And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine:

For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

- Matthew 7:28-29



Heaven and earth shall pass away: but My words shall not pass away.

- Luke 21:33

For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost.

- I Thessalonians l:5a

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My Name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

- John 14:26


During Christ's ministry on earth, He personally taught by word and action. From the time of His baptism, at the age of thirty, Christ began His official work - "preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God" (Mark 1: 14b). He confirmed His teaching by performing miracles.

After Christ's ministry on earth, He teaches by means of His Word and Spirit as we read previously in this chapter. Jesus Christ serves as Prophet of His Church from heaven. He has all power to send forth the Holy Spirit to internally apply the truths of His Word - to enlighten the minds and renew the hearts of His children.

Have you experienced your need of Jesus Christ - as heavenly Prophet - to enlighten and instruct you? Do you need Him to teach you the way of salvation?
