Introduction 2.1

This is a thorough bible study about the meaning of the Greek word ἀνὴρ, 'aner' meaning 'man' or 'husband'. It includes every verse where the word 'aner' (Strong's 435) appears 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 aner appears in the Greek, the translation of it is highlighted with bold type and yellow. In Greek, with the exception of case endings, the suffixes and prepositions are not added to the basic word as in Hebrew, so these have not been been included in highlighted text. Every blessing be to those who seek the truth of God's word.

1:23 For if any is a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like a man seeing his natural face in a glass:
2:2 For if there come to your assembly a man with a gold ring, in beautiful clothes, and there come in also a poor man in vile clothing;
3:2 For in many things we all stumble. If any man does not stumble in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

3:5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husband:
3:7 Likewise, you husband, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers are not hindered.
