DMB:

So, why do I keep running into 'Sophicles' and most don't? I can assure you I am not too swift.

You don't need to run into it when you can detour around it.  If you're too slow, we can put you in training.  Wink

Ha. Well, a good portion of all my time was spent digging around in the Testament of Solomon. I was most intrigued by its close association with 'Beelzeboul' (synoptics), Solomon's Temple viewed negatively (Acts 6), and then the odd usage of cosmos-tyrants in Eph 6:12.

But returning to my poorly described 'point', a good way to understand the NT greek/concept usage is to move to the next generation's writings and how they looked at it (thus the need for Sophicles)

Agree--I would like to see the Greek Lexicon in production.

This still remains the only Byzantine era dictionary on offer. Recently an increasing number of Greek scholars have began emphasizing the need to consult later Byzantine as well as earlier Classical definitions when considering the possible meaning of a Greek word used in the NT:
