The Teachings of Jesus

Updated on April 30, 2017

He was not born to this world to become famous even though He was, He did not seek out fame or riches in His life. He tried to enlighten the human spirit with the love of His Father in Heaven through His Teachings. Even if you don't count all the miracle Jesus did, many say that just with His teachings alone He could easily be coined one of the greatest moral philosophers. He wanted his teachings not only to be something for you to think about but something for you to acted upon, has Jesus once said, “He who hears my words and does not do them is like a foolish man who builds his house on the sand." Jesus made many famous statements throughout His life, like "turn the other cheek", "go the extra mile", "love your enemies" or "Do to others what you want them to do to you" , But is that not what we would expect from a friend to treat you has you have treated them. But even though sometimes they don’t treat us the way we have treated them just turn your cheek and go the extra mile and treat them the right way, maybe it just may show them what a real friend should act like.

Jesus gives sermons, on many subjects, and His most famous is the Sermon on the Mount . Here is a brief look at this sermon, it gives us a good idea of what Jesus is all about.

The Sermon on the Mount is in short, a body of moral teaching described by a sincere devotion to God, has well as a sincere feeling toward others. We should feel these teachings in our heart because that is exactly where Jesus directs them.

.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness sake, for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus attempts to change people's outlook toward the law of Moses'.

Jesus said,

Don't murder.

Don't even remain angry with anyone

what's more, don't knock down others by considering them fools.

Jesus said, "Do not murder," he didn't only mean, "Try to make it through the day without killing anyone," but he also meant, "Don't knock down others by thinking yourself better than them or keep some anger toward them. Jesus uses the same method with other commands has well, including adultery "If you lust over another you've already committed adultery in your heart", oath taking "Don't swear oaths," but "Let your yes mean yes, and your no mean no", retaliation "If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other as well", and hating your enemies "Love your enemies" and "pray for those who persecute you".

We are all morally challenged in one way or another and should not be going around think we are any better than anyone else or even more righteous than others. We should put all our effort in taking care of our own shortcomings.

Jesus then begins to speak about those who are religious just for public display , which he describes as those who "practice their righteousness before others to be noticed by them." The word Jesus uses to describe this false goodness is hypocrisy, which was a word used to describe actors in a play back in His time, just pretending to be someone they're not. Jesus not only wants us to think about the things He is saying but to act on them by applying them daily in our life.

The Lord's Prayer which Jesus taught us to pray to our Heavenly Father, is a prayer of devotion to God, saying the prayer is asking for God's righteous to rule on earth, as well as God to provide us daily with food, forgiveness, and protection.

Our Father, who art in heaven hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

In Hebrew the word Amen means trustworthy or true, so when we say Amen at the end of a prayer it means we acknowledge what was just prayed for and that God is trustworthy to answer the prayer. And Sometimes Jesus even begins his teaching by saying, "Amen, amen I say to you”, this means what He is about to tell you is worth it’s weight in gold, so listen.

      Hello there! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I hear many plpeoe keep on talking about Monezilax System (google it), but I'm not sure if it is good. Have you thought about Monezilax System? I've heard many unbelivable things about it and my cousin earn a ton of money with it, but he refuses to tell me: (

      Very interesting perspective and great sweet way of spreading the love and meaning of not feeling above others and a kind philosophy of living. Jesus was of course the greatest teacher , even non believer acknowledge this...it just takes a little faith the size of a mustard seed, meaning not much to let Him into our hearts and oh what a reward that is in itself.

      You have a sweet way of drawing encouragement to others by sharing your humble and loving words here.

      Hi Pollyannalana nice to see you, yes i do agree with you, Jesus was not here to impress anyone . He was here on earth to spread the word of His Father and to lay His life down so that anyone who believed in Him would be saved. Glad you enjoyed reading this hub ! Thanks so much for your nice comments and to for stopping by !

      Beautiful writing. I was thinking this morning along these lines. Our savior, the most important person to ever exist did not get anything special on this earth. Many teach they should have this or that in the name of the Lord, but the Lord did not desire special treatment, so why do many of His children? We are only special because of Him. Loved this hub.

      Thanks for writing this. I am disgruntled witht he church and Christians, but have never lost my faith or love of Jesus. In fact, if more Christians acted and spoke like Jesus, there'd be more Christians. Sadly, most of us just pick and choose his words and twist them to our own meanings. Voted up interesting beautiful and awesome.

      I was reading through some of your hubs.. I like them all but this one especially, it is always good to be reminded how bountiful Jesus love is to us, being the inperfect person, and reminding us to love others not just as for face value, but a little deeper than that, even if they are mean and nasty to us. thanks for the hub
