The Teacher

Matthew 7:28-29 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law (NIV)

My favorite teacher was Miss Black. She taught 10th grade chemistry.  She was my favorite because she was passionate about her subject.  She conveyed her passion to us because she wanted us to be passionate about it also.  Jesus is addressed as the teacher 43 times in the 4 gospels.  He was (and still is).  He was passionate.  Passionate about His Father and passionate for those He taught to be passionate about His Father.  Not only was and is He passionate, He was authoritative.  He was authoritative in a way no other person was or ever can be authoritative.  When we teach we are sharing what we have been taught by others.  Jesus teaches what He has personally experienced.  All of our scientific knowledge and historical knowledge always has room for doubt because of possible misrepresentation.  What Jesus says never has doubt.  Jesus taught the actual facts about God and about God’s creation and the way and why and what of mankind.  After Jesus returned to the Father He sent His Holy Spirit to give about 40 writers the words He taught to record the in books collected in the one book we call the Holy Bible.  When we open those pages, the Holy Spirit is still here to give us understanding of the words of Jesus.  All we need do to experience the best teacher that ever was, is or will be is open those pages each and every day, read, meditate and open our minds to the Holy Spirit.  He will give us all instruction, understanding and wisdom we need to have a full, abundant life and glorify the Father through our lives.
