Dictionary

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Captain
(in the bible) In the Douay Version, captain represents several different Hebrew and Latin words. It is used only for the highest civilofficers as in the expressions "captain of my people" (4Kings), and "let us appoint a captain" (Numbers 14). Military officers of all grades, however, are thus designated, e.g.: generals; infantry officers; captains of cavalry (2Par.); commanders of the bodyguard (Genesis 26); officers charged with the organization of newly-levied troops and the order of the camp, and some whose status was not clear but who were later aides-de-camp. In the New Testament "captain", occurs but once: "for out of thee shall come forth the captain [1] that shall rule my people Israel" (Matthew 2).
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Captain
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."

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Captain
CAPTAIN . This word occurs very frequently in the OT (AV [1] and RV [2] ), and appears to have been favoured by the translators as a comprehensive term to denote a ruler, or a military commander of any unit, whatever its size might be. In modern military language it means especially the commander of a company of infantry, numbering about 100 to 110 men, and is quite unsuitable as a translation. It represents in OT 13 different Hebrew words. In Ezekiel it is often used for the secular head of the Messianic kingdom: ‘prince’ will there and often elsewhere do as a rendering; ‘officer’ and ‘chief’ will suit other passages. There are further places where none of these words will do as a translation. In the NT it translates four Greek words, and means: (1) John 18:12 , Acts 22:28 a Roman military officer, a tribune of the soldiers, in command of about 1000 men, constituting the garrison of Jerusalem (hence Revelation 6:15 ; Revelation 19:18 in a general sense); (2) Luke 22:4 ; Luke 22:52 , Acts 4:1 etc., the captain of the Temple, a Levite, who had under him a body of police, probably themselves also priests, whose duty it was to keep order in the Temple at Jerusalem and guard it by night; (3) Hebrews 2:10 (RV [2] ‘author’) leader, initiator; (4) Acts 28:16 AV [1] ‘captain of the guard’ (wanting in RV [2] ), a doubtful reading and of doubtful sense. See also Army, § 2 .

Holman Bible Dictionary - Captain of the Temple
The officer second in authority only to the high priest. Pashhur (“chief governor in the house of the Lord,” Jeremiah 20:1 ) and Seraiah (“ruler of the house of God,” Nehemiah 11:11 ) held this office in the Old Testament times. In Acts it appears that one of the main functions of this officer was to keep order in the Temple (Acts 4:1 ; Acts 5:24 ,Acts 5:24,5:26 ). The plural (Luke 22:4 ,Luke 22:4,22:52 ) may refer to officers under the command of the captain of the Temple.
Webster's Dictionary - Sea Captain
The captain of a vessel that sails upon the sea.
Webster's Dictionary - Post-Captain
(n.) A captain of a war vessel whose name appeared, or was "posted," in the seniority list of the British navy, as distinguished from a commander whose name was not so posted. The term was also used in the United States navy; but no such commission as post-captain was ever recognized in either service, and the term has fallen into disuse.

