Summary The thesis seeks to ascertain contextual meanings for several low-frequency lexemes in the Peshitta Gospels. It proposes that intratextual exegesis can benefit lexicography, especially in cases where meanings given in current lexicons are unclear in regards to the contexts upon which such meanings are based. An exegetical methodology is developed that defers the study of social backgrounds and instead prioritises narrative context for examining Gospel lexemes.
