Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A very striking parallel to the healing of the blind man in John 9:6 is afforded by an inscription probably from the temple of Asclepios at Rome after A.D. 138 : Syll 807.15 ff. Οὐαλερίῳ Ἄπρῳ στρατιώτῃ τυφλῷ ἐχρημάτισεν ὁ θεὸς ἐλθεῖν καὶ λαβεῖν αἷμα ἐξ ἀλεκτρυῶνος λευκοῦ μετὰ μέλιτος καὶ κολλυρίου συντρῖψαι καὶ ἐπὶ τρεῖς ἡμέρας ἐπιχρεῖσαι ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς · καὶ ἀνέβλεψεν καὶ ἐλήλυθεν καὶ ηὐχαρίστησεν δημοσίᾳ τῷ θεῷ, ";Valerius Aper, a blind soldier, was warned of the god to come and take the blood of a white cock along with honey, and to mix together an eye-salve, and for three days to anoint the eyes with it. And he received his sight, and came, and gave thanks publicly to the god."; (For the tenses here note an exact parallel in James 1:24, and cf. Proleg. p. 144 n.1.) See also P Leid X vii. 36 (iii/iv A.D.) ὅμοιον γὰρ εἶδος ἔχει τὸ ἐπιχρισθὲν ἢ γραφέν, which the editor explains ";aes totum illinitum, aut literae, figuraeve in eo scalptae eamdem auri speciem offerunt.";
