Jesus actually was a great teacher

The disciples asked Jesus “How did the fig tree wither…” “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree…”Matt. 21:20 “Listen and try to understand.”Matt. 15;10  Once again crowds gathered around him, and as usual he was teaching them. Mark 10:1 Jesus asked “But what do you think about this?” Matt. 21:28 As they discussed these things, Jesus himself suddenly came and began walking with them. Luke 24:15

Jesus used illustrations, questioning, discussion, and lecture to get His point across. He didn’t just tell his disciples, He showed them. He let them try and asked them to  apply the ideas He taught to different contexts. He took advantage of teachable moments and turned their informal discussions into learning experiences. Plus He loved them.

Lord, teach me to teach.
