Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For ὑπόδειγμα, ";example,"; as in James 5:10, cf. BGU III. 747ii. 13 (A.D. 139) ὑπόδιγμα ἀπειθίας, Priene 117.57 (i/B.C.) πολί ]τ ̣ου καλὸν ὑπόδειγμα [παραστήσας, OGIS 383.218 (mid. i/B.C.) νομίζω τε αὐτοὺς καλὸν ὑπόδειγμα μιμήσασθαι, Kaibel 435.2 καλῶν ὑπόδειγμα φιλάνδρων, and Aristeas 143 χάριν δὲ ὑποδείγματος, ";for the sake of illustration.";

The word is used of a ";specimen"; in BGU IV. 1141.43 (B.C. 14) πρὸς ὃ ἔδειξέ σοι ὑπόδειγμα and P Fay 122.16 (c. A.D. 100) ἔπεμψά σοι ὑποδείγματ ̣α ̣ μ ̣ε ̣γάλων τεσσαράκοντα, ";I sent you forty specimens of the large sort"; (Edd. : cf. Olsson, p. 180). On the use in common Greek or ὑπόδειγμα for παράδειγμα, see Rutherford NP p. 62.
