The Greek word anerchomai

Found just three times in the New Testament (Jn. 6:3; Gal. 1:17-18), the Greek verb “anerchomai” meant “go up” or “ascend.”

Jesus is described as “going up” into a mountain (Jn. 6:3). In Gal. 1:17-18 this verb could describe elevation or “going up” to the city of Jerusalem.
