Overview

The teachings of Jesus are generally neglected in Churches in North America. A variety of dispensational schemes place them in the future or the past. An distorted emphasis on Jesus as savior puts them out of the realm of the church entirely, and the general materialism of this age finds them a nuisance at best.
On the other hand, other groups regard Jesus' teachings as a blueprint for social action or personal betterment. Neither Jesus nor Paul saw them this way.
The book begins with a look at Jesus' place as the Word of God. He is called that because the Father had something to say, and Jesus was the message. Jesus learned from the Father while He was here on the earth, and what He learned from the Father is what He taught. He continually refers to the importance of His teaching, emphasizing the divine origins of His words and their centrality to the purposes of God. To take Jesus without taking His words is a denial of His role while He was here, and a gross misunderstanding of His purpose in going to the cross.
We examine the place of Jesus' teachings through out the Bible and Church history: the Old Testament bears witness to them, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit bore witness of them, they were central in the early Church and in the Church up until modern times.
In the second part of the book we examine the modern religious mind and its religious crusade against religion. We also examine dispensationalism, Biblical literalism, the place of the ministry, the centrality of the Body of Christ in Jesus' teachings, and the place of Jesus' teachings in the persecuted Church.
The church of our day has marginalized itself because it has failed to take Jesus' words seriously, regarding them as na�ve or idealistic. We call believers back to a consistent, Bible based faith rooted in the whole word of God and a faith that takes seriously what the Son of God has said.
