Jesus the Teacher Revisited

From: Volume XVI, Issue 1: Fall 1995 Pages 85-98


The author and his students studied all 125 teaching situations in the four Gospels for insights into the process of teaching employed by Jesus. Employing five categories for evaluation, they identified the primary teaching procedure, the role played by the Holy Spirit, and the type of environment predominately used. The study showed that in about 60 percent of the teaching situations Jesus let the learner initiate the teaching situation. Five guidelines are provided for teachers who today want to follow the example of Jesus.
