Luke 17:18

Save this stranger (ei mh o allogenh). The old word was allopulo ( Acts 10:28 ), but allogenh occurs in the LXX, Josephus, and inscriptions. Deissmann (Light from the Ancient East, p. 80) gives the inscription from the limestone block from the Temple of Israel in Jerusalem which uses this very word which may have been read by Jesus: Let no foreigner enter within the screen and enclosure surrounding the sanctuary (Mhqena allogenh eisporeuesqai ento tou peri to ieron trupaktou kai peribolou).
