Jesus, our teacher: 19 January 2014

Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him. — John 3: 2

Message

Jesus Christ is our teacher. Let us listen to Him. The New Testament relates that Jesus came to many places to teach (Matthew 11:1). Our Bible text is just one example. When He met up with the scholar and Pharisee Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews, and taught him about the rebirth out of water and the Spirit, Nicodemus answered the Lord with the words: “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God” (John 3: 2). Here it becomes clear that Jesus is a teacher who cannot be surpassed because God is with Him. He Himself says: “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me”. (John 7: 16).

Core Points

God teaches the way of life. The greatest teacher is Jesus Christ. His doctrine comes from God. Even today the Lord Jesus teaches us, specifically through the Holy Spirit.
