Thirty Days of Jesus: Day 20, Jesus as the Teacher

Thirty Days of Jesus: Day 20, Jesus as the Teacher
How can we know God unless He reveals Himself to us? The creation confirms His existence, but what does the creature know of His attributes, Person, or Power? Unless He teaches us about Himself, we will not know. God sent His Son Jesus to earth as a born-babe, to live the full life of sinlessness under the Law, and to teach us about Himself. He was prophesied to die as the atoning sacrifice, and then rise again to receive His people through His work on the cross. Grace abounds.
We are in the section of these verses throughout the series where we examine His works and ministry. Yesterday, we saw the He first emptied Himself. This is the kenosis, and it's explained on Day 19.
Today we see Jesus as Teacher. I mentioned earlier that Jesus' first recorded words in His incarnation was when he was in the temple as a boy. His desperate parents sought him for three days, and upon discovering him there, he said, "Did you not know I must be about my Father's business?" Jesus had been
sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. (Luke 2:46-47).
The following is from the Christian Courier.
Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews, conceded that Jesus of Nazareth was "a teacher" from God, as documented by the "signs" which he did (John 3:2). A wealthy young ruler approached the Lord asking, "Teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" (Matthew 19:16). Even Jesus' enemies addressed him as "Teacher" (Matthew 22:16, 24), though their use of the expression was not always genuine. The Lord is addressed as "Teacher" twenty-nine times in the Gospels. The noun (teacher) and verb (teach) combined are used of Jesus some ninety times. 
Christ's teaching was informative, logical, buttressed by Old Testament evidence, well-illustrated, documented by divine power, original, and uniquely authoritative (Matthew 7:28). When officers once were sent to arrest him, they returned to their superiors empty-handed, exclaiming: "Never man so spoke" (John 7:46). The Lord's various methods of teaching beg for careful study.
