      ent is an inseperable preposition and can take a whole range of
      meanings. For instance, ent gegensehen means "look forward to" with
      ent being the "to" portion of the festivities. entstehen = originate.
      and multiple other examples could be adduced which show that "re" is
      not necessarily the best translation.

      In other words, a restrictive understanding of the prepositional
      prefix may be more a hindrance than a help (not to mention that in
      Jesus Christ and Mythology Bultmann makes it plain that he is "re"
      and not "de"....)

      Best

      Jim
