Introduction

“Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, beside Lake Galilee. Then Jesus began preaching.” Matt 4:13,17

 
Jesus preached to the crowds in the open air; he trained his disciples, he challenged the authority of the religious leaders, and confronted their hypocrisy, and he lived out the values he preached.

 
The conversations Jesus had with His disciples and other people are recorded in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

 

Jesus taught the message of what a Christian should believe and how he should live in relationship to God and our fellowman.

 
The Greatest Commandment
Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:34-40

 
The theme of all of Jesus’ teaching is to love God with all of our hearts and to love one another. Jesus taught us about love and forgiveness. He taught us not to judge others. Jesus taught us to give to the poor and to be careful not to let wealth become too important. Jesus taught us to be genuine and not hypocritical, to pray and to have faith. Finally, Jesus taught us to follow Him and to place our faith and trust in Him.

 
Jesus did not destroy the Old Testament Ten Commandments, He molded them into a new covenant (new commandments) having the same moral values as the old, but now personalized, expanded and empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit.
