SORT BY Relevancy
I am almost ashame to even address this question. Because a simple reading of Scripture proves that the answer is YES. Anyone who can pick up a concordance will see that the word episcopos or bishop is found in Acts 20:28 - the Holy Ghost has made you episcopos or bishops (bishop and overseer are one and the same) to feed (poimen or pastor or shepherd) the church of God.
Not one time in Scripture is someone called PASTOR in the NEW TESTAMENT. But we have word four PASTORAL EPISTLES.
The Bishop is the PASTOR found in Ephesian 4:11.
Note the Apostle Paul mentions two types of elders in 1 Timothy 5:17 that RULES the local church - the ruling elder and the elder that labour in WORD and DOCTRINE aka the BISHOP/Pastor.
Paul writes Timothy and Ephesians to the Church at Ephesus.
We need to stop trying to interpret Scripture with the MESS from today and look back in time and see how they saw the Bishop then. There are enough records and writings out so as the scriptures says -- brethren you would not be ignorant.

St. Justin de Jacobis -- Born at San Fele, Italy. At 18 he was ordained. After helping found a Vincentian house at Monopoly, he served as superior at Lecce and in 1839 was sent as the first prefect and vicar apostolic to the new Catholic mission at Adua, Ethiopia. His efforts to evangelize met with great opposition., but in 1841 he was included in a delegation of Ethiopian prelates to Cairo to request the Coptic patriarch of Alexandria to appoint one of his monks Abuna (patriarch) of the Ethiopian church. In Cairo, the patriarch denounced the presence of Father de Jacobis on the delegation and intrigued to a point one Salama as Abuna. Some of the delegation then accompanied Father de Jacobis to meet the Pope in Rome. On his return, Father de Jacobis founded a college and seminary at Guala, and in 1846 a vicariate apostolic of the Galla was established, with William Massaia as its first bishop. These developments caused Salama to launch an anti-Catholic campaign. The college was closed, Catholicism was proscribed, and bishop Massaia was forced to return to Aidan. In 1848, he secretly consecrated Father de Jacobis, now a fugitive, bishop at Massawa, with authority to administer the sacraments in the Ethiopian rite. By 1853, the new bishop had ordained some twenty Ethiopians, was ministering to 5000 Catholics, and was able to reopen the college. In 1860, Kedaref Kassa became king as Theodore II and in return for the backing he had received from Abuna Salama, launched a persecution of the Catholics. Bishop de Jacobis was arrested and improsoned. After release he managed to find his way to Halai in southern Eritrea. He spent the rest of his life in missionary work along the Red Sea coast and died in the valley of Alghedien.
