“Jesus knows everything about everything.”
Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – September 25, 2022
“ . . for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as their scribes. Matthew 7:29
When I think about Jesus, many words come to mind. I think of Him as my Lord, my Savior, my Redeemer, and even my friend. But rarely—if ever—have I thought about Him as my teacher.
Ray Pritchard states the following in an article published by Christianity Today:
“Of the 90 times Jesus was addressed directly in the gospels, 60 times he was called Teacher.”
The multitudes called Him teacher; the disciples called Him teacher, and He called Himself teacher. In John 13:13 He says of Himself, “You call me Teacher and Lord, and rightly so, for that is what I am.”
Jesus is more than a teacher who is present for a short time to share a particular lesson. In his book, “At the Table with Jesus,” Pastor Louie Giglio shares how Jesus can be our spiritual leader and teacher for the whole of our lives.
Unlike other teachers, who can only teach you about particular things because they have limited knowledge, the Lord can teach you all throughout your life from childhood through midlife into old age. Jesus can do this because—as Giglio says—“Jesus knows everything about everything.”
Think about it. No teacher ever taught Jesus. He didn’t get a university degree. He hasn’t ever consulted Google. He never asked anyone a question (other than his Father.) He knows everything there is to know about everything.
What an amazing inspiration and comfort when considering the challenges I have experienced and the unknown obstacles I will experience in the future. I needn’t ever worry about how to solve something. He already has all the answers for me—and for you. In this way, He has “gone before” us and the answers are already waiting for us in the future.
Jesus knows it all and there won’t ever be a time when He doesn’t know it all. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End and all things have been created by Him and for Him.
In John 16:30 the disciples said to Jesus, “Now we know that You know all things, and have no need for anyone to question You; by this we believe that You came from God.”
Jesus teaches us not to put us in our place or to make us feel small. He teaches us because He made us, He knows what’s best for us, and He knows what we need.
He is an amazing and loving teacher.
“When Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things” (Mark 6:34).
Lord, thank you that you know all things. There isn’t a problem I will face or a question I will ask that you will not have the answer for. I also praise you Lord, that you will be my teacher for my entire life. You will always have the answers I need no matter my age or situation. Amen.
How does reflecting on the truth that Jesus knows everything about everything make you feel about any future troubles you will face or questions you will have?
