BAGD gives examples of GENNAW applied to a woman giving birth, as the
equivalent of TIKTEIN.
But the locus enquired of was Psalm 2:7 LXX, hUIOS MOU EI SU, EGW SHMERON
GEGENNHKA SE. This is normally taken as metaphorical of the Resurrection
of the First-begotten from the dead, Acts 13:33-34. Compare ANAGENNHSAS in
1 Peter 1:3, and hO PRWTOTOKOS TWN NEKRWN in Revelation 1:5. Paul adverts
to it in Romans 1:4, TOU hORISQENTOS hUIOU QEOU EN DUNAMEI KATA PNEUMA
hAGIWSUNHS EX ANASTASEWS NEKRWN ktl.
