The Teaching of Jesus

The Teaching of Jesus

(p.94) Part One The Teaching of Jesus
Lectures on New Testament Theology

Peter C. Hodgson

Oxford University Press

The teaching of Jesus is the foundation and presupposition for all that belongs to the history of the development of Christian consciousness. His teaching is religion, not theology, and he is the founder of a new religion. He does not stand above history as such but is one of its decisive turning points. He is profoundly related to Judaism and appears as a reformer of Judaism. His teaching can be only approximately reconstructed from a critical reading of the Synoptic Gospels, especially Matthew. Baur focuses on three topics: the relation of Jesus’ teaching to the Old Testament and to the Law; his moral and religious teaching (with an emphasis on conscience, righteousness, and the kingdom of God); Jesus’ person and his messianic consciousness (he became aware of his messiahship gradually, with only a premonition of his death).

Keywords:   Jesus, Judaism, conscience, righteousness, kingdom of God, Messiah, Son of God
