(John 3:2) And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their syna- gogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, healing all man- ner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people (Matthew 4:23). Jesus had a three-fold ministry while on this earth: teaching, preaching, healing. There are twenty-four references to His teaching, and fourteen to his preaching in the Gospels. What is the difference between teaching and preaching? Perhaps only that teaching calls for deliberation, thought, meditation, and memorization, while preaching calls for an immediate response. It is difficult to keep the two separate; one often flows into the other. Jesus is the Master Teacher. The manner, form, and materi- als of His teaching have been studied for two millennia. No one every spoke like He did: And it came to pass when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doc- trine; for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes (Matt 7:28, 29). To catalogue His teaching would be difficult. We would need to study all four of the Gospels, the Book of the Revelation, and much of the Epistles. We will take time to briefly consider the content and style of His teaching. As for the content of His teaching, His topics were far- reaching. The Father, Himself, the Holy Spirit, Scripture, the Kingdom of God, money, love, marriage, heaven, hell, man, sin, Satan, death, prayer and prophecy are just a few of the topics of Jesus' teaching ministry. Jesus spoke in no uncertain terms. He referred to the Pharisees pointedly: hypocrites, fools, serpents, blind men, and whited sepulchers full of dead men's bones. He referred to King Herod as a fox (or more accurately, to the king's wife as a vixen). He declared Himself to be the only Way to God. He declared Himself to be God (Before Abraham was, I AM," John 8:58). He promised the dying thief that he would see him in Paradise. He promised that He would come again! As for the style of His teaching, it was often brief and to the point. He was able to say much in just a few words. We have the record in the Gospels of many of His pithy sayings. Here are just a few: Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father, but by Me. I and my Father are one. If ye love me, keep my commandments. Ask and it shall be given unto you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. Ye are the light of the world. Ye are the salt of the earth. Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Finally, He often used parables. A parable is an earthly story that holds a heavenly meaning. There are some forty parables recorded in the Gospels. Many of them are c0m: monly known: the sower and the seed; the prodigal son; the rich man and Lazarus, for example. Jesus is indeed the Master Teacher. If it has been awhile since you have read one of the four Gospels, let me urge you to do so. You will be amazed at the wonderful words of life offered by the Lord Jesus Christ.
