The Teachings of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ taught many things while He was on earth, the greatest of which was love.

The Beatitudes

Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

Jesus teaches that the kingdom of heaven is for those who humble themselves.

Blessed are the Meek

Those who are teachable, patient, long-suffering, etc., are promised to “inherit the earth.”

Matthew 5:5

Blessed are the Merciful

Jesus said, “Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful,” meaning those who show mercy will also receive it.

Matthew 5:7

Blessed are the Peacemakers

Those who make peace with one another, Jesus said, “shall be called sons of God.”

Matthew 5:9

Blessed are They That Mourn

Jesus promises that those who mourn and turn to Him will find the comfort they seek.

Blessed are Those Persecuted for Righteousness’ Sake

When people are persecuted for living righteously, Jesus declares that “theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 5:10

The Beatitudes were an important part of the Sermon on the Mount. They contain the heart of Jesus’ teachings and show all His disciples how to live like Him.

Jesus was the greatest teacher who ever lived. He often used parables, or stories, to teach important lessons that we can still learn from today.

The Parables of Jesus

The Laborers in the Vineyard

Jesus taught that all who choose to come unto Him and labor in His work can have the opportunity to receive equal blessings. (Matthew 20:1-16)

The Unforgiving Servant

Jesus taught us the important lesson of forgiveness by asking, ”Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee?” (Matthew 18:33)

The Good Samaritan

Jesus said that we should love our neighbor, and the parable of the good Samaritan teaches us that our neighbors can be anyone, including strangers or foes. (Luke 10:25-37)

The Prodigal Son

Every person who turns to Christ will receive His loving acceptance, regardless of what he or she has done. (Luke 15:11-32)

Restart
The Lost Sheep

Every person who turns to Christ will receive His loving acceptance, regardless of what he or she has done. (Luke 15:11-32)

Jesus performs miracles all the time, even today. The miracles below were performed during His life on earth, and are inspiring accounts that can help us grow closer to Him.

The Miracles of Jesus

He gave sight to the blind

“Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it” (Matthew 9:27-31)

He cleansed the lepers

“And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed” (Luke 17:12-19)

He healed the sick and afflicted

“And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God” (Luke 13:11-17)

He raised the dead

“Behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow … And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up” (Luke 7:12-15)

He turned water into wine

“Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. … And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was” (John 2:3-11)

He walked on water

“And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea” (Matthew 14:25)

Restart
He fed thousands with little food

“And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all. And they did all eat, and were filled” (Mark 6:39-42)
