Q&A

Why doesn’t the Greek word for "priest" in the Letter to the Romans appear in the Bible more often?

Question:

In your two-tape set &quot;The Priesthood Debate,&quot; James Akin points out that Romans 15:16 applies the Greek term for priest (hiereus) to New Testament ministers, who are said to have &quot;priestly duties.&quot; Why isn&#039;t this word applied to them more often in the Bible?
