Vetting Status: high
[Thus] the wheel is called. So just as from a high mountain, when out of the Savior's mouth these words were uttered, they rolled over the inhabited world and ran across all of it like a wheel; and all were baptized throughout the nations and cities.[1]
Therefore Galilee is called "revolving" in the Greek language.[2]
Greek Original:
Γελγέλ: ὁ τροχὸς ὀνομάζεται. καθάπερ οὖν ἐξ ὄρους ὑψηλοῦ τοῦ σωτηρίου στόματος προενεχθέντα ταῦτα τὰ ῥήματα δίκην τροχοῦ κατὰ τὴν οἰκουμένην ἐκυλίσθη καὶ πᾶσαν ἐπέδραμε: καὶ ἐβαπτίσθησαν πάντες κατὰ ἔθνη καὶ πόλεις. διὸ καὶ Γαλιλαία κατακυλιστὴ λέγεται τῇ Ἑλλάδι γλώσσῃ.
The headword, transliterated from Hebrew, occurs at Ezechiel 10.13 LXX; in Hebrew הגלגל. The Hebrew root means "to roll".
[1] For this material see fr. 151 of Apollinaris' Commentary on Matthew (specifically on 28:16, where Galilee is mentioned).
[2] So already gamma 36.
