Was Jesus a Great Moral Teacher?
Of all the world’s great men, Jesus has been considered the supreme example of moral perfection in both his character and his teaching.
Jesus obeyed all of God’s commandments. And he selflessly demonstrated love and compassion to the needy.
Historian Will Durant said of Jesus that “he lived and struggled unremittingly for ‘equal rights.’‘
Jesus’ impeccable moral character was reflected in his teaching. Whereas most moral teachers spoke of rules to live by, Jesus taught that our priority should be to love God and others above ourselves. A trait he continually demonstrated.
