Dear Joed:
It is not true that Greek words have only one specific meaning. Although Greek is
a very precise language as languages go, many of its words have several meanings,
and in some cases this is very important and sometimes difficult to distinguish.
 
For example in Greek 'gennao' means "bear, beget, be born, conceive."
At least in English we have the two distinct words: "conceive" and "born" which are
quite different in real life. Yet in the Greek to "conceive" is the same word as to "be born."
Hence the "born again" doctrine of all Christendom, when in reality, we only have a "conception"
in this life and are not fully born until we are born into the kingdom of God in resurrection.
 
God be with you,
RAy
