New things are here mentioned before old , as the latter receive light and savour from the former, and are at length tempered together most harmoniously. See 1 John The former meaning obtains in this passage. If you accept the latter reading, cf. In his App. Placet Heinsio. Cyrillus alibi, Lat.
Irenaeus , latine certe, Cant. Matthew supports it. Besides, it is not simply members of the kingdom who are here spoken of, but those who, being already in it themselves, are qualified henceforth to be teachers for it.

But Beng. Pulpit Commentary Verse The interpretation of the following clause, naturally suggested by this word in itself is that our Lord meant to indicate the possibilities that lay before a Jewish scribe if he were only converted; but for such a reference by our Lord to Jewish scribes there appears no reason in the context. The word must therefore be understood of Christian teachers, who by their study of the Gospel should hold a position in the Christian Church parallel to that of scribes among the Jews. It is possible that our Lord chose the term in order to accustom his disciples to the idea of carrying on the study of Divine things which the scribes were accustomed to make.
Even if the disciples were not to follow their methods they might well imitate their devotion Dean Plumptre has an interesting note on our Lord's comparison of his own work and that of the apostles after him, to the work of the scribes of the Jewish schools. In Matthew is found a wider application of the term than usual, hardly referring, however, to Christians, but rather to the Jewish scribes in their ideal character. Though the correction is right cf.
Matthew , the word, nevertheless, implies much more than mere admission to the circle of disciples it includes also the thought of instruction having been really received. The kingdom is not regarded as the teacher, but as the school, with reference to which discipleship is entered upon.

Is like. In the preceding parables the general principles, etc. Unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure cf. Matthew , note. The thing signified is his experience and spiritual understanding. It is curious that the thought of Matthew , 34 should also resemble our vers. The thought of the saying is that as a householder brings out from his stores food recently and long ago acquired cf.
Song of Solomon , so a Christian "scribe" brings out primarily, if not solely, for the use of others the new truths that he learns, and also old ones that he has long since known. It is thus a promise that the disciples shall if they use their opportunities rightly be able to do more than understand Christ's teaching as they have just claimed to have done ; for they shall be able to teach not merely to learn , and that not only new truths, but also old ones; they shall be able, that is to say, to understand the relation of the old to the new, and to bring out even the old in its true meaning, Hence old is mentioned after new , for it implies greater knowledge and skill.
It will be observed that Irenaeus' interpretation IV. With the disciples, it is true, the old would naturally be, in the first place, Old Testament truths, and the new , such truths as they learned from Christ; but these also would, after a few weeks or months, in their turn become old to them, and the fresh truths taught them as their life went on would be ever the new ones.
The thought of 1 John , 8 is very similar. Weiss' interpretation is different and even less right. According to him, new represents the truths about the kingdom of God, and old the long known arrangements of nature and human life, which, as the parables show, are drawn up on the same hues. Origen gives a beautiful application of Leviticus , 11 a.
The kingdom of heaven is personified. The disciples of Christ are disciples of that kingdom of which he is the representative.
