Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, which is confined to 1 Peter 2:17; 1 Peter 5:9 in the NT, occurs in the late P Giss I. 57.2 (vi/vii A.D.), P Oxy I. 158.2 (same date) παρακαλῶ τὴν ὑμετέραν λαμπρὰν γνησίαν ἀδελφότητα, ";I urge you, my true and illustrious brother."; From an earlier date may be quoted Ramsay C. and B., ii. p. 720, no. 655 (prob. iii/A.D.) εἰρήν [η ] πάσῃ τῇ ἀδελ [φότητ ]ι : the inscription is the dedication of a κοιμητήριον, which Ramsay notes as a Christian term appearing as early as A.D. 251. Ramsay’s remark, ";It is noteworthy that the collective ἀδελφότης had already been formed,"; betrays forgetfulness of 1 Pet ll.cc., as well as of occurrences in Dion Chrysostom and 1 and 4 Maccabees : see Grimm. Crönert adds Vettius Valens, whom Kroll dates under the Antonines—see his index s.v.
