This is a great question and I wanted to ensure it doesn't attract a lot of spam :)

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! We're a little different from other sites. This answer isn't quite what we are looking for here. Please read this post to learn more about what we're looking for in good posts.

This is a fascinating answer. Do you have any additional scholarly sources you can draw on to support it? I'd like to check them out.

Also, there may be some special usage in a specific passage of interest to you that we could clue you in on. Even so, I intend to answer this for you.

It would probably be better to ask about a specific text, as this may be off topic (especially if there ever comes to exist a site about the Greek language).

comment Could the “tree of knowledge of good and evil” mean “tree of intelligence”?
Hello @Mawia this was a great question! Towards the end it seemed almost like the beginning of an interesting speculation that could be part of an answer as well. I went ahead and removed that part. It doesn't detract from any existing answers and you can always copy and paste it from the edit history to begin a new answer with it if you ever decide to do so. I just wanted to leave a note here on why I did that in case you were wondering. +1 from me on the question now by the way, good stuff.

The last paragraph was the beginning of an answer, not part of the question. Changed part of it to make it a question and removed the answer part.

comment What is the precedent for using water as a symbol for God's Spirit in John 3:5?
I made an edit to your question so that it is primarily focused on understanding the symbology in John 3:5, rather than primarily hunting/fishing for Bible references. I did it in such a way that you should receive the same outcome, i.e. a good answer should supply numerous references supporting (or negating) the use of this symbol in other earlier Biblical texts and related literature with which John may have been familiar. Keep in mind that if this is not an acceptable edit, you may roll it back or change it. However, I think this edit helps ensure the main goal is to understand John 3:5.

Tweaked this question so it is seeking to understand John 3:5 rather than 'fishing' for Bible references (yet still allowing good answers to supply many such references)

I'm torn on this question. It seems like a very good question, but at the same time it also seems to be fishing for verses rather than seeking to understand a specific text. Even so, 'fishing' can be helpful in understanding this passage, so I'm inclined to receive this question favorably. I'll think about it.
