Rabboni is a form of Rabbi. In Jesus' day it was a term of dignity given by the Jews to their distinguished teachers. The Pharisees loved to be called 'Rabbi'; but Jesus told his disciples, " Do not be called 'Rabbi'; for One is your teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethen" ( Matt, 23:7-8).

In our day rabbi means a Jew trained for professional religious leadership. The ordained spiritual leader of a jewish congregation, the rabbi is an official formally authorized to interpret Jewish law.

The word rabbi comes from a semitic root word meaning "great" or "head". It is only used in the gospels, usually of Jesus. The disciples of John the Baptist also addressed him as rabbi (John 3:26).

Be Blessed.  

Be Blessed. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (Love), I am become as a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vauneth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seekth not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is (Love) charity.
