[17] The Designations Of Bishop And Overseer

The same analogy can be used for bishops and the overseers.

It Was Said Of Christ

It Was Said Of Human Priesthood

(1 Pet 2:25) For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

(Titus 1:7) For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money,

In the context of the prophesy about Bethlehem, Christ is describes as an overseer.

 

It Was Said Of Christ

It Was Said Of Human Priesthood

(Mat 2:6) 'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.'"

(1 Tim 5:17) Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.

 

[18] How Awesome Is The Difference Between Christ And That of Human Bishops And Overseers.

Christ is the all in all Bishop and overseer, while the human clergy works within a limited sphere. They are shepherds under the shepherdship of Christ

He is the Bishop and Overseer of our souls (1 Peter 2:25), while they as commissioned bishops and priests who were entrusted with this responsibility.
