Vocabulary of the Greek NT

καθέδρα is used instead of βῆμα in Ev. Petr. 3, perhaps, as Swete (ad l.) suggests, because of its Jewish associations Psalms 106:32 [MT Psalms 107:32], Matthew 23:2). From the Κοινή we may cite BGU III. 717.14 (A.D. 149) κόφιν [ος ], καθέδρα, μυροθήκη, πάντα ξύλινα, and the astrological P Ryl II. 63.10 (iii/A.D.) Σκορπείου καθέδρα, where the word is used = ";the posterior."; For the diminutive καθεδράριον, ";stool,"; cf. P Oxy VI. 963 (ii/iii A.D.) χάριν δέ σοι οἶδα, μῆτερ, ἐπὶ τῇ σπουδῇ τοῦ καθεδραρίου, ἐκομισάμην γὰρ αὐτό. Καθέδρα occurs with reference to the sophistical chair occupied by Nicagoras in mid. iii/A.D. in Syll 382.2 instead of the usual θρόνος (cf. Philostratus Vit. Soph. 618 τὸν Ἀθήνησι τῶν σοφιστῶν θρόνον κατασχών, of Nicagoras). The holder of this chair seems to have ranked above the other professors, cf. Walden Universities of Ancient Greece, p. 94.
