“Now when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, He departed to Galilee.
And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali,
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles:
The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.”

After Jesus heard that John was in prison, He went to Galilee.

Matthew 4:17-22 NKJV

“From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.
Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
They immediately left their nets and followed Him.
Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them,
and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.”

Jesus began His ministry by the Sea of Galilee with the message of , “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” It was here that Jesus chose His first two disciples, Simon (Peter) and Andrew. He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They quickly left their nets and followed Him. A short time later Jesus saw two other brothers, James and John, mending their nets. They too, left their nets and followed Jesus.

Matthew 4:23-25 NKJV

“And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.
Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. Great multitudes followed Him—from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.”

Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. His fame spread throughout all Syria; and people brought all types of sick people to Him to be healed.

Jesus Chooses Twelve Men

Jesus was a great teacher while He was here on earth. Jesus taught about God and His love for us and repentance. Great crowds of people followed Him and listened to His teachings.

 

Luke 6:13-16 NKJV

“Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
And when it was day, He called His disciples to Himself; and from them He chose twelve whom He also named apostles:
Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and Bartholomew;
Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot;
Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot who also became a traitor.”

From His disciples, Jesus chose twelve men to be His apostles. We call these twelve men Jesus’ disciples. They traveled with Him everywhere He went and learned from Him. These twelve men helped Jesus spread the Good News. Together they went to temples and synagogues, to hillsides and seashores – anywhere people would gather and listen to Jesus.

Jesus’ Methods Of Teaching

Jesus used several method of teaching. Often He used sermons similar to what a person might hear in church. On other occasions He would use parables. A parable is an earthly story with a heavenly (spiritual) meaning. Jesus used parables to help people understand what He was teaching. Altogether, Jesus taught about 30 parables. Three examples of the parables that Jesus taught are: The Parable Of The Persistent Widow, The Wise And The Foolish Builders, and The Parable Of The Lost Coin.

The Parable Of The Persistent Widow

Luke 18:1-8 NKJV

“Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’” Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

The Wise And The Foolish Builders

Matthew 7:24-27 NKJV

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

The Parable Of The Lost Coin

Luke 15:8-10 NKJV

“Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

The Sermon On The Mount

Matthew 5:1-12 NKJV

“And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him.
Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

The Sermon on the Mount was one of Jesus’ more famous sermons. We refer to this sermon as the Beatitudes. A beatitude is a pronouncement of some blessing that we will receive when we follow Jesus’ example and allow God to shape our thoughts, words, and actions. In that sermon Jesus taught us how He wants us to live when we believe in Him. Also in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus answered several questions about living a Christian life.

Jesus And Children

Matthew 19:13-15 NKJV

“Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” And He laid His hands on them and departed from there.”

Children were important to Jesus. He never turned them away. Once when someone asked Jesus who was the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, Jesus called a little child to stand beside Him

Matthew 18:1-7 NKJV

“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!”

Jesus honored children and sternly said that those who hurt children will be judged.
