Oh, how great is Your goodness?

Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust in You In the presence of the sons of men! Psalm 31:19 NKJV.

Jesus Teaching

Jesus Teaching

Great, rab, Strong’s # 7227- Great, abundant, many, large in number; of major importance; chief, weighty, significant, noble, princely. Rab appears over 400 times in OT. It comes from the verb rabab,” to become numerous or great.” The title rabbi is a derivative of rab.

Rabbi has been defined as “my teacher,” a more precise explanation is that it means “my great one” (full of knowledge) or “my master” (great instructor). Our Lord Jesus did not allow His followers to be called by this lofty title: He stressed that we can have but one Rabbi, and that must be the Messiah only (Matt.23:8).
