Jesus is more often shown as teaching rather than preaching. The art of teaching is to bring the learners from they already know to is yet unknown to them. Jesus speaks of fish, of sheep, of vines, of trees, of water, etc., of things well within the lived experience of his listeners. The Acts opens by telling us that Jesus came to do and to teach. A cynic once described classrooms as places where information is transferred from the teacher’s notebookto the student’s notebook, without passing through the heads of either! Jesus spoke and taught from the heart, and what comes from the speaker’s heart always reaches the listener’s heart. The person and message of Jesus were so united that his words were inspiring and lifegiving.
