Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this proper name (Acts 13:8) which cannot be regarded as an interpretation of Bar-Jesus, Blass (Comm. ad l.) proposes to read Ἑτοιμᾶς, ";Son of the Ready,"; in accordance with D *. But Burkitt (JTS iv. p. 127 ff.) has pointed out that ";no variation in spelling can make Bar-J’esus mean ‘ready’,"; and ingeniously conjectures that the reading should be ὁ λοιμός, ";the pestilent fellow,"; Bar-Jesus being then popularly interpreted as Bar Yeshu’ (בר ישוע).
