Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";happen to be present,"; as in Acts 17:17 (cf. Field, Notes p. 125), may be illustrated from P Oxy I. 113.14 (ii/A.D.) χάριν ἔχω θεοῖς πᾶσιν γινώσκων [[ὅτι ]] ὅτι μετέλαβον παρατετευχότα Πλουτίωνα εἰς τὸν Ὀξυρυγχείτην, ";I thank all the gods to think that I came upon Plution in the Oxyrhynchite nome"; (Edd.), ib. 76.11 (A.D. 179) πρὸς καιρὸν παρατυγχάνων εἰς κώμην Νεμέρα ̓, ";happening at the present time to be at the village of Nemerae"; (Edd.). The idea of ";chance"; is not necessarily implied, and is often almost wholly wanting, see e.g. P Tebt II. 303.15 (A.D. 176–180) ὅπως παρατύχῃ εἰς τὸν. . . διαλογισμόν, ";that he may be present at the assize,"; ib. 276.15 (ii/iii A.D.) ἡ δὲ Ἀφροδίτ ]η παρατυγχάνουσα τῷ τοῦ [ Ἄρεως, ";Venus being in conjunction with Mars,"; P Lips I. 29.12 (A.D. 295) οὐ β [ού ]λ [ομ ]αι αὐτὴν παρατ [υ ]χ ̣[εῖ ]ν ̣ τοῖς ἡμετέροις [πράγμασιν, ";I do not wish that she should mix herself up in our affairs,"; and Preisigke 421.12 (iii/A.D.) (= Deissmann LAE p. 372) ἵν᾽ [ο ]ὖν εἰδῇς καὶ παρατύχῃς. . ., ";in order that you may know and be present (at a festal procession).";

For a new subst. παράτευξις = ";intercourse,"; ";personal relations,"; see the early Christian letter P Amh I. 3 (a)iii. 21 (between A.D. 264 and 282) (= Deissmann LAE p. 195) ̣ς ἡμᾶς ̣ [ὠφέλησε πα ]ράτευξιν πάπα, ";as he hath profited us by dealings with the Papas.";
