Vocabulary of the Greek NT

No ex. of this subst. has yet been found outside Biblical and ecclesiastical Greek, but cf. OGIS51.11 (iii/B.C.) ἐκτενῶς ἑαυτὸν συνεπιδιδοὺς εἰς τὸ συναύξεσθαι τὸ τεχνίτευμα, where τεχνίτευμα seems to be used in the same collective sense of a ";body"; of artificers, as ἱεράτευμα of a ";body"; of priests in 1 Peter 2:9 : in ib..5 Hort ad l. gives good reason for preferring the meaning ";act or office of priesthood."; His whole note on this group of words should be consulted.
