This is a subsidiary post of Disciples.
We are disciples – that is, learners, students, pupils, even disciplined ones (i.e. ones under discipline).
We have a teacher. He is Jesus – by His Holy Spirit.
He has a text. It is the Bible.
He has a topic. It is righteousness.
Matthew 5:1, 2 – Jesus ascended to heaven. We come to Him by faith that He might teach us of Himself and His ways. See Isaiah 2:1-5 below.
Matthew 23:8 – Jesus is the teacher of us all.
John 5:39 – That Jesus teaches us righteousness means that He teaches us of Himself.
John 13:13 – Jesus is just as much a teacher as He is a lord.
John 14:26 – Jesus teaches us through His Holy Spirit. (See also 1 John 2:27.)
2 Timothy 2:7 – The apostles spoke and wrote, but it was – and is – Jesus who gives the proper understanding of those words.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 – Clearly, righteousness is the subject (i.e. topic) to which all the teaching, reproof, correction, and training in the Scriptures points.
1 John 2:27 – Jesus teaches us through His Holy Spirit – that is, “His anointing.” (See also John 14:26.)
Joshua 1:8 – This verse emphasizes the importance of the textbook God has given us – the text the Lord is using to teach us His ways.
Psalm 81:13 – This is the cry of Jesus the Teacher. He yearns for His people to be true disciples, for that is their calling.
Isaiah 2:1-5 – We go to the Lord to learn His ways…and we learn them from His law (i.e. the Scriptures, which He has left us through His apostles and prophets). See Matthew 5:1 above.