2 Chronicles 13:12 (a) One of the many positions taken by our Lord for the blessing of His people. We are soldiers of JESUS CHRIST as we find in Hebrews 2:10. See2Ti 2:3.
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Captain
In the O.T. this word is used for one filling any office of rule or command: as the head of a tribe, Numbers 2:3-29 ; commander of an army, etc. The person who appeared to Joshua as 'a man' declared himself to be 'captain of the Lord's host.' He told Joshua to remove his shoes from his feet, for the ground was holy, evincing that he was God's representative to lead their warfare. Joshua 5:14,15 . In the N.T. the Lord is called 'Captain' of our salvation, ἀρχηγός, 'chief leader.' Hebrews 2:10 .
There was also a 'CAPTAIN OF THE TEMPLE,' στρατηγός. Luke 22:4,52 ; Acts 4:1 ; Acts 5:24,26 . This word is literally 'the leader of an army;' it is also applied to magistrates, Acts 16:20 , but the captain of the temple was set not over the soldiers, but over the priests and Levites: cf. Numbers 3:32 ; 1 Chronicles 9:11 ; Jeremiah 20:1 .
THE CHIEF CAPTAIN or HIGH CAPTAIN is χιλίαρχος, lit. 'Captain of a thousand,' applied to the chief of the soldiers in Jerusalem. Acts 21 - 25.
CAPTAIN OF THE GUARD, Acts 28:16 , is στρατοπεδάρχης,properly 'commander of a camp,' but here the prefect of the Praetorian Guard, an officer to whom state prisoners were entrusted at Rome.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Captain of the Temple
(Acts 4:1; Acts 5:24; Acts 5:26, ὁ στρατηγὸς τοῦ ἱεροῦ)
This is St. Luke’s name for the commander of the Levitical guard who kept order in the Temple precincts and guarded the house. He was not a civil officer, but a priest; and his duty, besides keeping the peace, was to make his rounds by night, visit all the gates, and see that the sentries were awake. The office appears in Nehemiah 11:11, Jeremiah 20:1, etc. In 2 Maccabees 3:4 he is called προστάτης τοῦ ἱεροῦ, and is said to be of the tribe of Benjamin. If the reading is correct, this would be an irregularity. In the time of Claudius Caesar, one Ananus, the commander of the Temple, was sent in bonds to Rome to answer for his actions in a Jewish-Samaritan tumult (Jos. Ant. xx. vi. 2). For the name cf. also Bellum Judaicum (Josephus) vi. v. 3.
In the NT period, some of the high priests were blamed for nepotism, because, among other things, they made their sons ‘captains of the Temple.’
In Acts 4:1 the captain intervened on the ground that the peace of the Temple was likely to be broken by the preaching of the apostles, who were regarded as unauthorized speakers, and as such were under the ban of Jeremiah 29:26; ‘that there might be an overseer in the house of the Lord for every man who is insane and prophesies, and that thou mightest put him in the stocks and in the block.’
In Acts 5:24; Acts 5:26 the captain of the Temple re-arrested Peter and John, who had escaped from prison the previous night. But clearly he was uncertain of his position, and recognized that popular opinion was on the side of the apostles. It was the policy of the Sadducees to avoid disturbance, and to give no excuse for the intervention of the Roman power. Therefore the arrest was ejected courteously, ‘without violence, for they feared the people lest they should be stoned.’
W. M. Grant.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Captain
CAPTAIN.—1. This word is the Authorized Version rendering of two Greek terms in the Gospels:—(1) χιλίαρχος, properly ‘leader of a thousand’ (John 18:12, Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 ‘chief captain,’ (Revised Version margin) ‘military tribune’; see also Mark 6:21, Acts 21:31-33; Acts 21:37; Acts 22:24; Acts 22:26-29; Acts 23:10; Acts 23:15; Acts 23:17-19; Acts 23:22; Acts 24:7; Acts 24:22-23, Revelation 6:15; Revelation 19:18). (2) στρατηγός, properly ‘leader of an army,’ ‘general’ (Luke 22:4; Luke 22:52; see also Acts 4:1; Acts 5:24; Acts 5:26).
1. χιλίαρχος is used (a) in a vague general sense of a superior military officer, and (b) technically as the Greek equivalent of the Roman prœfeetus or tribunus militum. The Roman garrison in the citadel at Jerusalem, consisting of a cohort (τάγμα = NT σπεῖρα, ‘band’ [1]) of provincial troops, Syrian Greeks, and Samaritans, whose commandant would be a civis Romanus (Acts 22:28), while they would be presented with the Imperial franchise on their discharge, was reinforced during the Passover by additional troops which were stationed in one of the Temple buildings (Mommsen, Prov. Rom. [2] Emp., English translation ii. 186). The χιλίαρχος is also called φρούραρχος by Josephus (Ant. xv. xi. 4, xviii. iv. 3); see Schürer, HJP [3] i. ii. 55. The legion consisting normally of 6000 men, the six tribuni took command for two months in turn. Palestine, however, being a Roman province of the second rank, did not possess a full legionary garrison. Mommsen gives its strength, at a subsequent period, as consisting of a detachment (ala) of cavalry and five cohorts of infantry, or about 3000 men.
2. στρατηγὸς τοῦ ἱεροῦ, the commandant of the Temple Levites. Josephus mentions the ‘captain’ (στρατηγός) of the Levitical guard in the time of Claudius (Ant. xx. vi. 2), and in that of Trajan (BJ vi. v. 3). Possibly the officers (ὑπηρέται) who assisted in the arrest of Jesus (John 18:3; cf. John 7:32; cf. John 7:45) belonged to this body. This ‘captain’ of the Temple (2 Maccabees 3:4 ὁ προστάτης τοῦ ἰεροῦ) is mentioned in Jeremiah 20:1 LXX Septuagint as ἡγούμενος and in Nehemiah 11:11 as ἀπέναντι τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ θεοῦ ‘the ruler of the house of God’ (Vulgate prineeps domus Dei Dei = איש הר הבת Mishna, Middoth i. § 2). The duty of this ‘captain of the mount of the Temple’ was to keep order in the Temple, visit the stations of the guard during the night, and see that the sentries were duly posted and alert. He and his immediate subalterns are supposed to be intended by the ‘rulers’ (ἄρχοντες) mentioned in Ezra 9:2 and Neh. passim (στρατηγοί or ἄρχοντες). See Schürer, HJP [3] ii. i. 258. The chief constable of this priestly corps of Temple police was naturally himself a Levite.
Literature—Josephus, Ant. x viii. 5, xv xi. 4, xviii. iv. 3, xx vi. 2, BJ v. v. 8, vi. v. 3; Schurer, HJP [3] i. ii. 55, ii. i. 258; Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible, article ‘Captain.’
P. Henderson Aitken.
