CAPTAIN OF THE TEMPLE (Luke 22:4; Acts 4:1; Acts 5:24): not military, but over the guard of the temple, consisting of priests and Levites (2 Kings 12:9), "the priests that kept the door" (2 Kings 25:18); they visited the posts by night, and saw that the sentries were on the alert. In Hebrews 2:10, (Greek "Prince leader of their salvation,") the antitypical Joshua who leads us into the heavenly Canaan. The same Greek in Hebrews 12:2, "the Author," rather "Prince leader of our faith." Acts 3:15, "Prince of life."
