Notes and quotes.

§ This passage appears to have much thematically in common with Numbers 11.24-30, the story of Eldad and Modad.

§ Paul in 1 Corinthians 12.3:

Διο γνωριζω υμιν οτι ουδεις εν πνευματι θεου λαλων λεγει· Αναθεμα Ιησους, και ουδεις δυναται ειπειν, Κυριος Ιησους, ει μη εν πνευματι αγιω.

On which account I make known to you that no one speaking in the spirit of God says: Jesus be cursed, and no one can say: Jesus is Lord, except in the holy spirit.

§ Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 1224, fragment 2 recto, column 2, lines 3-6:

Ο γαρ μη ων [κατα υμ]ων υπερ υμων εστιν. [ο σημερον ω]ν μακραν αυριον [εγγυς υμων γ]ενησεται].

For he who is not [against y]ou is for you. [He who today i]s far away tomorrow [will] be [close at hand to you].
