HELPS word-Studies

3547 nomodidáskalos (from 3551 /nómos, "law" and 1320 /didáskalos, "teacher") – properly "a teacher of law," referring to an expert in the Mosiac Law. This person was so highly learned (scholarly) in the Hebrew Scriptures (OT), they had the status of "teaching-jurist" – i.e. a premier "teacher of the Law" who gave "expert theological opinion" on issues in Jewish life and religion.

3547 /nomodidáskalos ("Scripture-lawyer") does not occur in ancient secular Greek (BAGD, Kittel), but is used three times in the NT (Lk 5:17; Ac 5:34; 1 Tim 1:7). It suggests a highly accomplished teacher of God's law, i.e. someone erudite in interpreting the Bible.

[3547 (nomodidáskalos) implies someone with even higher authority than 3544 (nomikós) – i.e. teaching other "Scripture-lawyers."]
