Thomas used ⲓ̄ⲥ̄ or ⲓⲏ̄ⲥ̄ (the latter only in logion 13, 22, 90) in the Coptic text, in the Greek it's ⲓ̅ⲏ̅ⲥ̅ all over the place - clearly a later / corrupt version The three letters are transcribed from Hebrew, by taking their numerical value: יחר Check out Genesis 44:18, ...

Re: Disciple / follower / apostle etc in all of the NT - Synoptics

Having said that, it really looks like 'disciple' in Acts ff. is used in the sense of follower, and apostle in the sense of the disciple as we know it from the Synoptics

Re: The peculiar case of the two masters

Here are the parallels: Clement of Alexandria, Miscellanies 2.9.45.4-5: 4 But the beginning of this is to marvel at matters, as Plato says in the Theaetetus (= 155d, τὸ θαυμάζειν, οὐ γὰρ ἄλλη ἀρχὴ φιλοσοφίας ἢ αὕτη) and Matthias in the Traditions, exhorting, “Marvel at things present,” placing this...

Re: Pharisee / scribe / laywer etc in all of the NT - summary

But, to set the record straight indeed, allow me to have a retry: only prophets in Romans ff., no lawyers, scribes, Pharisees , Sadducees As Ken pointed out, Paul calls himself a Pharisee in Philippians 3.5. Paul also mentions a scribe in 1 Corinthians 1.20. And Zenas is called a lawyer in Titus 3....
