    In Matthew 23:10 the NASBU has :

    "Do not be called leaders,for One is your Leader,that is,Christ."

    The only other translations that have like renderings are found in :

    Green's Literal Translation
    God's Word Translation
    Phillips
    Norlie
    Weymouth
    Good News Bible

    The other,more traditional wording is Teacher,or Teachers.

    Apparently "leader" & "Leader" was a somewhat common rendering from the mid-1800s up to about the time of Weymouth (1912), including --

    Campbell's Living Oracles 1835
    Murdock's ("guides" & "Guide") 1851
    Sawyer's 1858
    American Bible Union 1865
    Noyes' 1869
    Julia Smith's 1876
    Rotherham's Emphasized NT 1902
    Worrell's 1904
    Twentieth Century 1904
    Ballentine 1909
    Ferrar Fenton's 1910
    Anderson's 1918

    But also these --

    AMP (in parentheses)
    Basic Bible ("guides")
    Stern's Jewish NT
    CEV
    Green's KJV3
    The Message ("Life-Leader")
    ISR's The Scriptures
    A Literal and Consistent NT
    Adam's Christian Counselor's NT
    God's Word to the Nations - NET
    Swann's
    Marshall's Literal English Translation NT
    Cassirer's
    Barclay's
    and perhaps others

    Not exactly mainstream versions --actually very obscure with the exception of five or six. But I should have said :"The only other translations that I have discovered ...that have like renderings are:"

    Vincent argues that kathegetes is literally "leader" or "guide" and others intimate that "teacher" is more of a dynamic translation. I'll check others later.
