HELPS Lexicon excerpt

3129 manthánō (akin to 3101/mathētēs, "a disciple") – properly, learning key facts; gaining "fact-knowledge as someone learns from experience, often with the implication of reflection – 'come to realize'" (L & N, 1, 27.15).  As the root of 3101/mathētēs ("disciple") and 3100/mathēteúō ("to disciple"),3129 (manthánō) suggests grasping the facts necessary to support a particular lifestyle.  For the believer,3129 (manthánō) emphasizes learning (mastering key facts) to live in God's preferred-will (cf. 2307/thélēma), through faith ("God's inworked persuasion").  Note the direct connection of3129 (manthánō) and faith (4102/pístis) in 2 Tim 3:14,15.
