03-13-2023 Matthew Ch 13 v-5153 Storerooms abundance reduction
Gospel of Matthew Ch 13 v- 51 thru 53
51 “Do you understand all these things?” They answered, “Yes.” 52 And he replied, “Then every scribe who has been instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household who brings from his storeroom both the new and the old.” 53 When Jesus finished these parables, he went away from there.
According to Scripture scholars of the Church, Matthew identified as typically speaking of the understanding of the disciples who indeed had different opinions and customs from old. Since Matthew tends to identify the disciples and the Twelve, this saying about the Christian scribe cannot be taken as applicable to all who accept the message of Jesus. While the Twelve are in many ways are very representative of all who believe in Him, they are also distinguished from them in certain respects. History shows that the church of Matthew had leaders among whom are a group designated as “scribes.” Indicative of their history as the scribes of Israel, meaning they are teachers. It is the Twelve and these their later counterparts to whom this verse obviously applies. The scribe…instructed in the kingdom of heaven knows both the teaching of Jesus (the new) and the law and prophets (the old) and provides in his own teaching both the new and the old as interpreted and fulfilled by the new. On the translation head of a household comes from the same Greek word that translated as householder. What we learn comes from the old and the new and details our surrender to the One and Only Messiah. Amen.

**Storerooms abundance reduction**
Things these all understood you
Yes was their answer
Replying Jesus Heaven’s Kingdom instructors true
Household head the dancer
Old and new brought forth
Storerooms abundance reduction
Parables finished by Jesus astute
There completed His instruction
