Dictionaries :: Governor

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g2232 Greek: hegemon

Governor:

is a term used

(a) for "rulers" generally, Mar 13:9; 1Pe 2:14; translated "princes" (i.e., leaders) in Mat 2:6;

(b) for the Roman procurators, referring, in the Gospels to Pontius Pilate, e.g., Mat 27:2; Luk 20:20 (so designated by Tacitus, Annals, XV. 44); to Felix, Act 23:26. Technically the procurator was a financial official under a proconsul or propraetor, for collecting the Imperial revenues, but entrusted also with magisterial powers for decisions of questions relative to the revenues. In certain provinces, of which Judea was one (the procurator of which was dependent on the Legate of Syria), he was the general administrator and supreme judge, with sole power of life and death. Such a governor was a person of high social standing. Felix, however, was an ex-slave, a freedman, and his appointment to Judea could not but be regarded by the Jews as an insult to the nation. The headquarters of the governor of Judaea was Caesarea, which was made a garrison town.
See PRINCE, RULER. For anthupatos, "a proconsul," see PROCONSUL.

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g1481 Greek: ethnarches

Governor:

"an ethnarch," lit. "a ruler of a nation" (ethnos, "a people," arche, "rule"), is translated "governor" in 2Cr 11:32; it describes normally the ruler of a nation possessed of separate laws and customs among those of a different race. Eventually it denoted a ruler of a Province, superior to a tetrarch, but inferior to a king (e.g., Aretas).

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g3623 Greek: oikonomos

Governor:

lit., "one who rules a house" (oikos, "a house," nomos, "a law"), Gal 4:2, denotes a superior servant responsible for the family housekeeping, the direction of other servants, and the care of the children under age.
See CHAMBERLAIN, STEWARD.

A-4 Noun Strong's Number: g755 Greek: architriklinos

Governor:

from arche, "rule," and triklinos, "a room with three couches," denotes "the ruler of a feast," Jhn 2:8, RV (AV, "the governor of the feast"), a man appointed to see that the table and couches were duly placed and the courses arranged, and to taste the food and wine.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g2233 Greek: hegeomai

Governor:

akin to A, No. 1, is used in the present participle to denote "a governor," lit., "(one) governing," Mat 2:6; Act 7:10.

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g2230 Greek: hegemoneuo

Governor:

to be a hegemon, "to lead the way," came to signify to be "a governor of a province;" it is used of Quirinius, governor of Syria, Luk 2:2, RV (for the circumstances see under ENROLLMENT); of Pontius Pilate, governor of Judaea, Luk 3:1. In the first clause of this verse the noun hegemonia, "a rule of sovereignty," is translated "reign;" Eng., "hegemony."

Note: In Jam 3:4, the verb euthuno, "to make or guide straight," is used in the present participle, as a noun, denoting the "steersman" (RV) or pilot of a vessel, AV, "governor."
