Seems strange to me that Ignatius would promote the term "bishop". Did X-tian promoters come up with the word (bishop) to promote their hidden agenda perhaps? Perhaps "overseer" would be a better choice? "Bishop" seems to have a lot of baggage attached to it.

No the word "bishop" has its equivalent in the hierarchy at Qumran

MEVAKAR (Overseer) or "Pastor/Shepherd" he would lead the local congregation, feed the sheep and protects them from wolves.

Continuing with this thread diversion....

1) The HRV has Elder and Oversser. (1 Tim 3:1-2, 4-22, 1 Titus 1:7, 1 Peter 2:25)

2) If our basis for using the term is upon its use at Qumran, (...where?) why are there no "bishops" in the overseers of NJ?
