More Than A Teacher

“And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings that the people were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as One having authority, and not as the scribes.”  Matthew 7:28-29

Jesus taught differently because He had first hand experience with the Kingdom of Heaven and God the Father.  He and they were one and the same.

Dear Jesus, please help those who only think of You as a great teacher, to understand You are so much more.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

The Master’s Life Lessons

You taught as someone
in the know

the people marveled
how that could be

and if they trusted
taking Your words to heart

their minds and souls were safe
on Your foundational rock.


  1. People often speak of Jesus as a teacher, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it expressed as to part of why he was such a different teacher. Very interesting 🙂

  2. You are gracious! 🙂 I have heard before that it is different being taught from someone who has experienced first hand what they are teaching versus someone who has only learned it through someone else or books. 🙂 It is part of what makes you a good teacher!

  3. i always thought of Him
    as my Father.
    yes He teaches me
    but with love
    so He isn’t simply a teacher
    He’s my amazing Father.

  4. aaahhh! That is so beautiful, Rea! Thank you for blessing me with that! 🙂

  5. the blessing just come
    in full circle.
    please do tell me
    is it enough that i see Him
    as the Father?
    or there must be so much more?

  6. I think seeing Him as the Father encompasses so much. 🙂 As time goes on, your relationship with Him deepens and grows, and you may see Him in other ways too! (Like a Savior, Provider, Healer, Friend, Husband, etc.) Thank you for your faith, which strengthens me!
