Rabbi

Rabboni, my master

Easton's Bible Dictionary
My master, a title of dignity given by the Jews to their doctors of the law and their distinguished teachers. It is sometimes applied to Christ (Matthew 23:7, 8; Mark 9:5 (R.V.); John 1:38, 49; 3:2; 6:25, etc. ); also to John (3:26).
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
(n.) Master; lord; teacher; -- a Jewish title of respect or honor for a teacher or doctor of the law.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
RABBI

rab'-i, rab'-i (rabbi; rhabbi, or rhabbei): A term used by the Jews of their religious teachers as a title of respect, from rabh, "great," so "my great one" (compare Latin magister), once of masters of slaves, but later of teachers (Matthew 23:7); therefore translated by didaskalos, "teacher" (Matthew 23:8 John 1:38; compare John 1:49). In the King James Version frequently rendered "Master" (Matthew 26:25, 49 Mark 9:5; Mark 11:21; Mark 14:45 John 4:31; John 9:2; John 11:8). John the Baptist (John 3:26), as well as Christ, is addressed with the title (John 1:49; John 6:25), both by disciples and others. Jesus forbade its use among His followers (Matthew 23:8). Later (Galilean) form of same, RABBONI (which see).

See TALMUD for Rabbinical literature.
