Where and how epithanatios is used in the New Testament:

  1. 1 Corinthians 4:9 NASB – “For, I think, God has exhibited us apostles last of all, as men condemned to death; because we have become a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.”

My observations and perspective

No mention of men being appointed to rule others. If anything we see here that men are appointed to, it’s death. I find this very ironic given the countless people who claim they’re appointed to rule others. The apostles had quite a different view of what is meant to be appointed.
