Does the word “kabbalah” occur in N. T.?

Is “kabbalah” a Hebrew word?

If so, what is the Greek word?

So about such a basic question!



Kabbalah is a Hebrew word that means “receiving” or “tradition.” It does not appear in the New Testament; the only words of Semitic origin in the NT are the occasional places where a place name or important phrase is rendered in transliterated Aramaic (i.e. Aramaic in Greek letters in the original, in Latin letters in English translation), e.g. “Eli, eli, lama sabacthani.”





Would there be a Greek word that could be used for “receiving” or “tradition”?
