Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἄνωθεν ánōthen, an'-o-then; from G507; from above; by analogy, from the first; by implication, anew:—from above, again, from the beginning (very first), the top.
STRONGS NT 509: ἄνωθεν
ἄνωθεν (ἄνω), adverb;
a. from above, from a higher place: ἀπό ἄνωθεν (Winer's Grammar, § 50, 7 N. 1), Matthew 27:51 [Tdf. omits ἀπὸ]; Mark 15:38; ἐκ τῶν ἄνωθεν from the upper part, from the top, John 19:23. Often (also in Greek writings) used of things which come from heaven, or from God as dwelling in heaven: John 3:31; John 19:11; James 1:17; James 3:15, 17.
b. from the first: Luke 1:3; then, from the beginning on, from the very first: Acts 26:5. Hence,
c. anew, over again, indicating repetition (a use somewhat rare, but wrongly denied by many [Meyer among them; cf. his commentary on John and Galatians as below]): John 3:3, 7 ἄν. γεννηθῆναι, where others explain it from above, i. e. from heaven. But, according to this explanation, Nicodemus ought to have wondered how it was possible for anyone to be born from heaven; but this he did not say; [cf. Westcott, Commentary on John, p. 63]. Of the repetition of physical birth, we read in Artemidorus Daldianus, oneir. 1, 13 (14), p. 18 [i., p. 26, Reiff edition] (ἀνδρί) ἔτι τῷ ἔχοντι ἔγκυον γυναῖκα σημαίνει παῖδα αὐτῷ γεννήσεσθαι ὅμοιον κατὰ πάντα. οὕτω γὰρ ἄνωθεν αὐτὸς δόξειε γεννᾶσθαι; cf. Josephus, Antiquities 1, 18, 3 φιλίαν ἄνωθεν ποιεῖσθαι, where a little before stands προτέρα φιλία; add, Martyr. Polycarp, 1, 1; [also Socrates in Stobaeus, flor. cxxiv. 41, iv. 135, Meineke edition (iii. 438, Gaisf. edition); Harpocration, Lex., see under the words, ἀναδικάσασθαι, ἀναθέσθαι, ἀναποδιζόμενα, ἀνασύνταξις; Canon. apost. 46 (others 39, Coteler. patr. apost. works, i. 444); Pseudo-Basil, de bapt. 1, 2, 7 (iii. 1537); Origen in Joann. t. xx. c. 12 (works, iv. 322 c. De la Rue). See Abbot, Authorship of the Fourth Gospel, etc. (Boston 1880), p. 34f]. πάλιν ἄνωθεν, (on this combination of synonymous words cf. Kühner, § 534, 1; [Jelf, § 777, 1]; Grimm on Sap. xix. 5 (6)): Galatians 4:9 (again, since ye were in bondage once before).
