παντοκράτωρ, pantokrator is generally translated as "almighty," interpreted as a matter of power. I.e. the bible talks about one infinite God, El shaddai. But im curious if we may have been misinterpreting the flavor of the word found in Revelation (particularly around the term "Alpha and Omega") as a matter of authority, rather than power.
The panto part is obvious, but the secons half seems to be rooted in κρατέω, the basis of a democracy or theocracy. Could therefore a pantokrator be pointing at the authority over all rather than it's power?
