Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Wetstein ad Romans 3:25 cites Dion. Hal. Antt. Rom. vii. 37 ὁλοσχερῆ πάρεσιν οὐχ εὕροντο, τὴν δὲ εἰς χρόνον ἀναβολὴν ἔλαβον, in support of the meaning ";remission of punishment,"; and Lietzmann (HZNT ad l.) adds a reference to Xenophon Hipparch. vii. 10. To these two exx. of this important NT ἅπ. εἰρ. Deissmann (BS p. 266) now supplies a possible third. It occurs in BGU II. 624.21 (time of Diocletian), where παρέσει implies (temporary) ";remission of debt,"; cf. .19 ἱερᾶς μὴ ἀμέλει ὀφιλῆ [ς. If this is correct, it may be taken as supporting Field’s contention (Notes, p. 153 f.) that while both ἄφεσις and πάρεσις imply remission, the former is more commonly used of the remission or forgiveness of a sin, the latter of a debt : but see s.v. ἄφεσις.
