Vocabulary of the Greek NT

γέννησις (in Matthew 1:16 LW, Luke 1:14 one or two good MSS, incl. 33) may be quoted from P Leid Wxxiii. 2 (ii/iii A.D.), where a magic book περιέχει γέννησιν πνεύματος , πυρὸς καὶ σκότος (sc. -ους ), and Syll 737.130 (ii/A.D.) σπονδὴν ἀξίαν τῆς τάξεως , γάμων , γεννήσεως , Χοῶν , ἐφηβείας κτλ . : Dittenberger observes that boys were brought to the Χόες festival before their coming of age, so that the order of these last three items is one of time.
