The Greek word analogizo

Found just once in the New Testament (Heb. 12:3), the Greek verb “analogizo” meant “consider” or “contemplate.”  The Hebrew writer said we are to “consider” Jesus.   Other verses in the book of Hebrews also tell us to “consider” Jesus (see Heb. 3:1; 7:4; 12:3), but these other passages do not use the verb found in Heb. 12:3.
