The Greatest Teacher

Dream Teacher

You can choose any person from history to teach you any topic you want. Who’s your teacher, and what do they teach you?

These prompts are framed in such a way as to let the imagination run wild. This one I can’t claim to have such an imagination. It is too obvious; it is clearly Jesus. I don’t want that to sound like a Bible thumping fundamentalist (please, I don’t wish to offend, but sometimes they come off as being self-righteous and arrogant). My reasons are measured and reasoned.

He spoke and taught simply and direct. He ask questions to be sure you understood. He never used himself as the all wise and knowing authority but attributed everything to his Father and what was written. ( Matt. 13:34; Matt 18:18:2-4; Marks 12: 14-17; John 7:16) He maximized every word and thought to have the greatest impact and most lasting results (last count around 1,981 years.)

Today I can read his teachings from the Bible and the lessons can have the same impact as they did then. Amazing!
