The term "author" or "leader" is the Greek term archēgos. It comes from the Greek root "beginning" (archē) and "to go" or "to lead" (agō). This compound came to be used of a ruler, prince, or leader (human or angelic). The term is only used three other times in the NT to refer to Jesus:

1. Prince or author of life in Acts 3:15

2. Prince or leader and savior in Acts 5:31

3. the author (or pioneer) and perfecter of the faith in Heb. 12:2.

Jesus is the starter, the provider, and the finisher of salvation.
