Vocabulary of the Greek NT

. is of constant occurrence in the formula used by one person signing a deed or letter on behalf of another who cannot write—ἔγραψα ὑπέρ τινος ἀγραμμάτου, e.g. BGU I. 118 ii. 17, ib. 152.6 (both ii/A.D.) : cf. P Oxy II. 275.43 (A.D. 66) ( = Selections p. 58) Ζωίλος. . . ἔγραψα ὑπὲρ αὐτοῦ μὴ ἰδότος γράμματα. The great frequency of ἀγράμματος, invariably in this sense, suggests that the sneer in Acts 4:13 is intended to picture the Apostles as ";illiterate,"; and not merely ";unversed in the learning of the Jewish schools"; (Grimm). For the place which dictation had in the composition of the NT writings, see Milligan NT Documents, pp. 21 ff., 241 ff.
