Commentaries on Jesus’ Prohibitions Against Titles

David Guzik’s Commentary

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

This one volume commentary was prepared by Robert Jamieson, A. R. Fausset and David Brown and published in 1871

Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

Wikibooks, uncertain authorship


The main common theme is that Jesus himself accepted titles at times. Paul also used “forbidden” honorifics. This supports a non-literal reading.

Instead, Jesus is warning against allowing titles to lead us into sinful pride and spiritual arrogance. The Body of Christ is a body of equals.
