  • Jesus talked about money more than He did Heaven and Hell combined.
  • Jesus talked about money more than anything else except the Kingdom of God.
  • 11 of 39 parables talk about money.
  • 1 of every 7 verses in the Gospel of Luke talk about money.

The Word Money is actually used in connection with Jesus (whether He uses the word or it is used in connection with Him) approx 25 times throughout the 4 Gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Jesus also speaks of treasure and wealth a handful of time in those books.

But there is one things that is central to His teaching on the subject.

Many contemporary preachers and teachers of The Bible will tell us that Jesus spoke more about money than anything else and this is how they justify wealth and prosperity doctrines.

But the plain and simple truth of the matter is that while Jesus often spoke about wealth, He never spoke about it in the sense that it was something good to become involved with.

A closer look at Christ will reveal that His teaching on the matter of wealth is the polar opposite of todays prosperity teachers.

Jesus always said things like: "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal"

and "You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."

Jesus teaches that we should ignore the way that the world saves and invests, and that we should not be preoccupied with money or wealth.

Jesus teaches that our dependance should be on the LORD and His provision for us.

Jesus spoke about money for sure, but not that it was important to have much of, instead that it was something to give away to those that are in need.
