From Biblical origins to life today, teaching and learning are a part of the Christian journey. The commandments of God and the life of Israel were communicated from generation to generation through the teaching community (Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Psalm 78:1-8). Jesus embraced the term “rabbi,” which means “teacher.” When Jesus called his followers “to make disciples of all nations,” he also called them to teach new disciples (Matthew 28:19-20).
