INTRODUCTION

In the last chapter you learned of the teaching mission of Jesus which is now the responsibility of believers. You studied qualities of His lifestyle which should be evident in your life as a teacher. You learned why, when, where and who Jesus taught. In this and the following chapter you will learn what Jesus taught. Jesus did not have a lifetime to train His disciples.
