Since the turn of the century the conceptions of New Testament language have undergone a radical change. Until this time "Biblical" Greek was essentially an isolated language. Two extremes had been followed in the appraisal of the New Testament Greek. On the one hand, the Purist insisted on finding parallels for all constructions in classical Greek. This was an impossible task. On the other hand, we had the Hebraist who found Semitic influence where there was none. Two separate groups of evidence have entered to break down these false conceptions. These are the papyri and the inscriptions of the age.
