Lent Day 8 - He Taught Them

Lent Day 8 - He Taught Them

Concerning Jesus, Mark 10:1 reads “And again, as was his custom, he taught them.”

This passage is so full of meaning. Wherever Jesus was to be found, he was teaching. Again and again, he was teaching. To walk with him, was to be taught by him. To dine with him, was to be taught by him. To recline with him, was to be taught by him. To observe him, was to be taught by him.

In so many of the recorded moments of Jesus’ life and ministry, he was teaching. From the time that he stood up in the synagogue in Nazareth and read from the prophet Isaiah, to the feeding of multitudes, to his raising of the dead, to his healing the woman with the flow of blood, to his commanding unclean spirits to depart from those they tormented, to his early morning prayers, to his calming of the sea, to the cleansing of the temple, to his arrest in Gethsemane, until giving up his breath on the cross, he taught them.

As the Word of God Jesus' teaching made clear what God has always spoken. During this important season, we are encouraged to make time to dwell in the scriptures so we may be taught by him.
