Notice: The Elucidation section is a massive work in progress.

An elucidation is the act of explaining or making something clear. This page will be the whole of the Elucidation of Jesus Christ, where we attempt to take every single statement that Jesus uttered and put them in context with the whole of Jesus's teaching, free from the corruption of worldly people. While it's very sparse at the moment, there are a lot of sayings from Jesus Christ, more than about 1,870 verses worth! At the moment, we're about 0.5% done, so please be patient as we write about each of these sayings in detail in the years to come. If you're interested in hearing thoughts about a certain saying earlier than that, feel free to contact us.

Here, we learn what it means to do the will of God and why neither faith nor works matter much. We learn what it means to Seek the Kingdom and why we should hate our lives in this world and never marry. We learn how all the pleasures in life are thorns trying to keep us from wanting to be with God. And so we learn exactly why we are given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God, but everyone else is left out.

These are all difficult sayings from Jesus Christ, and we must be careful not to interpret them with our own mindset, given from this world. Instead, we must see this world as Jesus Christ saw it, so that we may do the will of God and be found worthy of eternal life.
