Study: Seeing Jesus as Teacher in the Curriculum of Life

Christians are called to be disciples, or students, of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is study, a lifelong practice of learning and unlearning that draws upon knowledge that is available to us at any moment, says Matthew Myer Boulton of Harvard Divinity School. To be a disciple, he adds, is to pay attention to the "curriculum all around us" and see Jesus as our teacher. Boulton's 8 1/2-minute video reflection is available on the website of The Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, an initiative that promotes 12 key Christian practices that embody the wisdom of Christian faith as a way to feed the spiritual hunger of contemporary seekers. A downloadable PDF-formatted discussion guide accompanies the video.
