Alternately titled The Influence of the Septuagint on the Vocabulary of the New Testament, Kennedy’s fascinating book explores the influence of language from the Old Testament to the New. Burrowing into the Hebrew and Greek translations, Kennedy demonstrates the connection between the earliest Christian writers, dependant on the Septuagint for a linguistic framework, and the language used to explain the new faith and complicated theological ideas unheard of at that time.
