Where and how anadeiknymi is used in the New Testament

  1. Luke 10:1 NASB – “”Now after this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them in pairs ahead of Him to every city and place where He Himself was going to come.””

  2. Acts 1:24 NASB – “”And they prayed and said, “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two You have chosen””

My observation and perspective

Here we see people chosen for tasks, but no mention of being appointed to rule over or govern others.
