JESUS THE MASTER TEACHER
The ministry of Jesus is described as essentially one of teaching. "And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom..." (Matt. 4:23). At the conclusion of the Sermon on the Mount" the people were "astonished at His teaching" (Matt. 7:28). Nicodemus acknowledged Jesus to be a "teacher come from God..." (John 3:2). Jesus was often called "Rabbi" meaning "teacher" (Mk. 9:5; 11:21; John 1:49).

The mandate to edify the church (Eph. 4:11ff.) implies the use of some kind of method. A method is a system or way of doing something. When it comes to teaching the Bible, what method is to be used? Is it possible that more than one method may be used effectively? May we consider the teaching methods that Jesus used and adapt them to whatever class we might be assigned to teach.
