It is hard to see what the phrase μὴ φοβούμεναι μηδεμίαν πτόησιν is
trying to tell. (BDAG p. 895 PTOHSIS gives several glosses -
'terrifying' 'intimidation' 'fear' 'terror'.)
Most English translations do not help much, while some do smooth it over.
Is it possible understand this phrase something like 'fear of fear'?
