Hello friends and acquaintances!
Who did the voting in the following?
CEIROTONHSANTES DE AUTOIS PRESBUTEROUS KAT EKKLHSIAN PROSEUXAMENOI META NHSTEIWN PAREQENTO AUTOUS TW KURIW EIS ON PEPISTEUKEISAN
Why is CEIROTONHSANTES never considered to be an 'appointment' outside of scripture?
Could Luke simply have used CEIROTONHSANTES to mean, "in agreement"?
In other words...
"In agreement then all the mature of the called-out ones offered prayers along with fastings [and] they entrusted [Paul and Barnabas] to the Lord on whom they (the new believers) had believed."
The traditional rendering seems very difficult to me in view of the Westcott-Hort:
CEIROTONHSANTES DE AUTOIS KAT EKKLHSIAN PRESBUTEROUS PROSEUXAMENOI META NHSTEIWN PAREQENTO AUTOUS TW KURIW EIS ON PEPISTEUKEISAN
But, "In agreement then all of the called-out ones [who were] mature offered prayers ..." seems to flow pretty good.
Awaiting your reply,
p.s. Let's not go through the EKKLHESIA thread again. Let's just stick to CEIROTONHSANTES, okay?
