It has often been said that “A teacher hasn’t taught until a student has learned,” which is attributed to the famous Christian educator Henrietta Mears - one of the most influential Christian leaders of the 20th Century.
But … I have, over a long period of time, wondered if that statement: “A teacher hasn’t taught until a student has learned,” is actually true.
If we play around with the statement we could end up with something like this:
“The Lord Jesus hasn’t taught until His disciples have learned.”
As Christians we believe that no-one, NO-ONE, in history, nor the present time, is as great a teacher than the Lord Jesus. It’s even still acknowledged in our secular culture that Jesus – at least - is considered a great teacher.
However, when we carefully read the gospels, we read that when the Lord Jesus conducted an assessment of His teaching He gave out, at times, pretty low grades to His students who were enrolled in the “Tradesmen to Disciples 101 Course”.
The world’s greatest ever teacher clearly had a difficult class!!