II. Besides these two military or semi-military uses of ‘captain’ in the Gospels, we have to notice the employment of the term as a title for Christ in Hebrews 2:10 (Authorized Version and (Revised Version margin)) and Hebrews 12:2 ((Revised Version margin)). In both cases the corresponding word in the Greek text is ἀρχηγός, a word which otherwise is found in the NT only in Acts 3:15; Acts 5:31 (both times in Acts applied to Christ, and in each case rendered ‘Prince,’ with ‘Author’ as a marginal alternative in Acts 3:15).
In accordance with its derivation (ἀρχή and ἡγέομαι), ἁρχηγός originally meant a leader, and so naturally came to be applied to a prince or chief. From this the transition was easy to the further meaning of a first cause or author, which is not infrequent in the philosophical writers. For the ‘Captain’ of Authorized Version in Hebrews 2:10, Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 substitutes ‘author,’ giving ‘captain’ in the margin; and in Hebrews 12:2 both VSS [6] have ‘author,’ though Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 again gives ‘captain’ as a marginal rendering.
But when Jesus is called ἀρχηγὸς τῆς σωτηρίας (Hebrews 2:10), the meaning is not merely that He is the Author of our salvation. The context suggests that the idea of a leader going before his saved ones (cf. Hebrews 6:20) ought to be adhered to (see Davidson, Hebrews, ad loc.). Similarly when He is called τῆς πίστεως ἀρχηγός (Hebrews 12:2), the idea is that of one who has led the way along the path of faith. In both cases the term ‘Captain’ may be unsuitable, since it is apt to suggest military images which had no place in the writer’s mind; but ‘leader,’ at all events, should be retained, since the idea of leadership and not of authorship seems best to express his purpose (see Bruce, Expositor, 3rd ser. viii. [7] p. 451). For a full treatment of the subject in its apologetic and homiletic aspects, Bruce’s chapter on ‘The Captain of Salvation’ (op. cit. pp. 447–461) should be read in whole.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Captain
Heb. sar (1 Samuel 22:2 ; 2 Samuel 23:19 ). Rendered "chief," Genesis 40:2 ; 41:9 ; rendered also "prince," Daniel 1:7 ; "ruler," Judges 9:30 ; "governor,' 1 Kings 22:26 . This same Hebrew word denotes a military captain (Exodus 18:21 ; 2 Kings 1:9 ; Deuteronomy 1:15 ; 1 Samuel 18:13 , etc.), the "captain of the body-guard" (Genesis 37:36 ; 39:1 ; 41:10 ; Jeremiah 40:1 ), or, as the word may be rendered, "chief of the executioners" (marg.). The officers of the king's body-guard frequently acted as executioners. Nebuzar-adan (Jeremiah 39:13 ) and Arioch (Daniel 2:14 ) held this office in Babylon. The "captain of the guard" mentioned in Acts 28:16 was the Praetorian prefect, the commander of the Praetorian troops.
Another word (Heb. katsin) so translated denotes sometimes a military ( Joshua 10:24 ; Judges 11:6,11 ; Isaiah 22:3 "rulers;" Daniel 11:18 ) and sometimes a civil command, a judge, magistrate, Arab. Kady , ( Isaiah 1:10 ; 3:6 ; Micah 3:1,9 ).
It is also the rendering of a Hebrew word (shalish) meaning "a third man," or "one of three." The LXX. render in plural by Tristatai ; I.e., "soldiers fighting from chariots," so called because each war-chariot contained three men, one of whom acted as charioteer while the other two fought ( Exodus 14:7 ; 15:4 ; 1 Kings 9:22 ; Compare 2 Kings 9:25 ). This word is used also to denote the king's body-guard (2 Kings 10:25 ; 1 Chronicles 12:18 ; 2 Chronicles 11:11 ) or aides-de-camp.
The "captain of the temple" mentioned in Acts 4:1,5:24 was not a military officer, but superintendent of the guard of priests and Levites who kept watch in the temple by night. (Compare "the ruler of the house of God," 1 Chronicles 9:11 ; 2 Chronicles 31:13 ; Nehemiah 11:11 .)
The Captain of our salvation is a name given to our Lord (Hebrews 2:10 ), because he is the author and source of our salvation, the head of his people, whom he is conducting to glory. The "captain of the Lord's host" (Joshua 5:14,15 ) is the name given to that mysterious person who manifested himself to Abraham (Genesis 12:7 ), and to Moses in the bush (Exodus 3:2,6 , etc.) the Angel of the covenant. (See ANGEL .)
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Captain
We meet this title in one passage of the word of God, and but one, as far as my memory chargeth me, applied to the Lord Jesus Christ; and that is in the second chapter of Hebrews, and the tenth verse. And very sweetly and eminently so, must we consider the name in reference to him. For he it was, most probably, that Joshua saw in vision, long before his incarnation, before the walls of Jericho, as captain of the Lord's host, and before whom Joshua fell on his face. (Joshua 5:13-15) It is very blessed to see and know the Lord Jesus under this character, and to fight under his banner.
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Captain
As a purely military title, "captain" answers to sar in the Hebrew army and tribune in the Roman. The captain of the guard in ( Acts 28:16 ) was probably the prefectus pratorio .
Katsin , occasionally rendered captain, applies Sometimes to a military, ( Joshua 10:24 ; Judges 11:6,11 ; Isaiah 22:3 ; Daniel 11:18 ) sometimes to a civil command, e.g. (Isaiah 1:10 ; 3:6 )
The captain of the temple, mentioned (Luke 22:4 ; Acts 4:1 ; 5:24 ) superintended the guard of priests and Levites who kept watch by night in the temple.
People's Dictionary of the Bible - Captain
Captain. In the Old Testament the rendering of a Hebrew word generally signifying a military officer. There were various ranks, from the captains of 50 to the captain of the host (or commander-in-chief). 1 Samuel 17:18; 2 Samuel 19:13; 2 Kings 1:9; 2 Kings 11:15. Captains of the guard are also mentioned. Genesis 37:36; 2 Kings 25:8. These were military officers, charged, it would seem, with the defence of the royal person, and with the execution of sentences pronounced by the king: comp. 1 Kings 2:29-34; 1 Kings 2:46. The officer in the New Testament, called a captain in Acts 28:16, was probably the commander of the prætorian troops at Rome, but the R. V. omits the clause containing the word. There is another Hebrew word translated sometimes "captain," Joshua 10:24, A. V. ("chiefs" in the R.V.), sometimes "ruler," Isaiah 3:6, which denotes both a military and a civil officer. The captain of the temple, Luke 22:4; Acts 4:1; Acts 5:24, was not a military man, but the chief of the priests and Levites that watched in the temple at night. Comp. Psalms 134:1. The word "captain" applied to our Lord, Hebrews 2:10, has not a military signification.

Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Captain
1: χιλίαρχος (Strong's #5506 — Noun Masculine — chiliarchos — khil-ee'-ar-khos ) denoting "a commander of 1000 soldiers" (from chilios, "a thousand," and archo, "to rule"), was the Greek word for the Persian vizier, and for the Roman military tribune, the commander of a Roman cohort, e.g., John 18:12 ; Acts 21:31-33,37 . One such commander was constantly in charge of the Roman garrison in Jerusalem. The word became used also for any military commander, e.g., a "captain" or "chief captain," Mark 6:21 ; Revelation 6:15 ; 19:18 .
2: στρατηγός (Strong's #4755 — Noun Masculine — strategos — strat-ay-gos' ) originally the commander of an army (from stratos, "an army," and ago, "to lead"), came to denote "a civil commander, a governor" (Latin, duumvir), the highest magistrate, or any civil officer in chief command, Acts 16:20,22,35,36,38 ; also the "chief captain" of the Temple, himself a Levite, having command of the Levites who kept guard in and around the Temple, Luke 22:4,52 ; Acts 4:1 ; 5:24,26 . Cp. Jeremiah 20:1 .
3: ἀρχηγός (Strong's #747 — Adjective — archegos — ar-khay-gos' ) see AUTHOR (No. 2).
Note: In Acts 28:16 some mss. have the word stratopedarches (lit., "camp-commander"), which some take to denote a praetorian prefect, or commander of the praetorian cohorts, the Emperor's bodyguard, "the captain of the praetorian guard." There were two praetorian prefects, to whose custody prisoners sent bound to the Emperor were consigned. But the word probably means the commander of a detached corps connected with the commissariat and the general custody of prisoners.

