The alm of this thesis is the investigation of semantic loans found in the New Testament. The introductory part contains a survey of previous work--especially on the lexical relationship between the Septuagint and the New Testament-and a brief exposition of the theoretical principles which inform the thesis. Part Two, the body of the work, provides an annotated list of New Testament words which are used differently in secular Greek literature. A full linguistic analysis of these words includes a discussion of the types of semantic change represented in the New Testament and a detailed description of semantic borrowing from Hebrew and Aramaic. In conclusion the writer summarizes the results of the investigation and draws inferences concerning the character of New Testament Greek. The last part of the thesis is a supplement dealing with the terms used for the seat of the mental faculties. A classification of the syntagmatic relationships into which these terms enter ln the Septuagint, the New Testament and Epictetus is followed by an evaluation of Semitic influence on this semantic field.
