Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The derived meaning ";purpose,"; ";plan,"; as in Acts 11:23, Ephesians 1:11, 2 Timothy 3:10 al., may be illustrated by P Tebt I. 27.81 (B.C. 113) ἔκαστα χωρῆσαι κατὰ τὴν ἡμετέραν πρόθεσιν, ";that everything should proceed according to the method prescribed by us"; (Edd.), Syll 929 (=.3 685).35 (B.C. 139) τῆς δὲ προθέσεως ἡμῶν μὴ τελειουμένης. In P Amh II. 148.12 (A.D. 487) we have ἑτέραν μοι ἐνδοῦναι πρόθε [σ ]ιν, ";to grant me a further period"; (Edd.), for the repayment of a loan. We may also note Arist. Rhet. xiii. 3. 3 where πρόθεσις and πίστις refer to the ";statement of the case"; and the ";proof"; respectively.

For a suggestion that the LXX phrase οἱ ἄρτοι τῆς προθέσεως, found in Mark 2:26 al. (cf. Hebrews 9:2 ἡ πρόθεσις τῶν ἄρτων), and indicating that the loaves were placed before God, may have been due to the reminiscence of a ceremonial custom of the time, see Deissmann BS p. 157.
