Thayer's Expanded Definition

θυσία, θυσίας, (θύω) (from Aeschylus down), the Sept. for מִנְחָה an offering, and זֶבַח; a sacrifice, victim;

a. properly: Matthew 9:13 and Matthew 12:7, from Hosea 6:6; Mark 9:40 ((R G L Tr text brackets), see ἁλίζω); Ephesians 5:2; Hebrews 10:5, 28; plural, Mark 12:33; Luke 13:1; Hebrews 9:23; (Hebrews 10:1, 8 (here Rec. singular)); ἀνάγειν θυσίαν τίνι, Acts 7:41; ἀναφέρειν, Hebrews 7:27 (see ἀνάγω, and ἀναφέρω 2); (δοῦναι θυσίαν, Luke 2:24); προσφέρειν, Acts 7:42; Hebrews 5:1; Hebrews 8:3; 10:(),; (); passive Hebrews 9:9; διά τῆς θυσίας αὐτοῦ, by his sacrifice, i. e. by the sacrifice which he offered (not, by offering up himself; that would have been expressed by διά τῆς θυσίας τῆς ἑαυτοῦ, or διά τῆς ἑαυτοῦ θυσίας), Hebrews 9:26; ἐσθίειν τάς θυσίας, to eat the flesh left over from the victims sacrificed (viz. at the sacrificial feasts; cf. (Leviticus 7:15ff; Deuteronomy 12:7f, 17f, etc.) Winer's RWB under the word Opfermahlzeiten), 1 Corinthians 10:18.

b. in expressions involving a comparison: θυσίαι πνευματικαι (see πνευματικός, 3 a.), 1 Peter 2:5; θυσία, a free gift, which is likened to an offered sacrifice, Philippians 4:18; Hebrews 13:16 (τοιαύταις θυσίαις, i. e. with such things as substitutes for sacrifices God is well pleased); θυσία ζῶσα (see ζάω, II.

b. at the end), Romans 12:1; ἀναφέρειν θυσίαν αἰνέσεως, Hebrews 13:15 (if this meant, as it can mean, αἴνεσιν ὡς θυσίαν, the author would not have added, as he has, the explanation of the words; he must therefore be supposed to have reproduced the Hebrew phrase זִבְחֵי־תּודָה, and then defined this more exactly; Leviticus 7:3 (Leviticus 7:13) (cf. Leviticus 7:2 (Leviticus 7:12)); Psalm 106:22 (); see αἴνεσις); ἐπί τῇ θυσία ... τῆς πίστεως ὑμῶν (epexegetical genitive), in the work of exciting, nourishing, increasing, your faith, as if in providing a sacrifice to be offered to God (cf. ἐπί, p. 233b bottom), Philippians 2:17.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Hib I. 54.15 (c. B.C. 245) χρεία γάρ ἐστι ταῖς γυναιξὶν πρὸς τὴν θυσίαν, P Tebt I. 33.16 (B.C.112) (= Selections, P. 31) τ ̣. [. .] . [. . σ ]ταθησόμενα θύματα καὶ τῆς θ ̣υ ̣σ ̣ι ̣[α ]̓, BGU IV. 1198.12 (beginning of i/B.C.) ποιούμενοι ἁγνήας καὶ θυσίας, ib. 1201.8 (A.D. 2) πρὸς τὰς λιτουργείας καὶ θυσείας τῶν θεῶν, P Oxy IX, 1211.1 (ii/A.D.) τὰ πρὸς τὴν θυσίαν τοῦ ἱεοωτάτου Νείλου, P Giss I. 40ii. 21 (A.D. 212) κατάγειν θυσίας εἵνεκεν ταύρους. The libelli of the Decian persecution are regularly addressed—τοῖς ἐπὶ τῶν θυσιῶν ᾑρημένοις, ";to those chosen to superintend the sacrifices,"; or some similar phrase : see e.g. BGU I. 287.1 (A.D. 250) (= Selections, p. 115), and cf. the similar use of θυσιάζω in P Ryl II. 112 (a).10, (b).15, (c).14 (A.D. 250). From the inscrr. we may cite OG1S 59.15 (c. B.C. 188) ὅπως ἔχωσιν εἴς τε τὰς θυσίας καὶ τὸ ἄλειμμα δαπανᾶν, Syll 633.9 (ii/A.D.) ἐὰν δέ τις βιάσηται, ἀπρόσδεκτος ἡ θυσία παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ (cf. Philippians 4:18, Sirach 32:9).
