Chapter Summary

In recent decades, the Semitic background of early Christianity is increasingly identified. It is not easy in all cases to determine whether there is a language and expression Semitism or not. The question cannot generally do, but must be decided by a detailed analysis of the existing material from case to case. The author explains in an interesting and non-trivial example. In the recently published fourth edition of his dictionary Walter Bauer under the words' ταπειѵόω "to the Old Testament Parlance means' located mortify, fast ". This meaning is distinguished van" humbly make, humbly be ". It is very clear that the root ταπειѵο- in early Christian usage has a different meaning from the secular Greek sense. The author has shown that in the expression ταπειѵοῠѵ τήѵ ψɳϰήѵ the no bible Semitism or language needs in the Apostolic Fathers, but that he was quite understandable for the Greeks.
