The following contrast doesn’t need much comment does it?!
Ἀρχὴ τοῦ εὐαγγελίου Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ υἱοῦ θεοῦ.
The beginning of the proclamation of the good news about Jesus Christ—Son of God (Mark 1:1).
Inscr. Priene, 105, 40, a calendar inscription, 9 BC, Priene, Asia Minor:
It seemed good to the Greeks of Asia, in the opinion of the high priest Apollonius of Menophilus Azanitus: “Since Providence, which has ordered all things and is deeply interested in our life, has set in most perfect order by giving us Augustus [τὸν Σεβαστόν], whom she filled with virtue that he might benefit humankind, sending him as a savior [σωτῆρα], both for us and for our descendants, that he might end war and arrange all things, and since he, Caesar, by his appearance [ἐπιφανεῖς] (excelled even our anticipations), surpassing all previous benefactors, and not even leaving to posterity any hope of surpassing what he has done, and since the birthday of the god Augustus was the beginning of the good tidings for the world that came by reason of him [ἦρξεν δὲ τῶι κόσμωι τῶν δι’ αὐτὸν εὐανγελίων ἡ γενέθλιος ἡμέρα τοῦ θεοῦ],” which Asia resolved in Smyrna.
The inscription is cited here from Craig Evans, “Mark’s Incipit and the Priene Calendar Inscription: From Jewish Gospel to Greco-Roman Gospel,” Journal of Greco-Roman Christianity and Judaism, 1 (2000): 68–69, who footnotes his sources as: M. E. Boring, K. Berger, and C. Colpe, Hellenistic Commentary to the New Testament (Nashville: Abingdon, 1995). The relevant part of the Priene Inscription is cited along with Mark 1:1 on p. 169. For the Greek text of the whole inscription, see W. Dittenberger (ed.), Orientis Graecae Inscriptiones Selectae (2 vols., Leipzig: S. Hirzel, 1903-5; repr. Hildesheim: Olms, 1960) 2.48-60 [ = OGIS 458]. [My copy of the Hellenistic Commentary is in my study at the seminary, so I can access it directly this evening. Also there is my copy of Deissman, Light from the Ancient East, which has the text on pp. 366–67, and a photograph of the inscription, fig. 71 (facing 367) which is legible (if you have good eyes!).
