#1.2 GREEK WORD STUDY on
μετάνοια (Gtr. metanoia) meaning 'repentance' Strong's 3341


Introduction 1.2

This is a thorough bible study including every verse that contains the Greek verb μετάνοια, 'metanoia' meaning 'repentance' (Strong's 3341) in the New Testament. To obtain a true understanding of this word these scriptures need to be meditated on and notes made of their meaning in different contexts. This requires putting scriptures together where they seem to have a similar meaning, and then meditating even more. The truth will be revealed by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to guide us into all truth (John 16:13). Wherever this word metanoia appears in the Greek, the translation of it is highlighted with bold and yellow. If the word is in italics then there is no equivalent word for it in the Greek. In Greek the suffixes and some prepositions are not added to the basic word to enhance the meaning, except for case endings, so the associated suffix or preposition has not been included in highlighted text. The exception is that we have included the definite article in the highlighted text when it has occurred, as this may be significant. Every blessing be to those who seek the truth of God's word.
