ad -min´is -tēr ad -min -is -trā´shun διακονέω , diakonéō , διακονία , diakonı́a ̌ : Terms used in the King James Version in 1 Corinthians 12:5 ; 2 Corinthians 8:19 , 2 Corinthians 8:20 ; 2 Corinthians 9:12 respectively, and replaced in the Revised Version (British and American) by "minister" and "ministration." The root idea of both words is "service," hence to supply, or conduct or attend to anything; the performance of official duty, the conduct of affairs, the various forms of spiritual or social service. "Minister," used either of an act or of an office, is the term that best represents the apostolic thought and ideal.
