A teacher is one who instructs and imparts knowledge. It is said that “Experience” is a good teacher and there is no doubt about that, but would we be able to consider Jesus to be a Teacher?
The Bible answers this question. In fact, Jesus was called a “Teacher from God” by Nicodemus, who was himself a ruler of the Jews and master (teacher) of Israel, for Nicodemus recognized that what Jesus taught was not of any man, but of God (John 3:2). The Bible tells us that God (Jesus) will instruct us in the ways that we should go (Psalm 32:8) and Jesus’ disciple, Simon Peter recognized that Jesus held the words of eternal life (John 6:68). In other words, Jesus is the only one who can impart the True knowledge of eternal life (Salvation), which is to know God the Father, the only true God and Jesus, the Teacher whom God had sent (John 17:3). And when you shall know this truth (taught by Jesus through his word), This Truth shall make you free of any bondage, that keeps you from eternal life.
Points to ponder:
Jesus is The Teacher from God who teaches us the way of eternal life. Are you/I as students willing to listen and learn from Jesus The Teacher? Where else can we go? (nowhere) for it is Only Jesus who holds the words of eternal life.
John 3:1-2 (KJV)
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
John 6:68-69 (KJV)
68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
John 17:3 (KJV)
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
