The Greek word anapempo

Found only in Lk. 23:7, 11, 15; Acts 25:21; Phile. 12, the Greek verb “anapempo” meant “send” or “send back.”

Jesus was “sent” to Herod as part of His trials (Lk. 23:7) and then “sent back” to Pilate (Lk. 23:11. 15).  Plans were made to “send” the apostle Paul to Caesar (Acts 25:21).  The slave Onesimus was “sent back” to his owner Philemon (Phile. 12).
