The relevance of certain Semiticisms in the Gothic New Testament
MetadataShow full item record
It is worth emphasizing that it is not the generic Greek language which exerts Hellenizing influence on Gothic, but rather the Greek New Testament specifically. This is demonstrated by the consideration of unGreek features of the Greek New Testament, such as Semiticisms. This approach also resolves an anomalous usage of Gothic jabai, generally unexplained in grammars and dictionaries, and highlights a departure from the sense of the Greek in one passage.
