Matthew 13:52 NASB
And Jesus said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a head of a household, who brings out of his treasure things new and old.”
The scribe is a student of the scriptures, a learner whose authority is “not decisive but linked with others in authority.” The disciple follows the King out of love and knows the Kingdom by the King’s enlightenment.
To know the writings of the king and then to follow the King Himself is what makes the disciple LIKE the head of a household. The word “head” means absolute ruler.
Authority in the heavens and in the earth is when the student of the old retains the familiar and melds it into one treasure by the fresh dispensation of the new King.
