share the most important message on earth: the teaching of the Lord (Acts 13:12). A Bible class teacher also has the most important job of all: teaching the word of God (Acts 18:11). Finally, a Bible class teacher has the rewarding result of saving himself and those who hear (1 Timothy 4:16). Teaching Gods Much of Jesus ministry was filled with teaching and he made Word it his day-to-day business to teach the lost. However, Jesus never let his teaching become dry, boring, or mundane.

Jesus always used a variety of teaching methods to keep his teaching interesting. Jesus knew 1) the who, 2) the what, and 3) the how of teaching. Teaching Gods First, Jesus knew the who of teaching: he knew his students hearts and their Word needs (Matthew 9:4; Luke 6:8; John 2:24-25). Second, Jesus knew the what of teaching: he knew his subject matter and where to find it in the scriptures even though he had no formal education (Luke 2:47;

John 7:15). Finally, Jesus knew the how of teaching: he knew how to use the right teaching method at the right time to get the point across so that the common people heard him gladly (Mark 12:37). Jesus knew how to make each lesson understandable, meaningful, and applicable. Bible class teaching does not have to be dry and boring. Let us examine how we can be More Like the Master in using different teaching methods. Jesus: The Method Behind The Teaching

Jesus taught from different sources. Jesus would often appeal to scripture and other source materials when he taught his lessons. He would use these source materials to begin a point (Matthew 5:2148), to clarify or shed light on a point already made (Matthew 12:45), or to strengthen and give emphasis to what he had said (Matthew 21:13; 22:41-45). Jesus used different sources to be authentic, authoritative, and Jesus: The Method Behind

He use the Scriptures Teaching The Jesus appealed to scripture in his lessons. He came preaching the gospel of God (Mark 1:14) and his lessons were often filled with scripture references. When Jesus first came into the synagogue at Nazareth, he read from Isaiah 61 and then spoke of its fulfillment to the audience present (Luke 4:16-21). Jesus quoted directly from the Old Testament in his teaching ministry (Mat 4:15-16; 12:18-21; etc.) and indirectly alluded to many other Old Testament scriptures (Mat 10:15). Jesus often taught the Jews using the Old Testament as an historical reference point (Mat 12:41-42; John 8:56). There are over 150

references to the Old Testament in Jesus teaching ministry. Jesus: The Method Behind The He use the Natural World Teaching Sometimes Jesus would appeal to the natural world around him to illustrate a point he was making in his lesson. He talked about the sun, rain, wind, earth, birds, flowers, trees, wheat, tares, vipers, oxen, pigs, dogs, sheep, goats, leaven, storms, light, darkness, salt, etc. (Matthew 5:13-14,45; 6:19-29; 7:6-27; 13:3-52; etc.).

Jesus: The Method Behind The He use the Current Affairs Teaching On occasion, Jesus would appeal to current events to illustrate his lessons. He was aware of and alert to the situations of life happening around him and used those events in his lessons. For example, Jesus was aware of the many contemporary traditions and burdens of the Pharisees (Matthew 15 and 23). He was also aware of Pilate killing some Galileans and the tower of Siloam falling on eighteen people (Luke 13:1-5). Jesus:

The Method Behind The Jesus Taught With Literary Teaching Forms Jesus used different types of words to convey his message. Sometimes Jesus spoke with concrete statements (Mat 5:3-9) and at other times, Jesus used short, pithy sayings (Mat 6:21). Jesus also taught with figures of speech like similes (Mat 23:37), metaphors (Mat 5:13-14), hyperbole (Matthew 19:24), proverbs (Mat 6:21; 26:52), puns (Mat 23:24), riddles (John 2:19), irony (Luke 7:35; Mat 16:2-3), sarcasm (Mat 23:24-28), contrasts (Mat 5:21, 27, 33, 38, 43), and paradox (Mat 16:15; Mark 10:43-44). Jesus also used poetic forms where his words and phrases were parallel in Jesus:

The Method Behind The Teaching Jesus Taught With Parables In addition to various literary word forms, Jesus also used a popular teaching method of his day known as the parable. The word parable comes from the Greek word parabole, meaning to cast alongside. A parable, then, is an earthly story that is told (cast alongside) to illustrate a heavenly principle. For example, Jesus entered into a boat on one occasion and taught many things to the people in parables (Matthew 13:1-3; Mark 4:1-2; Luke 8:4). He would often begin his parables with these words: The kingdom of heaven is like

