Octavio Rodriguez stated: "There is no one text in the Bible where the word
EXANASTASIS appears, but in Phil 3:11."
The LXX, however, does use the word in Gen 7:4.
He also asked, "Is there any other Greek text out of the Bible where we have
this word so as to learn about its usage?"
Here is what LSJM says (minus the Greek):
removal, expulsion, Plb.2.21.9, al.
II. intr., emigration, . Str.2.3.6.
2. rising from bed to go to stool, Hp.Prog.11; later simply, going to
stool, Aret.SD2.9 (pl.) Sever.Clyst.pp.3,34 D., etc.
b. rising from bed in the morning. Porph.VP40; . Gal.7.96.
3. . resurrection from the dead, EP.Phil.3.11.
4. woman's ornament, BGU717.11 (ii A.D.).
Josephus uses the word in Wars 6:69: PROS Ho TWN MEN ALLWN FULAKWN
EXANASTASIS AIFNIDIOS HN KAI FUGH PRIN TINA TO PLAQOS EPIDEIN TWN
The cognate verb EXANISTHMI is used 41 times in the LXX and in the NT at
Mark 12:19 Luke 20:28, and Acts 15:5.
This verb is also used three times in the apostolic fathers, 12 times in
Josephus, 15 times in Philo, and in a number of classical Greek authors. If
you have good Bible software you can look up some of these references. If
not, are you looking for a list of citations?
