Beloved Names of God...series...Rabbi

 

Rabbi

 
"The same came to Jesus by night and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him."
John 3:2 KJV
 
  • Name of God the Son
  • Jesus is called "Rabbi" four times in the KJV.
  • The word Rabbi is often taken to mean "religious teacher," but it can also be interpreted as 'great one" or "master."
  • In John 3:2, Nicodemus, a wise Pharisee, has met Jesus for the first time. He wasn't yet ready to declare himself a disciple, but he immediately gave Jesus the respectful title of Rabbi. Nicodemus would speak up for Jesus at HIs trial and help prepare His body for burial.
To be a teacher is a wonderful things. But Jesus was the Son of God and the Messiah. The title of Rabbi, or teacher, is surely one of His humbler designations.
 
However, two centuries after His death, countless books have been written about His life and His teachings.
**************************
Come back next Sabbath as we look at "El-Elyon" :O)
Why? Because Jesus was, and still is, the greatest teacher the world has ever known.
