Vocabulary form: 

into, in, among


Eisegesis is poor hermeneutical practice because it reads a meaning into the text instead of drawing it out of (exegesis) the text.

Mnemonic Singing: 

Changed from glory into glory,
'til in heaven we take our place.


In classical Greek there was littleoverlap in meaning between eijV ("into") and ejn ("in"), but in Koine Greek there is more.
