Bible Term: Ambassador

An ambassador is someone authorized to act on behalf of a higher authority; they serve as a representative. The common usage today is a person who represents their country to a foreign government.

Some translations of the Bible use the word ambassador in this sense, as someone who acts on God‘s behalf as his representative to others.

For example:

Jesus sent out his twelve disciples as his ambassadors (Mark 6:7, Amplified version).

Paul said he was Jesus’ ambassador (Ephesians 6:20 and Philemon 1:9, Amplified version).

Followers of Jesus serve as his ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:20), with the responsibility to act rightly and represent him properly.
