Freedman, Free Woman

FREEDMAN, FREE WOMAN. A rendering of two slightly different Greek words. Apeleutheros, 1Cor.7.22, refers to a slave who has received his freedom, though this verse concerns one who has received spiritual freedom from the Lord. Eleutheros, is used in Gal.4.22-Gal.4.23, Gal.4.30 and Rev.6.15, and refers to a free woman or man as opposed to a slave.
