Jesus was the Master Teacher. This was recognized by the great leaders of His day, by His followers, and through the ages by Christians right up to today. If we recognize our calling to teaching, even though we might have been trained via methods courses or have come to our positions because of experience and years of study, what better way to gauge our teaching ability than by finding out how Jesus taught and carrying that over into our classrooms today?

This paper will explore the methods Jesus used to get His message across to the people of His day and to teach His lessons to His disciples. This paper could lead to the development of a required course for student teachers on Jesus’ methods of teaching.
