The greatest teacher known to man no longer walks this earth
But in His day had much to say about our spiritual birth.
His name was not Confucius or Socrates or Buddha
Mohammed, Zoroaster or even Hari Krishna.
Though similar their teachings, all claimed their words were truth
But teachers needed students and students needed proof.
Yet proof is hard to come by when trust is put in man
A house not built on solid ground will sink into the sand
The greatest teacher known to man had much to say on this
It isn’t that surprising that others took His gist.
To remove a speck from someone’s eye, first take the beam from yours
In other words don’t judge unless you’re absolutely sure.
Confucius had disciples called People of the Ren
The greatest teacher known to man would rid the world of sin.
Buddha said that other’s faults are easier to see
The greatest teacher known to man would die at Calvary.
The lives that others taught of, ended in the grave
The greatest teacher known to man was after three days, raised.
Socrates reported, its wisdom that we lack
Acknowledging the shortage is a way to get it back.
The greatest teacher known to man will never be outdone
His creation has the choice to determine right from wrong.
The greatest teacher known to man, a title well-deserved
He was the greatest teacher . . . yet He was a student first.
