Vine’s notes on “know”…part 1…

In the NT ginosko frequently indicates a relation between the person “knowing” and the object known; in this respect, what is “known” is of value or importance to the one who knows, and hence the establishment of the relationship, e.g., especially of God’s “knowledge,” 1Co_8:3, “if any man love God, the same is known of Him”; Gal_4:9, “to be known of God”; here the “knowing” suggests approval and bears the meaning “to be approved”; so in 2Ti_2:19; cf. Joh_10:14, Joh_10:27; Gen_18:19; Nah_1:7; the relationship implied may involve remedial chastisement, Amo_3:2. The same idea of appreciation as well as “knowledge” underlies several statements concerning the “knowledge” of God and His truth on the part of believers, e.g., Joh_8:32; Joh_14:20, Joh_14:31; Joh_17:3; Gal_4:9 (1st part); 1Jo_2:3-13, 1Jo_2:14; 1Jo_4:6, 1Jo_4:8, 1Jo_4:16; 1Jo_5:20; such “knowledge” is obtained, not by mere intellectual activity, but by operation of the Holy Spirit consequent upon acceptance of Christ. Nor is such “knowledge” marked by finality; see e.g., 2Pe_3:18; Hos_6:3, RV.
The verb is also used to convey the thought of connection or union, as between man and woman, Mat_1:25; Luk_1:34.
