Bishop

Greek episkopos, meaning “overseer,” an office or position of responsibility. Hence, Jesus is called the “Bishop of your souls” (1 Pet. 2:21–25). Judas is also spoken of as having a “bishoprick,” reflecting the fact that the Twelve are overseers (Acts 1:20; D&C 114).

Bishop is also an ordained office in the Aaronic Priesthood (D&C 20:67), and a bishop is a common judge in Israel (D&C 107:74). The desirable qualifications of a bishop are listed in 1 Tim. 3:1–7; Titus 1:7–9. See also Ministry.