Jesus: The Method Behind The Teaching Jesus Taught With Object Lessons Jesus used object lessons as examples to make truth concrete, vivid, and attractive. He used a child to teach humility (Matthew 18:1-4) and he used a coin to teach responsibility (Matthew 22:15-22). Jesus used object lessons as visual aids for his Jesus:

The Method Behind The Teaching Jesus Taught With Symbolic Actions Jesus used actions as well as words in some of his lessons. For example, he drove the money-changers from the temple (John 2:13-22; Matthew 21:12-13), he wept over Jerusalem (Luke 19:41-44), and he girded himself with a towel and washed his disciples feet (John 13:4-15). Jesus: The Method Behind The Teaching

Jesus Taught Discourses With Jesus used formal discourse or lecture at times to teach his lessons. He spoke for awhile and his students listened like in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), his lesson on hypocrisy (Matthew 23) and judgment (Matthew 24-25), or his farewell discourse to the apostles (John 14-17). Jesus used discourses to teach a large body of material at one

Jesus: The Method Behind The Teaching Jesus Taught With Questions Jesus used the Socratic question-and-answer method of teaching to get and hold attention. Jesus was used to asking and answering questions from an early age (Luke 2:46) and he used this method of teaching in his own ministry. Nearly 300 questions of Jesus can be found in the gospels. The following scriptures contain just a few of the many questions of Jesus: Matthew 6:30; 16:13-15; 21:25; 22:42-45; Mark 2:26; 3:4; 8:27-29; 10:18,36,38; Luke 6:9,46; 9:25; 10:26, 36; 11:11-13; 12:24-26; 13:14-16; 14:28; and John 8:46; 14:9-10; 21:15.

Jesus: The Method Behind The Teaching Jesus Taught Discussions With Jesus would often discuss his lesson with his students and allow them to respond to what he was saying. He did this with Nicodemus (John 3), with the woman at the well (John 4), with the rich young ruler (Mark 10:17-22), and with his own apostles (Matthew 11:2-19).

Jesus used one-on-one discussions in his lessons to get people to respond on their own and take a personal part in Jesus: The Method Behind The Teaching Jesus Taught With Logical Arguments Jesus used logical argumentation in his teaching. He argued from the lesser to the greater (Matthew 6:28-30). He argued using the tense of a verb (I am) (Matthew 22:32). He argued against logical inconsistencies (Luke 13:15; 14:5). Other forms of logical argumentation can be found here: Matthew 7:9-11; 10:28-31; 12:11-12; 22:43-45; Luke 18:1-8; and John 13:14.

Jesus used logical arguments to prove the validity of his lessons. The Christians and the teaching method Christians who seek to teach like Jesus should know the who, the what, and the how of teaching. We can know who we are teaching by asking questions of our students like Paul did to the Ephesians (Acts 19:1-3). We can know what we are teaching by giving diligence to rightly divide the word of God (2 Timothy 2:15). And we can know how to teach effectively by following Jesus teaching methods described in this lesson. The Christians and the

teaching method Paul wrote to Timothy, Till I come, give heed to reading, to exhortation, to teaching (1 Timothy 4:13) and Take heed to yourself, and to your teaching. Continue in these things; for in doing this you shall save both yourself and them that hear thee (1 Timothy 4:16). Note what Paul wrote concerning teaching. He said, give heed and take heed. It is good to give heed and take heed to ones teaching. A Christian can pay attention to teaching and focus on teaching the best way possible. More like the master in his teaching Method When we teach Gods word today, we need to teach like Jesus did so

that the common, ordinary people can hear and understand. A Christian who decides to teach Gods word needs to give all to teaching and utilize whatever (scriptural) method it takes to achieve that goal. Paul wrote: And having gifts differing according to the grace that was given to us let us give ourselves to our ministry; or he that teaches, to his teaching (Roman 12:6-7). Let us be More Like the Master in our teaching methods. Questions 1. What is the who, the what, and the how of teaching as described in the introduction of this lesson? 2.
