    • 1855, Timothy Metcalf Shann, Biblico-Metaphrastic Annotations[1], page 27:
      The Greek word, palingenesia, is only twice used in the New Testament; namely, here and' at Titus iii. 5., and it is in both places translated “regeneration,” a word used, I believe, in no other part of our version of the Scriptures.
    • 1861 July 1, “Gioberti's Philosophy of Revelation”, in Brownson's Review[2], volume 2, number 3, page 310:
      The palingenesia having its first and last cause, as palingenesia, in the Incarnation is strictly supercosmic, supernatural, though it presupposes the natural, and like the cosmos has God for its first and last cause.
    • 2010, Merrill C. Tenney, The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible[3], volume 3:
      The palingenesia, then, of the individual issues in resurrection.
