The scribes were learned men in ancient Israel who studied the Law, transcribed it, and wrote commentaries on it. Jesus engaged in discussion with the Jewish Scribes during the Feast of the Passover when he was twelve years old. Alexandre Gabriel Decamps painted a work titled 'Christ among the Scribes' around 1833, while Albrecht Dürer created a painting of the same name in 1503. While some scribes may have been Pharisees, they were largely two distinct groups in the 1st century.
The Master of Delft was a Dutch painter of the final period of Early Netherlandish painting, whose name is unknown. He may have been active in Delft in the early 16th century, and his works can be found in various collections such as the National Gallery in London and Google Arts & Culture. He may also have been employed on woodcuts for book illustrations.
