Apostle, Apostleship

apostolos
apostole 


1. Apostle, Apostleship

apostolos is, lit., "one sent forth" (apo, "from," stello, "to send"). "The word is used of the Lord Jesus to describe His relation to God, Heb_3:1; see John_17:3. The twelve disciples chosen by the Lord for special training were so called,Luke_6:13; Luke_9:10. Paul, though he had seen the Lord Jesus, 1_Cor_9:1; 1_Cor_15:8, had not 'companied with' the Twelve 'all the time' of His earthly ministry, and hence was not eligible for a place among them, according to Peter's description of the necessary qualifications, Acts_1:22. Paul was commissioned directly, by the Lord Himself, after His Ascension, to carry the Gospel to the Gentiles.

"The word has also a wider reference. In Acts_14:4,14, it is used of Barnabas as well as of Paul; in Rom_16:7 of Andronicus and Junias. In 2_Cor_8:23 (RV, margin) two unnamed brethren are called 'apostles of the churches;' inPhp_2:25 (RV, margin) Epaphroditus is referred to as 'your apostle.' It is used in 1_Thess_2:6 of Paul, Silas and Timothy, to define their relation to Christ." [ From Notes on Thessalonians, by Hogg and Vine, pp. 59-60.]

About

apostolicrevelation.info is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
