Jesus - the Guru # 1

Finding a Master Worth Following


If we are to make any real progress in our spiritual life, we know we need a guru, a spiritual master.  We need someone to show us the way, to challenge and correct and guide and help us. We can only progress as far spiritually as our guru can take us.


God knew this too. This is why He sent us Jesus.  This study of the Gospel of Matthew guides us to see what Jesus taught His first disciples.  We also see what He wants us to learn. He calls us today also to be His disciples.  


Is He worthy to be your spiritual Master?


Read Matthew 7:28-29:


28When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,29because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.



  • What was it like to be with Jesus, to hear His teaching? 

  • What was so “amazing” to the crowds? 

  • What was the “authority” that they saw in Him?

  • What was so different about Jesus that they wanted to take Him as their Master?


These are the questions we will be seeking to answer in this study of Jesus’ life as given us by His disciple Matthew.
