Reformation Study Bible – Matt 10:2
Matt 10:2

10:2 apostles. The Greek word apostolos designates an authorized representative or emissary whose word has the authority of the sender (see 2 Cor. 8:23 where it is translated “messengers,” and 2 Cor. 1:1 note). Here the Twelve receive authority to do exactly what Jesus was doing (vv. 7, 8).
