Amanuensis – What is an amanuensis? Did the Bible writers ever use an amanuensis?

An amanuensis was a person who wrote a letter while it was spoken (dictated) by someone else. An amanuensis does not interfere with Bible inspiration (2 Tim. 3:16-17); it simply means the document was not physically written by someone like an apostle. One example of an amanuensis appears to be in Romans 16:22.

Find the truth about God and become a New Testament Christian. Find out more about New Testament Christianity by running some Internet searches for “church of Christ” and “churches of Christ.” You may also want to visit for Bible study information.

Remember, in order to be saved and enjoy all God’s blessings (not the least of which is salvation), a person must have faith (Jn. 8:24), be willing to repent (Lk. 13:3), and after confessing Christ as Lord, the final step is water baptism (Rom. 6:3; 1 Cor. 12:13; 1 Pet. 3:20-21). Bible baptism is by immersion only (“burial,” Rom. 6:4), and once it is done, heaven puts that person “into Christ” (Gal. 3:27; Rom. 6:3). After proper baptism a person has their sins forgiven (Acts 2:38).
