STRONGS NT 1988: ἐπιστάτης
ἐπιστάτης, -ου, , (ἐφίστημι), any sort of a superintendent or overseer (often so in secular writings, and several times in the Sept., as Exodus 1:11; Exodus 5:14; 1 Kings 5:16; 2 Kings 25:19; Jeremiah 36:26 (Jer. 29:26); 2 Chronicles 2:2; 2 Chronicles 31:12); a master, used in this sense for רַבִּי by the disciples [cf. Luke 17:13] when addressing Jesus, who called him thus "not from the fact that he was a teacher, but because of his authority" (Bretschneider); found only in Luke 5:5; Luke 8:24, 45; Luke 9:33, 49; Luke 17:13.
