Nine Experiences Learning
Along with teaching in the synagogues, Jesus created learning experiences for his followers. He taught spiritual truths from everyday life using parables, shocking statements to gain attention, catchy sayings and word plays, poignant questions, and repetition. He taught by example and by practical assignments for his followers with reports on their application.
Jesus was a master of indirect communication thereby causing those who heard his teaching to ponder the significance of his sayings. He used a dialogical method that caused his disciples to reflect on their own experiences in order to deepen their learnings.
