Sibyl (Berl. Phil. Woch. 1904, p. 764 ff : has not been received with much favour (see e.g. Bousset and Moffatt ad l.). On the proposed etymologies of the Heb. name see EB2457, and for form Zezabel see Souter ad Revelation 2:20.
