Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With Matthew 27:53, the only occurrence of this word in the NT, may be compared the heading of a magic spell in P Leid Wvii. 14 (ii/iii A.D.) ἔγερσις σώματος νεκροῦ. Nägeli (p. 49) refers to a use of the word in the same sense in Apollod. II. § 124 Wagn. See also Aristeas 160 where τὴν ἔγερσιν is contrasted with ὅταν εἰς ὕπνον ἔρχωνται.
