5-Steps to meeting your student’s needs

According to Bruce Wilkinson’s book, The Seven Laws of the Learner, Jesus was a Master Teacher because he addressed his disciples needs using a five-step model: 1. Seize 2. Stir 3. Stimulate 4. Surface 5. Satisfy. Or if you prefer: 1. Capture 2. Curiosity 3. Consider 4. Climax 5. Content. Of course, these are all apparent in Jesus’ interaction with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well.

It’s just a bummer that Jesus hid these five steps within a complicated story. Imagine how much easier Bible interpretation would be if Jesus would have developed lists instead of told/lived stories. Oh well. It’s probably for the better anyway since the lists would lose their nifty alliteration in the translation.

For the record, the book is probably worth your time. Just keep a few grains of salt nearby…

    Totally. I mean, couldn’t he have made it more true-to-life? 😉

    Well…Jesus didn’t want to be TOO clear….then EVERYONE would have found “THE WAY.”

    Horrors…then there wouldn’t be anyone to shore up my “Imbetterthanyou” notion!!!! [SARCASM]
