Likely everyone here is familar with the novel "1984" - "he who controls the past, controls the future. He who controls the present, controls the past".
Take a look at wol.jw.org, Insight Book, topic "Faithful and Discreet Slave".
Current online wording: http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200001485
Jesus trained the apostles for the role they would have after Pentecost 33 C.E. as a channel in dispensing spiritual food. They were later joined by other elders to serve as a governing body in order to settle issues and to direct the preaching and teaching of the Kingdom good news. (Ac 2:42; 8:14; 15:1, 2, 6-29; 22:17-19) After the death of the apostles, a great apostasy set in. But in the time of the end—in keeping with the pattern he set in the first century of feeding many through the hands of a few—Jesus selected a small group of spirit-anointed men to serve as “the faithful and discreet slave,” to prepare and dispense spiritual food during his presence.
Wording in the hardbound original edition from 1988:
...the apostle Peter shows that such stewardship of the divine truths was actually committed to all the 'chosen ones', all the spirit-anointed ones, of the Christian congregation. (1 Pe 1:1,2; 4:10,11) Thus the entire anointed Christian congregation was to serve in a united stewardship, dispensing such truths.
I added the shading to make it apparent what has changed.
Oh, forgot to add: Oceania is at war with Eastasia. Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.
