[ A-5,Verb,G1794, entulisso ]
"to wrap up, roll round or about," is translated "rolled up" in John 20:7, RV, of the cloth or "napkin" that had been wrapped around the head of the Lord before burial. Both the RV and the AV, "wrapped together," might suggest that this cloth had been "rolled" or wrapped up and put in a certain part of the tomb at the Lord's resurrection, whereas, as with the body wrappings, the head cloth was lying as it had been "rolled" round His head, an evidence, to those who looked into the tomb, of the fact of His resurrection without any disturbance of the wrappings either by friend or foe or when the change took place. It is followed by en, "in," and translated "wrapped" in Matthew 27:59, a meaning and construction which Moulton and Milligan illustrate from the papyri; in Luke 23:53 it is followed by the dative of the noun sindon, "linen cloth," used instrumentally. See WRAP.
