Vocabulary of the Greek NT

H. Achelis (ZNTW i. p. 87 f.) finds a trace of early Christianity in the use of this word in an inscr. from the Greek islands edited by H. von Gärtringen CIGrIns I. 1, No. 675.6 (Rhodes) Δάφνας καὶ θεοῦ ἀρχιερεὺς. . . OHPOC (= [ἱε ]ρὸς, Kaibel) εὐαγγελιστής, but see, on the other hand, A. Dieterich (ib. p. 336 ff.) who reads ὁ ἥρως εὐαγγελιστής, and thinks that ";the chief priest of Daphne and the god"; is so described as the proclaimer of the oracular announcements. The word occurs in the Christian amulet P Oxy VIII. 1151.45 (v/A.D. ?) with reference to the evangelist John—τοῦ ἁγίου καὶ ἐνδόξου ἀποστόλου κ (αὶ) εὐαγγελιστοῦ κ (αὶ) θεολόγου Ἰωάννου : cf. CPR I. 30.4 (vi/A.D.) τοῦ ἁγίου Ἰωάννου τοῦ εὐλόγου καὶ εὐαγγελιστοῦ.
