HELPS Word-studies

1921 epiginṓskō (from 1909 /epí, "on, fitting" which intensifies 1097 /ginṓskō, "know through personal relationship") – properly, apt, experiential knowing, through direct relationship. This knowing builds on (epi, "upon") the verbal idea and hence is defined by the individual context.

Example: 1 Cor 13:12: "For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will aptly-experientially know (1921 /epiginṓskō) to the extent (2531 /kathṓs) I also have been aptly-experientially known (1921 /epiginṓskō)."

[Believers then will personally (aptly) know the Lord throughout the aeons of eternity – in keeping with the extent (Gk kathōs) they allowed Him to personally (aptly) know them here on earth.

"Been known" is the passive form of 1921 /epiginṓskō (aorist indicative, epegnōsthēn), indicating that the level we will experientially know (enjoy) God in eternity will "match" the level we were known by Him in this life (see also P. Hughs at 2 Cor 1:13).

1097 (ginōskō) is used once in this verse, and 1921 (epiginṓskō) twice. Both uses of 1921 (epiginṓskō) work in conjunction with the Greek adverb, 2531 /kathṓs ("to the extent of)." The "appropriate (apt)" knowledge matches the envisioned "contact" (note the root, 1097 /ginṓskō, "first-hand knowing").]
