    Jesus taught that the kingdom of God was 'at hand' because he was about to become king! He wanted people to know how they could enter the kingdom, and why it was worth seeking.

    Haha, opinion or factual things of what Jesus Christ taught?

    Jesus Christ taught the thoughts that come from the heart are what (evil) defiles a human being: (Mark 7:20-23)

    Jesus Christ taught and commanded his disciples to do many things.
    Disciples - Thompson Chain Reference -

    Jesus Christ taught that He was the way the truth and the life; (John 14:6)

    Jesus Christ taught to forgive enemies : (Matthew 5:44)

    Jesus Christ taught to forgive always: (Matthew 18:21-22)

    Jesus Christ taught about how to pray and talk to God : (Luke 11:1-13)

    Jesus Christ taught about the Holy spirt that would come and dwell in a believer; which is sent by Jesus from His Father. (John 15:26)

    Jesus Christ taught about two resurrections : (John 5:29)

    Jesus Christ teaches about how can the blind person lead another blind person: How can you judge another person when you are guilty of the same things ~ (Matthew 7:1-5)

    Jesus Christ teaches anyone who believes on Him shall receive eternal life (John 3:14-20)

    Jesus Christ was said to be the light of mankind: (John 1:4)

    Jesus Christ taught about ; how believers are to Love God, and Love Others (Matthew 22:36-40)

    Now with all this being said; There is a lot of context when it comes to the bible and that context also needs to be taken into consideration: Such as who is being talked to and what is being said by Jesus Christ and all of these things which people who desire to know more may go and check out. But these are just some of the the few things Jesus Christ had taught according to the Christian scriptures.

    Thank you for question!

    There are so many different things :p Salty booger.

    I think Jesus's words, first and foremost, teach that one can be critical and question established religious norms. I believe a goal of his ministry was to critique the monetization of his society's religion as well as social inequality and social hierarchy.
    I find it interesting that these very problems exist in the churches that have been founded in His name. Imagine the criticisms Jesus might have for Christianity today.

    I find what Jesus taught is found at Luke 4:43; Luke 8:1 to preach (and teach) about the 'Kingdom of God'.
    God's Kingdom is the real kingdom government to come as found at Daniel 2:44-45 ( thy kingdom come...)
    Come and govern over the world with Jesus being King/Ruler of God's Kingdom government for a thousand years.
    To demonstrate what God's government will do for humanity is the 'healing' work Jesus preformed - Matthew 4:23.
    Thus, Jesus was giving us a sample preview, or a coming attraction of what Jesus will be doing for humanity on a grand-global scale.
    Jesus was teaching that the world we see today is temporary, but the world to come (Jesus 1,000 year reign over Earth) will bring permanent blessings for the 'healing' of earth's nations as found at Revelation 22:2.

    Not the teachings of the Jesus found in the Bible, rather Jesus taught to worship his God - John 4:23

    This is how I see it in a nutshell. Jesus taught that man is a Son of God not a child of the devil.

    “God is your Father, and religion —my gospel—is nothing more nor less than the believing recognition of the truth that you are his son. And I am here among you in the flesh to make clear both of these ideas in my life and teachings.” Jesus of the UB

    Among other things due to life in selflessness:

    Man need not be slave of his ego.

    Free from this slavery, Man need not fight another.

    Not fighting, Man can better distinguish between his needs and his wants.

    Knowing his needs from his wants, Man can better remember that his needs are not many and that they need not be acquired at another’s expense.

    Then, “a few fish” may once more feed the “many” and Man will find his way back to a state of inner peace.
