Jesus – the teacher

.

INTRODUCTION

At Catholic Mass July 17,  Mark 6,30-34 is read.  After the disciples had anointed many with oil and laid John the Baptizer’s body in a tomb, they went to talk with Jesus. Jesus and the disciples went together to a  deserted place but as many from “different cities” came to Jesus, he decided to teach them “many things”.

I remember John 16:12 that said:

“I have yet many things to tell you,
but you can’t bear them now.”

He taught “many things” but could not teach everything he knew, maybe about physical laws and the Universe.

I have indexed much of his teaching on a separate page.

You also find much of his teaching in my posts in the category “Kerygma”.

Mark 6,30-34 says:

“6:30 The apostles gathered themselves together to Jesus, and they told him all things, whatever they had done, and whatever they had taught. 6:31 He said to them, “You come apart into a deserted place, and rest awhile.” For there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
6:32 They went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves.
6:33 They saw them going, and many recognized him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came together to him.
6:34 Jesus came out, saw a great multitude, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd, and he began to teach them many things.”
