    In reading through the gospels, one can see Christ 'teaching' in the synagogues at various times. When comparing the requirements for teaching elders in the epistles, i.e. ordination, etc. do u believe Christ had an actual appointment with His local synagogue? Was He actually given the title of Rabbi or was that a term of endearment from His followers alone?

    Careful you don't confuse post-temple rabbinic concepts to pre-destruction time periods.

    I think that as He was often addressed as such, coupled with -for example- Luke 4.15ff, it is safe to assume He was a recognized teacher/authority in the synagogues.
