Kitto's Popular Cyclopedia of Biblial Literature
Rabbi, a title of honor given to the teachers of the law in the time of Christ, and for which there is no exact equivalent in our language, though perhaps in purport and usage it comes near to 'doctor' or 'master:' a word combining both these significations would fairly represent it.
