Verses 8-12

I wonder what Jesus means when he tells his followers not to be called rabbi.

There is an element of humility. Jesus says so in verse 12.

But I’m proud to be a teacher. I just finished my PhD and there are times it’s useful to be called “Dr. Mitchell.”

I suppose part of it is not requiring students to call me Doctor. “Mr. Mitchell” makes much more sense when I’m visiting classrooms.

It’s clear that I need to do more digging and reflection on these verses. I wonder what the commentaries say.
