the life of jesus
The Life of Jesus

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. Luke 2:52

jesus heavenly character
Jesus’ “Heavenly” Character

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. Luke 2:52

James, Jesus’ half brother grew up with Jesus and wrote these words:

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”

James 3:17

  • Jesus shows us the wisdom which comes from God
  • Jesus’ character was like that of his Father in heaven
  • Jesus showed men and women what God is like by the way he lived
the ministry of jesus
The Ministry of Jesus
  • When Jesus was 30 yrs old he left home
  • For 3 and a half years he traveled through Israel telling them about God’s salvation – that he was the Son of God and he was sent to save them
  • Those who believed and followed him were called “disciples”.
  • From these disciples, Jesus chose 12 special men to closely help him with his work. These men are also called “apostles”
  • The disciples helped Jesus preach the message of salvation, which is called the “gospel” or “good news”

But when they believed Philip as he preachedthegood news of the kingdom of Godand the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.Acts 8:12

the teaching of jesus
The Teaching of Jesus

They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach.

The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law.Mark 1:21-22

the holy spirit power 1
The Holy Spirit Power (1)
  • To help Jesus do God’s work, God gave him the Holy Spirit, or a special power, to Jesus
  • Jesus did many wonderful things with this power that the Bible calls “miracles”
  • Jesus could produce food, heal sick people, and even raise the dead
the holy spirit power 2
The Holy Spirit Power (2)
  • God had given the Holy Spirit power to other men before in small amounts
  • But Jesus was the only man who was given “unlimited” power
  • Jesus never misused this power; he only used it to do the work of God.

Jesus gave them this answer: "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.

For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does…

For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.

John 5:19-21

what was the purpose of jesus teaching and miracles
What was the purpose of Jesus’ teaching and miracles?

Luke 5:24

But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins He said to the paralyzed man, "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home."

To show that Jesus had the power and authority from God to forgive sins (i.e. to be the savior of the world)

most people did not want jesus as their savior
Most people did not want Jesus as their Savior
  • Unfortunately most of Israel were not interested in Jesus’ teaching. They did not love him as their savior
  • They only wanted him to make life easy for them by his “miracles”, which fed them or cured their diseases
  • Jesus appealed to such people in the following way:

Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.

Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval."

Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?"

Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."John 5:19-21

  • Many times Jesus used “parables” to teach the people
  • Parables are stories with a hidden meaning
  • They are about the Kingdom of God and how we must prepare for it now.

One of Jesus’ parables:The Merchant looking for fine pearls

The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.

When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it. Matthew 13:45-46

  • The Kingdom of God is more important than anything else in life
  • When we find out about it we have to put it first.
  • It is the most precious thing we can have
jesus completed his father s work
Jesus completed his Father’s work
  • Jesus used all his strength and energy in preaching the gospel
  • When he died, he was still a young man, but looked much older because of all the hard work he had done for God
  • He was able to say the following when he talked to God in a prayer:

I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. John 17:4
