Did Jesus teach like the religious leaders of his day?
No. He did things differently and got the attention of his target audience. He also got the attention of his “competitors” and their crowd.
Did Jesus teach his disciples in such a way as to encourage them to do things they’d never dreamed of doing?
Yes. Just like in the 1988 movie Stand and Deliver, Edward James Olmos’s character, Jaime Escalante, and Jesus try to get their students or disciples to change the way they’ve been thinking. I’ll review Stand and Deliver on my blog this weekend.
But right now, go to Seek God With Me and find out what Jesus taught and where he taught it. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John agree that Jesus taught with authority and courage. He made a difference in the lives of his students. Join me and find out why.
