What are the new and old treasures relative to the kingdom of heaven in Matthew 13:52?
The Greek word gram·ma·teusʹ is rendered “scribe” when referring to a group of Jewish teachers who were versed in the Law, but here the expression is used with regard to Jesus’ disciples who were trained to teach others. The answer will be based on the translations below.
Contemporary English Version Matthew 13:52
So he told them, "Every student of the Scriptures who becomes a
disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like someone who brings out new
and old treasures from the storeroom."
Holman Christian Standard BibleNMatthew 13:52
"Therefore," He said to them, "every student of Scripture instructed
in the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who brings out of his
storeroom what is new and what is old."
From the moment we start reading the Bible, we have the opportunity to collect spiritual treasures from God's Word. As we continue to read, we develop what Jesus described as the "treasure" of old and new truths. God will help us to collect more treasures into our treasure store if we search for them as for a hidden treasure.
Proverbs 2:4-7 NASB
4 If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden
treasures; 5 Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, And
discover the knowledge of God. 6 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His
mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He stores up sound wisdom
for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
