Though Christians acknowledge Jesus as God, and therefore omniscient, we often underestimate the intellectual depth of his teaching. This talk looks at how his teaching frequently involves surprising richness of reference to the Old Testament, and has a depth which is not obvious to those who do not train their ear to listen. It seems that Jesus not only taught in more than one language, but could communicate in ways that aid the memory.
