HELPS Word-studies

649 apostéllō (from 575 /apó, "away from" and 4724 /stéllō, "send") – properly, send away, i.e. commission; (passive) "sent on a defined mission by a superior."

As an intensification of 4724 /stéllō ("send"), 649 (apostéllō) focuses back to the source (the one sending), strongly connecting the sender to the one sent (His mission). This verb is used of closely connecting the Lord (the sender) to the believers He personally commissions – as with John the Baptist (Mk 11:2) and the twelve apostles (Mt 10:5; cf. also with His holy angels, Mk 13:27).

1. to order (one) to go to a place appointed;

a. either persons sent with commissions, or things intended for someone. So, very frequently, Jesus teaches that God sent him, as Matthew 10:40; Mark 9:37; Luke 10:16; John 5:36, etc. he, too, is said to have sent his apostles, i. e. to have appointed them: Mark 6:7; Matthew 10:16; Luke 22:35; John 20:21, etc. messengers are sent: Luke 7:3; Luke 9:52; Luke 10:1; servants, Mark 6:27; Mark 12:2; Matthew 21:36; Matthew 22:3; an embassy, Luke 14:32; Luke 19:14; angels, Mark 13:27; Matthew 24:31, etc. Things are said to be sent, which are ordered to be led away or conveyed to anyone, as Matthew 21:3; Mark 11:3; τό δρέπανον i. e. reapers, Mark 4:29 (others take ἀποστέλλω here of the putting forth of the sickle, i. e. of the act of reaping; cf. (Joel 3:18); Revelation 14:15 (under the word πέμπω, b.)); τόν λόγον, Acts 10:36; Acts 13:26 (L T Tr WH ἐξαπεστάλη); τήν ἐπαγγελίαν (equivalent to ἐπηγγελμενον, i. e. the promised Holy Spirit) ἐφ' ὑμᾶς, Luke 24:49 (T Tr WH ἐξαποστέλλω); τί διά χειρός τίνος, after the Hebrew בְּיַד, Acts 11:30.

b. The place of the sending is specified: ἀποστέλλειν εἰς τινα τόπον, Matthew 20:2; Luke 1:26; Acts 7:34; Acts 10:8; Acts 19:22; 2 Timothy 4:12; Revelation 5:6, etc. God sent Jesus εἰς τόν κόσμον: John 3:17; John 10:36; John 17:18; 1 John 4:9. εἰς (unto, i. e.) among: Matthew 15:24; Luke 11:49; Acts (Acts 22:21 WH marginal reading); ; (ἐν (by a pregnant or a Latin construction) cf. Winers Grammar, § 50, 4; Buttmann, 329 (283): Matthew 10:16; Luke 10:3; yet see 1 a. above); ὀπίσω τίνος, Luke 19:14; ἔμπροσθεν τίνος, John 3:28; and πρό προσώπου τίνος, after the Hebrew לִפְנֵי־, before (to precede) one: Matthew 11:10; Mark 1:2; Luke 7:27; Luke 10:1. πρός τινα, to one: Matthew 21:34, 37; Mark 12:2; Luke 7:3, 20; John 5:33; Acts 8:14; 2 Corinthians 12:17, etc. Whence, or by or from whom, one is sent: ὑπό τοῦ Θεοῦ, Luke 1:26 (T Tr WH ἀπό); παρά Θεοῦ, John 1:6 (Sir. 15:9); ἀπό with the genitive of person, from the house of anyone: Acts 10:17 (T WH Tr marginal reading ὑπό), 21 Rec.; ἐκ with the genitive of place: John 1:19.

c. The object of the mission is indicated by an infinitive following: Mark 3:14; Matthew 22:3; Luke 1:19; Luke 4:18 (Isaiah 61:1 (on the perfect cf. Winers Grammar, 272 (255); Buttmann, 197 (171))); Luke 9:2; John 4:38; 1 Corinthians 1:17; Revelation 22:6. (followed by εἰς for: εἰς διακονίαν, Hebrews 1:14. followed by ἵνα: Mark 12:2, 13; Luke 20:10, 20; John 1:19; John 3:17; John 7:32; 1 John 4:9. (followed by ὅπως: Acts 9:17.) followed by an accusative with infinitive: Acts 5:21. followed by τινα with a predicate accusative: Acts 3:26 (εὐλογοῦντα ὑμᾶς to confer God's blessing on you (cf. Buttmann, 203ff (176ff)); Acts 7:35 (ἄρχοντα, to be a ruler); 1 John 4:10.

d. ἀποστέλλειν by itself, without an accusative (cf. Winers Grammar, 594 (552); Buttmann, 146 (128)): as ἀποστέλλειν πρός τινα, John 5:33; with the addition of the participle λέγων, λέγουσα, λέγοντες, to say through a messenger: Matthew 27:19; Mark 3:31 (here φωνοῦντες αὐτόν R G, καλοῦντες αὐτόν L T Tr WH); John 11:3; Acts 13:15; (Acts 21:25 περί τῶν πεπιστευκότων ἐθνῶν ἡμεῖς ἀπεστείλαμεν (L Tr text WH text) κρίναντες etc. we sent word, giving judgment, etc.). When one accomplished anything through a messenger, it is expressed thus: ἀποστείλας or πέμψας he did so and so; as, ἀποστείλας ἀνεῖλε, Matthew 2:16; Mark 6:17; Acts 7:14; Revelation 1:1; (so also the Greeks, as Xenophon, Cyril 3, 1, 6 πέμψας ἠρώτα, Plutarch, de liber. educ. c. 14 πέμψας ἀνεῖλε τόν θεοκριτον; and the Sept. 2 Kings 6:13 ἀποστείλας λήψομαι αὐτόν).

2. to send away, i. e. to dismiss;

a. to allow one to depart: τινα ἐν ἀφέσει, that he may be in a state of liberty, Luke 4:18 (19), (Isaiah 58:6).

b. to order one to depart, send off: Mark 8:26; τινα κενόν, Mark 12:3.

c. to drive away: Mark 5:10. (Compare: ἐξαποστέλλω, συναποστέλλω. Synonym: see πέμπω, at the end)
