Teachings of Jesus
Jesus Christ’s teachings are highly revered by people of all communities. Christ has taught people how to live godly lives. As he traveled around Israel, Jesus taught with sermons and parables (a short story with a spiritual meaning).
Jesus delivered his most famous sermon on a mountain, where he taught his listeners to:
- Love your enemies.
- Do not judge others.
- Trust God.
- Don't be anxious about tomorrow.
- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you (The "golden rule")
A popular parable of Jesus is about two builders. One was wise, and the other was foolish. The Wise man built his house upon a rock; the foolish built his house on sand. When a storm came, the wise man's house stood, but the foolish man's house fell.
The significance of the story is that whoever obeys Jesus is like the wise man. Whoever disobeys his words is like the foolish man. Jesus taught with many parables. Some were easy to understand, and some were difficult.
