VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. Nevermore be necessary for one to teach, "Know the LORD"
"And it will nevermore be necessary for each one to teach his neighbor and his fellow citizen or each one his brother, saying, Know (perceive, have knowledge of, and get acquainted by experience with) the Lord,"
In Greek, it was rendered, "they shall not" considered as a double negative strengthening the denial, not at all, anymore, by no means, nor ever, never. Teach is "didasko" in Greek word, meaning to teach, to teach one.
We must never (double negative) teach anyone even our neighbors, or our brethren in church, "Know the LORD!" It's forbidden by GOD, because of the double negative that is attached with teaching of knowing the LORD.
The Bible mentioned "to teach" or didasko in Greek about 97 times, and it's always teaching GOD's WORD, not teaching "Know the LORD" for it's already an obvious practice during the Old Testament or Old Covenant, and we are no longer part or covered, or governed by the Old Testament but we're living sacrifices of the New Testament.
Even JESUS Himself never taught people in synagogues to know Him, He taught differently.
Matthew 4:23 (Amplified Bible)
4:23 And He went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news (Gospel) of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every weakness and infirmity among the people.
1. JESUS taught them how to pray:
Luke 11:1 (Amplified Bible)
11:1 THEN HE was praying in a certain place; and when He stopped, one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray, [just] as John taught his disciples.
2. JESUS taught them about His suffering, death, crucifixion and His resurrection:
Mark 8:31 (Amplified Bible)
8:31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must of necessity suffer many things and be tested and disapproved and rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be put to death, and after three days rise again [from death].
3. JESUS taught about the HOLY SPIRIT:
Luke 12:12 (Amplified Bible)
12:12 For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour and moment what [you] ought to say.
John 14:26 (Amplified Bible)
14:26 But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.
The disciples taught the people these things:
1. What JESUS had done and what JESUS had taught, and they taught in JESUS' Name:
Acts 1:1 (Amplified Bible)
1:1 IN THE former account [which I prepared], O Theophilus, I made [a continuous report] dealing with all the things which Jesus began to do and to teach
Acts 4:18 (Amplified Bible)
4:18 [So] they summoned them and imperatively instructed them not to converse in any way or teach at all in or about the name of Jesus.
Acts 5:28 (Amplified Bible)
5:28 Saying, We definitely commanded and strictly charged you not to teach in or about this Name; yet here you have flooded Jerusalem with your doctrine and you intend to bring this Man’s blood upon us.
2. They taught JESUS is the CHRIST:
Acts 5:42 (Amplified Bible)
5:42 Yet [in spite of the threats] they never ceased for a single day, both in the temple area and at home, to teach and to proclaim the good news (Gospel) of Jesus [as] the Christ (the Messiah).
