Chapter Summary

This chapter uses the question "Do you know Greek?" as a starting-point for an excursion in a somewhat different direction. There is one author in the New Testament to whom it has been put more than once, viz. the author of the Apocalypse. The phenomenon of the peculiar linguistic character of the "Book of Revelation" is well-known. In view of the special connections that exist between the Apocalypse and the Old Testament together with the so-called Pseudepigrapha it is obvious that one should take into account influence from the Hebrew. The language of the Apocalypse has been measured by the standards of Greek grammar and fell short. The survey of these texts brings to light that the expression μία γνώμη is not used in a great variety of ways, but practically always in one particular "context", viz. that of political thinking.

Keywords: μία γνώμη; Apocalypse; Book of Revelation; Greek grammar; Hebrew; John; New Testament; Old Testament