Now, what will the soldier do?

I cannot, therefore, believe myself a Captain;' and the soldier would return to the ranks.

On seeing him, one of the generals scornfully said, 'What does this fellow want here?' 'This fellow,' replied the soldier proudly, 'is a Captain of the guard. That is to say, as he believed himself to be a Captain before wearing his uniform; so on the word and promise of God, one believes himself to be a child of Jesus, before being sanctified by his Spirit

Captain - CAPTAIN. This word is the Authorized Version rendering of two Greek terms in the Gospels:—(1) χιλίαρχος, properly ‘leader of a thousand’ (John 18:12, Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 ‘chief Captain,’ (Revised Version margin) ‘military tribune’; see also Mark 6:21, Acts 21:31-33; Acts 21:37; Acts 22:24; Acts 22:26-29; Acts 23:10; Acts 23:15; Acts 23:17-19; Acts 23:22; Acts 24:7; Acts 24:22-23, Revelation 6:15; Revelation 19:18). Josephus mentions the ‘captain’ (στρατηγός) of the Levitical guard in the time of Claudius (Ant. This ‘captain’ of the Temple (2 Maccabees 3:4 ὁ προστάτης τοῦ ἰεροῦ) is mentioned in Jeremiah 20:1 LXX Septuagint as ἡγούμενος and in Nehemiah 11:11 as ἀπέναντι τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ θεοῦ ‘the ruler of the house of God’ (Vulgate prineeps domus Dei Dei = איש הר הבת Mishna, Middoth i. The duty of this ‘captain of the mount of the Temple’ was to keep order in the Temple, visit the stations of the guard during the night, and see that the sentries were duly posted and alert. 258; Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible, article ‘Captain. Besides these two military or semi-military uses of ‘captain’ in the Gospels, we have to notice the employment of the term as a title for Christ in Hebrews 2:10 (Authorized Version and (Revised Version margin)) and Hebrews 12:2 ((Revised Version margin)). For the ‘Captain’ of Authorized Version in Hebrews 2:10, Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 substitutes ‘author,’ giving ‘captain’ in the margin; and in Hebrews 12:2 both VSS [6] have ‘author,’ though Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 again gives ‘captain’ as a marginal rendering. In both cases the term ‘Captain’ may be unsuitable, since it is apt to suggest military images which had no place in the writer’s mind; but ‘leader,’ at all events, should be retained, since the idea of leadership and not of authorship seems best to express his purpose (see Bruce, Expositor, 3rd ser.

Army - The army was divided into thousands and hundreds with Captains over each; the family too was respected in the army organization, as being the unit in the Jewish polity (Numbers 2:34; Numbers 31:14).

To the young soldier He appears in vision as a Captain, to the young preacher He appears as a preacher, to the young pastor He is the chief shepherd, to the young merchant He is an example of successful buying and selling, to a master He appears as a master, and to a servant as a servant; sometimes He is a lover, sometimes He is a husband, sometimes a son, and sometimes a brother, and so on, till He never leaves any man at his entrance on life without a divine vision, and an ideal example, and a sacred summons to take his shoes off his feet. And all young men who, like Joshua, make their start on this holy ground,-they shall surely finish their course and keep the faith till the Captain of their salvation shall not be ashamed to call them His brethren
