“Viewing Jesus as the master teacher, this chapter investigates the pedagogies used by Him in teaching individual New Testament characters. The article aimed to focus on the interactions Jesus had with two of these characters and analysed them in light of each’s specific culture and history. This method of analysis, which is known as cultural historical activity theory (CHAT), is unpacked not only as a means of understanding the mode of Jesus’ ministry, but as a research methodology and a teaching method designed to meet the needs of students in the Christian classroom”
