The obvious problem is that bodies were anointed after death, not before, so the sense is very much "in advance."

I'm trying to get a handle on the semantics of PROELABEN MURISAI  in hO ESXEN EPOIHSEN PROELABEN MURISAI TO SWMA MOU EIS TON ENTAFIASMON Mk 14:8.

BDAG under PROLAMBANW refers to BDF 392,2 which seems to reduce PROELABEN to the function of an adverb "beforehand."  But BDAG 1b provides another sense: "undertake", and provides the example PROELABON PARAKALEIN hUMAS from IEph 3:2 (I don't have access to this for context).

Is there a problem with seeing "undertake" as a possible sense?

John
