STRONGS NT 3824: παλιγγενεσία

παλιγγενεσία (T WH παλιγγενεσία (cf. Tdf. Proleg., p. 77 bottom)), παλιγγενεσίας, (πάλιν and γένεσις), properly, new birth, reproduction, renewal, recreation (see Halm on Cicero, pro Sest. § 140), Vulg. and Augustineregeneratio; hence, "moral renovation, regeneration, the production of a new life consecrated to God, a radical change of mind for the better" (effected in baptism (cf. references under the word βάπτισμα, 3)): Titus 3:5 (cf. the commentaries at the passage (especially Holtzmann, where see, p. 172f for references); Weiss, Biblical Theol. especially §§ 84, 108; cf. Suicer, Thesaurus, under the word). Commonly, however, the word denotes the restoration of a thing to its pristine state, its renovation, as the renewal or restoration of life after death, Philo leg. ad Gaium § 41; de cherub. § 32; (de poster. Cain. § 36); Long. past. 3, 4 (2) (παλιγγενεσία ἐκ θανάτου); Lucian, encom. muscae 7; Schol. ad Sophocles Elec. 62 (Πυθαγόρας περί παλιγγενεσίας ἐτερατευετο); Plutarch, mor., p. 998 c. (i. e. de esu carn. 2:4, 4) (ὅτι χρωνται κοινοις αἱ ψυχαί σώμασιν ἐν ταῖς παλιγγενεσιαις (cf. ibid. 1:7, 5; also de Isa. et Osir. 72; de Ei quoted in Delph. 9; etc.)); the renovation of the earth after the deluge, Philo de vim Moys. ii., § 12; Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 9, 4 [ET]; the renewal of the world to take place after its destruction by fire, as the Stoics taught, Philo (de incorrupt. mundi §§ 3, 14, 17); de round. § 15; Antoninus 11, 1 ((cf. Gataker ad loc.); Zeller, Philos. d. Griech. iii, p. 138); that signal and glorios change of all things (in heaven and earth) "for the better, that restoration of the primal and perfect condition of things which existed before the fall of our first parents," which the Jews looked for in connection with the advent of the Messiah, and which the primitive Christians expected in connection with the visible return of Jesus from heaven: Matthew 19:28 (where the Syriac correctly )tDX )MLOB [], in the new age or world); cf. Bertholdt, Christologia Judaeorum, p. 214f; Gfrörer, Jahrhundert des Heils, ii., p. 272ff; (Schürer, Neutest. Zeitgesch. § 29, 9; Weber, Altsynagog. Paläst. Theol. § 89). (Further, the word is used of Ciceros restoration to rank and fortune on his recall from exile, Cicero, ad Att. 6, 6; of the restoration of the Jewish nation after the exile, παλιγγενσια πατρίδος, Josephus, Antiquities 11, 3, 9; of the recovery of knowledge by recollection, παλιγγενεσία τῆς γνώσεως ἐστιν ἀνάμνησις, Olympiodorus quoted by Cousin in the Journal des Sarans for 1834, p. 488.)
