The expression: "ἐντεῦθεν καὶ ἐντεῦθεν"

How do I work out the meaning of a Greek text? How can I best understand the forms and vocabulary in this particular text?

Thanks Jason and Barry! The idea of an agenda is always a possibility, especially when someone doesn't want to accept the text at face value.

I came across a recent post on Reddit from Ted, who hasn’t given up on his quest for a satisfying answer. Here is my response.

Anything anyone would add or take away?
I agree with Jason, well answered, as it was in this forum above in 2012. Often if an individual asks the same question over and over, when it has been correctly and fairly answered, there is an agenda involved.
I agree, especially in the light of Carl Conrad's 2012 response.

How else would the questioner expect it to be understood? What possible agenda could be had regarding this verse? Sometimes I feel so naïve.

No doubt here’s the Agenda.

Oh, I see. It's an attempt to twist the Greek language in order to smooth over an apparent contradiction within the Gospels. Gotcha.
