- 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"....)
