These core teachings are not all that Jesus taught. But they do give to Him, and they give to us all, a comfortable place to begin.
The two-thousand-year-old teachings of Jesus were incorporated into the Christian Bible, but have been almost entirely ignored in establishing the teachings of the Christian church.
The Gospel Books of Matthew and Luke contain Sermons which are in part duplicates of one another, and which have come to be called The Sermon on the Mount and The Sermon on the Plain.

Even if we assume that Jesus is an eternal Being who was born as the literal Son of God, it is important to point out His areas of unusual knowledge, and the ways in which the culture limited Him.
We have the teachings of Jesus stated clearly enough that we are confident about hearing and understanding now what He was communicating.
Teachings by Jesus is a website devoted to the teachings of Jesus
As Jesus spoke them.
Two thousand years after He lived on earth,
Jesus is the most popular person on earth.
He heads the most prominent religion on earth.
But you may be surprised to learn that in the churches,
they don’t teach what Jesus taught.
Here on Teachings by Jesus, we talk only about what Jesus says.
And we think you are going to love every word!
Jesus does not say that He came to die for our sins.
Jesus does not talk about hell, or give you any reason to be afraid.
Instead, He says that He and God purely love you.
Jesus says that neither He nor God ever judges you.
He says that He came to teach you how to live your own best life
And how to bring the kingdom of God on earth.
And all of these beautiful truths have been in your Bible all along!
Teachings by Jesus has a companion book called
The Fun of Loving Jesus – Embracing the Christianity that Jesus Taught.
It’s available wherever books are sold.
Roberta Grimes had an amazing experience of light at the age of eight that was something like Moses’s experience with his burning bush and Paul’s experience on the road to Damascus, which prompted her to begin to read the Bible from cover to cover beginning in childhood. She majored in early Christian history in college, and then she spent fifty years researching the afterlife so she is prepared to answer a wide range of questions. What is wonderful, too, is that although Jesus should long since have ascended, He remains on the entrance level of the astral plane and if a question interests Him, He will sometimes answer it personally.

We are told that Jesus is now in the process of returning. He is separating His name and image from the religion of Christianity, which is a necessary first step since He has never had anything to do with the religion that is now in decline. This website is a part of that process. Jesus intends to spread His teachings on earth, but we believe that He does not plan to return in a material body.
There never was an entity that had the characteristics of a devil that seduces humans into sins and evil deeds. The Old Testament portrayed a being subservient to Yahweh, the Hebrew God, but this entity did not insite people to evil deeds. Christianity developed the devil myth with some influence from the Persian religion, Zoroastrianism. This devil figure had an army of demons whose job was to sow dissention and promote immoral behavior. However, there is no such being as the devil.
The myth of hell as a place of torment where people are sent for eternity developed in Christianity after Yeshua’s death in c. 30 CE, but it does not appear in the Old Testament, the New Testament, Yeshua’s teachings, the Acts of the Apostles, Paul’s epistles, or the other epistles in the canon. It evolved over the first two centuries CE to keep the parishioners in line and scare people into converting to accepting the tenets of the developing Christian church.

Jesus calls us o’er the tumult of our life’s wild restless sea; day by day his voice still calls us saying, ‘Christian, follow me.’ As of old Saint Andrew heard

Jesus said many things that are individually memorable, and often they are
more complex than they seem to be when we first read them. We post one of
these thoughts of His each day as His little gift to you.
