Jesus did a lot of teaching to different audiences in different places, but the Gospels record only four long multi chapter sermons theologians refer to as The Sermon on the Mount, The Bread of Life Discourse, The Olivet Discourse, and The Upper Room Discourse. Jesus’ teaching in those sermons was radically different from the religious teaching of the day. The audiences were both amazed and confused by His new message and many were unable to accept it. Primarily, Jesus was explaining the New Covenant of Grace and shattering the illusion of self righteousness that people typically have.
Throughout these sermons Jesus makes radical statements that still puzzle theologians today such as, “Do not resist him who is evil, but turn the other cheek.” Or “take the log out of your own eye”. In John 6, He said that He is the “bread of life” and “He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me”. The crowds were quite often baffled at these sayings but they fit well into the context of His sermon.
If you are like me you have heard many sermons or read books that claim to explain the main teachings of Jesus Himself, but come with me and study first hand what He actually taught and meant in His main sermons.
