HELPS word-Studies

346 anakephalaíomai (from 303 /aná, "up," intensifying 2775 /kephalaióō, "bring to a head, recapitulate") – properly, head-up, summing up all the parts as a comprehensive (organized) whole.

346 /anakephalaíomai ("recapitulate") shows the head as the "organizing center," causing all the parts to work together in harmony.

[R. Lenski denies that the root of 346 (anakephalaíomai) means "head" (kephalē), and prefers kephalaion ("sum") which comes to the same basic meaning. Note that Christ (Eph 1:10) and love (Ro 13:9) relate both to the sum and the head (i.e. both realities).]

STRONGS NT 346: ἀνακεφαλαιόω

ἀνακεφαλαιόω, (ῶ: (present passive ἀνακεφαλαιοῦμαι; 1 aorist middle infinitive ἀνακεφαλαιώσασθαι); (from κεφαλαιόω, which see, and this from κεφάλαιον which see); to sum up (again), to repeat summarily and so to condense into a summary (as, the substance of a speech; Quintilian 6.1 'rerumrepetitioetcongregatio,quaegraece ἀνακεφαλαίωσιςdicitur' (ἔργον ῥητορικῆς ... ἀνακεφαλαιώσασθαι πρός ἀνάμνησιν, Aristotle, fragment 123, vol. v., p. 1499{a}, 33)); so in Romans 13:9. In Ephesians 1:10 God is said ἀνακεφαλαιώσασθαι τά πάντα ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ, to bring together again for himself (note the middle) all things and beings (hitherto disunited by sin) into one combined state of fellowship in Christ, the universal bond (cf. Meyer or Ellicott on Ephesians, the passage cited); (Protevangelium Jacobi 13εἰς ἐμέ ἀνεκεφαλαιώθη ἱστορία Ἀδάμ, where cf. Thilo).
