-lawyers/doctors/scribes: A lawyer was one learned in the laws of Moses, which he expounded in the schools and synagogues -Matthew 22:35; Luke 10:25. The functions of the "lawyer" and "scribe" were identical. A doctor was a teacher -Luke 2:46; 5:17; Acts 5:34 (re: Gamaliel).
-Lord: Supreme master of all;
supreme in authority; he to whom a person or thing belongs (Christians
belong to Him, as He purchased us
with His blood -Ephesians 1:14);
the possessor and disposer (Hebrews 9:14,15;
3:3) of a thing, like
promises. The Lord refers to Christ (Philippians
2:11), the resurrected physical person
of Jesus. Matthew
28:18 "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given
unto me in heaven and in earth."-And
isn't that so comforting, when
you think the concerns of life are pressing upon you as never before.
-legion: A regiment of the Roman army, the number of men composing which differed at different times. It originally consisted of three thousand men, but in the time of Christ consisted of six thousand, exclusive of horsemen, who were in number a tenth of the footmen. The word is used (Matthew 26:53; Mark 5:9) to express simply a great multitude.
