Luke 1:20

Dear all,

Does “anq wn” mean “since”? I thought “anti” is a preposition, but there does not seem to be any English “equivalent” for “anq” in this phrase, is there? It occurs in Luke 1:20, Luke 12:3, Luke 19:44, Acts 12:23 and 2 Thes 2:10. Is “anti toutou” in Eph 5:31 also similar? Does it mean “because of this:” (“this” referring to what comes next)?

Thanks! David Lim
