1988 epistátēs (from 1909 /epí, "appropriately on, fitting," which intensifies 2476 /hístēmi, "standing") – properly, the legal standing of ownership referring to the master-in-charge, i.e. the one fully authorized (aptly acknowledged as the leader). 1988 /epistátēs ("Master") supremely refers to Jesus, the head (owner) of all things (cf. Jn 1:3; Col 1:15,18).

Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 1988: ἐπιστάτης

ἐπιστάτης, ἐπιστατου, (ἐφίστημι), any sort of a superintendent or overseer (often so in secular writings, and several times in the Sept., as Exodus 1:11; Exodus 5:14; 1 Kings 5:16; 2 Kings 25:19; Jeremiah 36:26 (); 2 Chronicles 2:2; 2 Chronicles 31:12); a master, used in this sense for רַבִּי by the disciples (cf. Luke 17:13) when addressing Jesus, who called him thus not from the fact that he was a teacher, but because of his authority (Bretschneider); found only in Luke 5:5; Luke 8:24, 45; Luke 9:33, 49; Luke 17:13.
