The Teacher from God Begins His Ministry —
At 30 years old, Jesus began his teaching ministry in Israel by going from synagogue to synagogue in Galilee. He taught with such power that he was soon called “Rabbi” — a title of respect given to teachers meaning “Master.”
Watch this video produced by Bible Society to see a true-to-life model of the synagogue in Nazareth where Jesus announced the beginning of his teaching ministry as the Promised Messiah sent from God (based on Luke 4:14-21).
Dearest Father, Thank you for sending your own Son to Earth to be our teacher. What a privilege! Help me to be careful to listen and follow his teachings. Amen.
