Prince of Life

The word translated as “prince” (Acts 3:15; Acts 5:31 , “author” and “leader” respectively in some modern versions) is also translated as “captain” (Hebrews 2:10; “pioneer” or “author” in some modern versions) and “author” (Hebrews 12:2; “pioneer” in modern versions). All of these references are to Jesus as the founder of a new life which His followers now share with Him.
