 Where and how syntassō is used in the New Testament

  1. Matthew 21:6 NASB – “The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them,”

  2. Matthew 26:19 NASB – “The disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover.”

  3. Matthew 27:10 NASB – “AND THEY GAVE THEM FOR THE POTTER’S FIELD, AS THE LORD DIRECTED ME.””

My observations and perspective

Jesus/The Lord give instructions in t he above verses. No use of church leaders claiming appointment from God for anything.
