Teachings of Jesus
Jesus taught people how to live their lives so they could go to heaven. As he travelled around Israel, Jesus taught with sermons and parables.

Sermon on the Mount
Jesus delivered his most famous sermon on a mountain near Capernaum. In it, Jesus taught: Love your enemies. Do not judge others. Do not be anxious about tomorrow, but trust God. Treat others as you would have them treat you.

Jesus often taught with parables. A parable is a story with a spiritual meaning.
     Jesus told a parable about two builders. One was wise, and built his house upon a rock. The other was foolish, and built his house on sand. When a storm came, the wise man's house stood, but the foolish man's house fell. Whoever obeys Jesus is like the wise man. Whoever disobeys his words is like the foolish man.
     Jesus taught with many parables. Some were easy to understand, and some were difficult. Matthew chapter 13 has several parables of Jesus.
