Jesus' Teachings
 

This study is entirely from the book of John. This study will help one to know the teachings and sayings of Jesus and develop a deeper conviction about Jesus.

1. John 3:1-5
1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council.
2 He came to Jesus at night and said, "Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him."
3 In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."
4 "How can a man be born when he is old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!"
5 Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.


Here we see that Jesus even taught the teachers!

Jesus said, you have to be born again to enter God’s Kingdom. Means you have to start your life all over again. Do you want to be born again? Well Jesus gives you a chance to start your life all over again!

2. John 3:16-18
16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.


God loved the whole world not only Christians! Jesus came for all people! Many people believe Jesus is a Christian God. But the Bible here says Jesus came for everybody in the whole world.

God does not want anyone to perish (be destroyed). He wants all men from all backgrounds, caste, and religion to be saved.

They can only be saved if they believe in Jesus.

3. John 5:5-6
5 One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to get well?"


This man has been suffering for 38 years.

We have been suffering spiritually in sin for so many years. If Jesus came here and met you he would ask, “Do you want to get well”? Do you want to change? What would you say?

This is probably your only chance in life. Don’t miss this opportunity!

4. John 6:35
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.

Jesus nourishes those who come to him. Jesus pointed to himself as the source of spiritual nourishment.

5. John 8:12
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Jesus is the Light. If you follow Jesus you should come out of darkness completely. Are you today in darkness or in the light? If you are in the darkness Jesus can bring you into the light.

6. John 8:46
Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don't you believe me?

Jesus was without any sin! He openly challenged people to prove him guilty.

7. John 11:25
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;

Jesus is the resurrection. He is promising eternal life.

It is not reincarnation that Jesus is promising. Because after death there is only waiting for Judgment and no rebirth – Heb 9:27.

Jesus gives us the hope of resurrection, because he himself was raised from the dead. Jesus promises eternal life to all his followers.

8. John 12:48
There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day.

The words Jesus spoke are going to judge us on the last day (the Judgment day). We have to be serious about not only reading and learning his words but also obeying them.

9. John 20:29
Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

None of us have seen Jesus. If we believe in him we will be blessed. So put your trust in Jesus. Put your faith in Him!

10. John 14:6
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Jesus is saying He is the WAY. The ONLY WAY. Means there is no other way to Heaven. You can try but there is no other way. Jesus is the TRUTH. The Complete TRUTH. All religions have some truth, but the complete truth you find in Jesus. Jesus is the LIFE. . Only through Jesus we have eternal life.

CONCLUSION:

C: There is no one like Jesus. Jesus is THE ONLY WAY.

Q: Do you believe that Jesus is the only way? Do you want to follow Jesus?
