Why does the New Testament have so many semicolons?


The Old Testament doesn't contain as many semicolons as the the New Testament does. I believe (don't know for certain) the New Testament was written under the influence of Plato and Aristotle, hence the reason for so many poetic/aphoristic passages oftentimes creating "split thoughts" (reason for excessive use of semicolons) ...never looked into this before...don't know...what's your take?
