Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀνήρ anḗr, an'-ayr; a primary word (compare G444); a man (properly as an individual male):—fellow, husband, man, sir.
ἀνήρ, ἀνδρός, , a man, Latin vir. The meanings of this word in the N. T. differ in no respect from classic usage; for it is employed
1. with a reference to sex, and so to distinguish a man from a woman; either
a. as a male: Acts 8:12; Acts 17:12; 1 Timothy 2:12; or
b. as a husband: Matthew 1:16; Mark 10:2; John 4:16ff; Romans 7:2ff; 1 Corinthians 7:2ff; Galatians 4:27; 1 Timothy 3:2, 12; Titus 1:6, etc.; a betrothed or future husband: Matthew 1:19; Revelation 21:2, etc.
2. with a reference to age, and to distinguish an adult man from a boy: Matthew 14:21; Matthew 15:38 (where ἄνδρες, γυναῖκες and παιδία are discriminated): with the added notion also of intelligence and virtue: 1 Corinthians 13:11 (opposed to νήπιος); Ephesians 4:13; James 3:2 (in the last two passages τέλειος ἀνήρ).
3. universally, any male person, a man; so where τίς might have been used: Luke 8:41; Luke 9:38; Acts 6:11; Acts 10:5, etc. where ἀνήρ and τὶς are united: Luke 8:27; Acts 5:1; Acts 10:1. or ἀνήρ and ὅς he who, etc.: Romans 4:8; James 1:12. where mention is made of something usually done by men, not by women: Luke 22:63; Acts 5:36. where angels or other heavenly beings are said to have borne the forms of men: Luke 9:30; Luke 24:4; Acts 10:30. where it is so connected with an adjective as to give the adjective the force of a substantive: ἀνὴρ ἁμαρτωλός a sinner, Luke 5:8; λεπροὶ ἄνδρες, Luke 17:12; or is joined to appellatives: ἀνὴρ φονεύς, Acts 3:14; ἀν. προφήτης, Luke 24:19 (נָבִיא אִישׁ, Judges 6:8; [cf. Winers Grammar, 30; § 59, 1; Buttmann, 82 (72); other references under the word ἄνθρωπος, 4 a. at the end]) or to gentile names: ἄνδρες Νινευῖται, Matthew 12:41; ἀνὴρ Ἰουδαῖος, Acts 22:3; ἀνὴρ Αἰθίοψ, Acts 8:27; ἄνδ. Κύπριοι, Acts 11:20; especially in addresses of honor and respect [Winers Grammar, § 65, 5 d.; Buttmann, 82 (72)], Acts 1:11; Acts 2:14; Acts 13:16; Acts 17:22, etc.; even ἄνδρες ἀδελφοί, Acts 1:16; [Acts 2:29, 37; Acts 7:2]; Acts 13:26 [Acts 13:15], etc.
4. when persons of either sex are included, but named after the more important: Matthew 14:35; Acts 4:4; [Meyer seems inclined (see his commentary on Acts, the passage cited) to dispute even these examples; but others would refer several other instances (especially Luke 11:31; James 1:20) to the same entry].
