    Jesus Teaches (& Reteaches)

    Jesus Teaches (& Reteaches)

    In Mark 10, Jesus teaches on marriage. He sees the Pharisees looking for loopholes in the law. Jesus then uses the law to teach his message and uses the whole of scripture to do it. Then, to explain the message he is trying to get across, Jesus uses a narrative from the Old Testament. Finally, when his disciples are still confused, Jesus took time to reteach the lesson to them.

    Jesus the Master Teacher: Sow the Seed

    Jesus the Master Teacher: Sow the Seed

    Study Mark 4 with us. 
    In the Parable of the Sower we learn that people are affected by the seed in different ways. Our job is not to worry about the soil as much as it is to Sow the Seed. In the Parable of the Seed in Mark 4:26-29, the sower doesn't understand how all the growing happens or works. As Bible class teachers, we may not understand or see how we are helping students. Our job is to Sow the Seed. In the Parable of the Mustard Seed, the seed grows into a great tree even though it starts small. Look what we can do if we Sow the Seed.

    4 Ways Jesus Engaged His Learners

    4 Ways Jesus Engaged His Learners

    Jesus used Setting to teach His lesson. Jesus was careful to select the content of His Message and fit it with the context of the lesson. He went where they lived and worked. Think of John the Baptist and Jesus’ Baptism. Think of Peter, Andrew, James, and John and their boat mending their nets as Jesus talked about being fishers of men. 

    Jesus used Visual Aids to enrich His teaching. When he was asked about paying taxes, what did he say? (Matt 22) How did Jesus teach His point about having a Childlike faith (Matt 18:2)?
    Jesus was Very deliberate with his timing. He allowed the listener to get slightly uncomfortable--Mentally and physically. In Matt 15--the people were hungry but he was teaching them what he could provide for the people. Jesus waited until they were uncomfortable when He stilled the storm at sea in Matthew 8. Jesus used wait time to make the men in John 8 uncomfortable. 
    Jesus used Questioning to help His listeners stay engaged. When He was teaching, He was working together with His learners--They were working side-by-side instead of sit-n-get. Usually, Jesus countered with a question that challenged the listener and caused the listener to reflect on the thinking or think logically through a situation.

    Jesus the Master Teacher-Teaching & Learning

    Jesus the Master Teacher-Teaching & Learning

    Can you have teaching without learning? I would say there is no teaching without learning. As a teacher, we have to be careful not to make the lesson or the class about us. But beyond that, we have to have a way to assess student learning. How can i know if I taught them if I don’t know if they learned it? What if there were no students? Would the class have been the same?

These questions are listed in the W column of the chart. During or after reading, students answer the questions that are in the W column.

This podcast has something for experienced teachers as well as those who are just beginning to teach Bible classes. Effective, helpful teaching starts in the heart of the teacher, and Micah suggests ways to use classroom time in a profitable and practical way to accomplish every teacher's goal - helping students to love the Bible and have a desire to dig deeper and study for themselves to gain a greater knowledge of their God and their Savior.
