Do Elders Lead or Rule?

Do Elders Rule or Lead?

under constructoin

The Greek term for “leader” (“καθηγηταί and καθηγητὴς”) only appears in Matthew 10:10 this verse in the New Testament. Jesus likely meant that any term for “leader” would be forbidden. In Luke 14:1, the Pharisees had leaders (“τῶν ἀρχόντων”).  The church also had leaders: Hebrews 13:17,  “Obey your leaders” (“τοῖς ἡγουμένοις”); Hebrews 13:24, “Greet all your leaders” (“ἡγουμένους”); Acts 15:22, “Barsabbas and Silas, leading men among the brethren.” Even Joseph was described as a “governor of Egypt” (“ἡγούμενονἐπ’ Αἴγυπτον”), Acts 7:10). From these passages we see that people can be recognized as leaders, without anyone calling an individual “Leader Someone.”
