Why Michael. I thought you Baptists had now realised that the Early Church was Presbyterian.
From; "The Elder and Overseer: One Office in the Early Church" "In The Elder and Overseer," Ben Merkle, Asst. Prof. of New Testament at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, persuasively argues (against the current majority opinion) that the office of elder (presbuteros) and overseer (episkopos) are synonymous throughout the New Testament. Merkle originally wrote this as a Ph.D dissertation under the supervision of both Mark Seifrid and Tom Schreiner at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Recently deceased New Testament scholar E. Earle Ellis served as an outside reader for the project."
Remember that "Presbyterian" is from the Greek New Testament "presbuteros" eg 1Tim 5:17.
