WORDS OF CURRENT INTEREST

[The words in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly designated to be read in Christian Science churches on June 27, 1965.]

Every scribe which is instructed UNTO TIIE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE UNTO A MAN THAT IS AN HOUSEHOLDER, WHICH BRINCETH FORTH OUT OF HIS TREASURE THINGS NEW AND old (Matt. 13:52)

Doubtless bearing in mind that the scribes of the New Testament period were essentially lawyers and teachers of the law, who devoted themselves to its study and interpretation, those who prepared The New English Bible well translate, "When... a teacher of the law has become a learner in the kingdom of Heaven, he is like a householder who can produce from his store both the new and the old." By so doing, the scribe adds to his previous deep study of the Old Testament law his dawning understanding of the New Testament and its "gospel of the kingdom of God" (Mark 1:14).
