BISHOP

An overseer, one who has the charge and direction of any thing. The most common acceptation of the word in the New Testament, is that which occurs Acts 20:28 Philippians 1:1, where it signifies Christ "the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls," 1 Peter 2:25. Paul describes the qualities requisite in bishops, 1 Timothy 3:2 Titus 1:7, etc.; Christ himself is their great exemplar.
