At least twelve Greek words are used at various times in the New Testament denoting some form or function of ser­vice. The development of each word in its Greek and Septua­gint backgrounds is unique; each word has a unique meaning in the New Testament. Yet the English language cannot ade­quately translate the full impact of these words as they were used by the original authors. Illumination of each term in light of its philology is necessary.
