Matthew 23:10

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 And you must not be called master (leader, teacher), for you have one Master (Leader, Teacher), the Christ2 [Notice Jesus did not say, "I am your teacher; neither did he say, "scriptures are you teacher." He said, "the Christ;" Christ means the anointing or with God's spirit. So Jesus is telling them that the anointing, or the spirit of God, is their one teacher. Now look at what John says: "But the anointing that you have received from him abides in you, and you do not need any man to teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you all things and is truth, and is no lie; and even as it has taught you, abide in him." 1 John 2:27. Notice he speaks of the anointing as "abide in him;" he speaks of the spirit as a "him," whom Jesus has identified as "the Christ." The Christ speaks. ].

2 for you have one Master [Leader, Teacher], the Christ. Notice Jesus did not say, "I am your teacher;" neither did He say, "scriptures are your teacher." He said, "the Christ;"* Christ means the anointing or with God's spirit. So Jesus is telling them that the anointing, or the spirit of God, is their one teacher. Now look at what John says: But the anointing that you have received from him abides in you, and you do not need any man to teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you all things and is truth, and is no lie; and even as it has taught you, abide in him. 1 John 2:27. Notice he speaks of the anointing as "abide in him;" he speaks of the spirit as a "him," whom Jesus has identified as "the Christ." In the previous verse, (26), John tells us that there were those who were trying to seduce the brothers with false teachings. John also tells us who is an antiChrist: every spirit that does not confess the Christ* is antiChrist. 1 John 4:3; every spirit that does not acknowledge the Christ, (the anointing), as their ruling Lord is antiChrist.

* Some early Greek texts read Jesus, some read Jesus Christ, some early ones read the Christ, (see footnote 3 of the Greek NetBible).
