Vocabulary of the Greek NT

It lies outside our object to discuss the meaning or this term in the teaching of the Stoics and Pythagoreans, but as illustrating its reference to the Messianic ";rebirth"; of the world in Matthew 19:28, we may cite its application to the world’s renewal after the flood in Philo Vit. Mos. (ed. Cohn) II. 65 and to the restoration of Judah in Jos. Antt. XI. 66 (iii. 9). See also Dalman Words, p. 177 ff.

The word occurs in Wünsch AF p. 17.17 (iii/A.D.) ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεὸν τὸν τῆς παλινγενεσίας Θωβαρραβαυ : also in a general sense in the much mutilated P Lond 878 (iii/iv A.D.) (= III. p. xlii) δῶρ [ον ] παλινγενεσίας. For the adj. see the magic P Lond 121.510 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 100) σὺ εἶ ὁ πατὴρ τῆς παλινγενοῦς αἰῶνος. Dibelius has an elaborate note on παλινγενεσία in the HZNT ad Titus 3:5 : for its place in the mystery religions, see also Angus, Mystery Religions and Christianity, p. 95 ff.
