Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 23:8

_ _ But be not ye called Rabbi; for one is your Master — your Guide, your Teacher.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 23:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 23:8-10

The Jewish rabbis were also called father and master, by their several disciples, whom they required, To believe implicitly what they affirmed, without asking any farther reason; To obey implicitly what they enjoined, without seeking farther authority. Our Lord, therefore, by forbidding us either to give or receive the title of rabbi, master, or father, forbids us either to receive any such reverence, or to pay any such to any but God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 23:8

(4) But be not ye (g) called Rabbi: for (h) one is your Master, [even] Christ; and all ye are brethren.

(4) Modesty is a singular ornament of God's minsters.

(g) Seek not ambitiously after it: for our Lord does not forbid us to give the magistrate and our masters the honour that is due to them; Augustine in a sermon on the words of God from (Mat. 11:1-30).

(h) He seems to allude to references in (Isaiah 54:13) and (Jeremiah 31:34).
