Which book of the bible discusses topics surrounding topics on where Jesus recieved his information to lecture? I read Jesus


used to go around to different temples and speak his words to people. What inspired Jesus to do this? What was the foundation that he had learned HIS ideas from? Does this make sense? Basically WHO was Jesus as a person and where and when did he first have the great perceptions ( how he saw things ) to even Begin with? I apologize if this is off topic...I don't know about the books of the bible very well. So, I just wanted to shoot a few ideas out there I guess. I do appreciate and like how you entertained the word, " Study." I wish to follow Jesus because I love him but I also wish to, "Study," the bible ( it's words and their Origins) in order to truly understand them.


Thanks for listening.



Batgirl41 that is an excellent question. It is complex to answer though. The bible teaches that before Jesus came to the earth he was (and still is) God. Philippians 2:7 tells us that Jesus "emptied" himself and was born in the likeness of men. While on earth, Jesus fully relied upon his Father and the Holy Spirit to do his ministry. So to answer your question, where did Jesus get his information from? He got it from his Father. John 1:1 says that Jesus is the Word (Logos) in the greek. Jesus is the personification of God's will, his thoughts, his emotions, his love. Thus if you want to know what God is like, well you look at what Jesus was like. Jesus said "Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father" John 14:9


But Jesus is more than just a man. He created the universe. Anything that has been made, he made it. *John 1:3* He is the creator, He sustains all life. He is the judge. He is the commander of the Lord's Army. He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end, the Alpha and Omega. He is JESUS CHRIST!


The best way to learn more about this Jesus is to study the bible front to back. Jesus is in every book. While you might not recognize him by the name "Jesus" he can be found in every book of the bible.

 Maybe the book of James, Romans, and Job.

I always tell people to start with Genesis. God put it first for a reason.


You've got Jesus creating the heavens and the earth, and the first promise that he would come to the earth and defeat sin and death, all in the first 3 chapters.

 @ batgirl.   I would highly recomend a good study bible.  I have two, the Ryrie Study bible ( NAS) and a MacArthur Study bible(NAS) .  The MacArthur has more notes so I like that a little better.    But remember the bible can mean no more than what it meant to the people it was directed at.     ScriptureTruth dot com is a good place to buy on line.  They have very good prices.  


    A funny story about Charles Ryrie.  My pastor studied under him and now 40 years later as his contempory and friend he still calls him Dr Ryrie.  Said he is not one of those people you call Chuck.    LOL

How about a study of one of the Gospels.  Starting off with the word of Jesus Christ and the plan of salvation.

I'd love a good study of the Gospels, followed by a study of Epehesians.

Which Gospel are you thinking?


We already studied Luke 6 months ago. John is one of my favorites.

I think Genesis and John are both good books.


John is often recommended for newer believers because it helps explain some things.  There are fundamental teachings in this book, but they're given in a way that anyone can understand.


Genesis is good because it provides a great foundation.  I heard a teacher say it like this once - "The Old Testament isn't just a bunch of rules and stories we read.  It is the foundation of and the 'back story' to the New Testament."  While the New Testament does provide Christ's teachings, the Old Testament provides the answers to "where did that law come from?  Why is it that way?" questions. 


I am currently in Job and it is a great book, but it can be hard for newer believers.  Does that mean we shouldn't ever study it?  No, but we may need to work up to something that intense.


I also like James because he gives a lot of words of wisdom to believers.  In the same respect, Proverbs gives words of wisdom to everyone.


Anything from Paul or Peter helps to build up believers and guide us in the way of holy, righteous living so that we can live the life instead of only speaking it.


I'm up for anything - as you may see.

Jude of the OT? You must be thinking of something else. Jeremiah maybe. Or maybe you meant NT.  Jude is only 1 chapter, that would be a very short study.


Genesis is a very long book. That could take awhile. We would have to do 2-4 chapters at a time. What do you all think about doing a OT book and a NT book at the same time?

Holy Cow!  I was thinking about that but didn't know if it was just my ADD brain in overdrive!  A teacher at my church has actually shown how different things in Genesis correlate with the NT.  I find it very interesting!


I agree with Stryker - I would like that too!

I said revelation, mainly because we are living in the last days. It is alway good to study about Christ's ultimate victory, and our blessed hope of eternal life with God the father and Jesus Christ ruling and reigning !! It also will end satan's time of evil and that of his servants antichrist, false prophet, and all demonic activity, because all evil, hell, and death will be cast into the lake that burns with fire and brimestone, for everlasting punishment. While the righteous in Christ will be with Christ for evermore. There will be no more pain, crying, suffering or death, for the father will wipe all the tears from our eyes !! Praise God !!
