(Strong's #2099 — Noun Masculine — euangelistes — yoo-ang-ghel-is-tace' )

lit., "a messenger of good" (eu, "well," angelos, "a messenger"), denotes a "preacher of the Gospel," Acts 21:8; Ephesians 4:11 , which makes clear the distinctiveness of the function in the churches; 2 Timothy 4:5 . Cp. euangelizo, "to proclaim glad tidings," and euangelion, "good news, gospel." Missionaries are "evangelists," as being essentially preachers of the Gospel.
