So they did it day after day, raising funds in abundance. (WEB KJV JPS ASV BBE DBY WBS YLT NAS) However, these uses for writers are found mainly in the Old Testament. The scribes of the New Testament are a special group among Jewish religious leaders. Their main task was to study the law of Moses, teach it to the people, and even help settle disputes over matters of law. The authors of the New Testament trace their origin to Ezra, who is variously called „a writer ready in the law of Moses“ (Ezra 7:6), „a scribe of the words of the Lord`s commandments and his statutes to Israel“ (Ezra 7:11), and „the author of the law of the God of heaven“ (Ezra 7:21). Ezra received these titles because he had „prepared his heart to seek and make the law of the Lord and to teach the statutes and judgments in Israel“ (Ezra 7:10). Ezra was therefore the ideal type for the author of the New Testament. Sometimes one of the choruses is actually omitted, but it may be the author`s fault.

In the passage in Matthew 23 in which Jesus vehemently condemns the Jewish religious leaders, the scribes are mentioned by name eight times. However, towards the end of the chapter (Matthew 23:34), Jesus told the people that scribes were sent by the Lord to encourage them to repent, but that they only received persecution. It was not the writer`s position that was wrong, but his abuse of that position. Nehemiah 8:9Nehemiah, who was the governor, and Ezra, the priest, the scribe, and the Levites who taught the people, said to all men: This day is holy to Yahweh, your God; Don`t cry or cry.

Thus, Ezra was „a writer ready in the laws of Moses,“ Ezra 7:6, 1 Chronicles 27:32. The scribes of the New Testament were a class of men trained to preserve and explain the holy books. They had the task of transcribing them, interpreting the most difficult passages, and ruling in cases arising from the ceremonial law of Matthew 2:4, and were particularly adept at those glosses and traditions by which the Jews annulled the law, Matthew 15:1-6. Jewish writers speak of them as the nation`s schoolmasters; And one of the ways they exercised their function was to meet people from time to time in each city to have familiar discussions and ask questions of law for debate.
