Used in AV and NJB in addresses to Jesus (e.g. Matt. 12: 38) where REB and NRSV prefer ‘Teacher’—though REB and NJB use Master in Matt. 21: 3 where AV and NRSV translate ‘the Lord’ for a different noun in the Greek. A third Greek noun is used for Master (six times in Luke e.g. Luke 5: 5, AV, NRSV, REB, NJB) where there is an overtone of authority.
