Rom 12:2 part 5 - ANA- in ANAKAINWSIS

This is my fifth question concerning Rom 12:2:
5. If ANAKAINWSIS is a word Paul coined (see question 4), what would you say
about the preposition ANA-? Would it be too much to follow the reasoning
that ANA- was chosen because Paul thinks the renewing brings something back
that was lost earlier (of course this goes into theological questions)? What
can be said about the renewing, given the fact that Paul constructed the new
word with ANA-?

Thank you for comments.
