Metaphysical meaning of scribes (mbd)
Meta. The scribes of Mark 1:22 represent the thoughts that come to us from other personalities or from books. The scribes of the 7th chapter of Mark are our external religious thoughts.
There is a faculty of the mind that receives and transcribes upon the tablets of memory every wave of thought that touches the consciousness, whether from the flesh or from Spirit. This faculty is Ezra the scribe; it may be exalted to a point where it will receive impressions from the spiritual side only.
