Christianity Unpacked – Jesus’ teaching

Complete Lesson Resources

When he was 30, Jesus was baptised by John in the River Jordan and started his ministry – teaching people about God and performing miracles. He did this for three years. During this time Jesus’ did not have a fixed home but travelled around from place to place.

As a Jewish rabbi (religious teacher), Jesus had disciples. The most famous were the 12 young men who followed Jesus and shared every part of his life. The Bible also talks about a larger group of followers who he trained to do God’s work, and even mentions some women disciples. Crowds of people also would follow him to hear what he had to say and watch the miracles he performed.
