I clicked on the video and read the subtitles, which I appreciate.  But they still don't take me very far toward understanding your take on "Christ has come to teach His people Himself!"

Another possible way to learn of and from Christ, and a very important one, would be the meeting for worship!  I know of Friends who have learned through the ministry of anointed speakers in meetings for worship; e.g., Samuel Bownas, Stephen Grellet, Ann Branson, etc.  Even Max Reich, an Orthodox Jew who wandered into a Salvation Army meeting where Evangeline Booth (General Wm. Booth's daughter) was preaching under an anointing!  Max was so overcome by God's presence that he ran to get out of the meeting.

Since I don't have access to the audio part of my computer, I do not know what message you intend to convey!  If "Christ has come to teach His people Himself" is to be anything more than a soundbite slogan, we need to explain how this teaching is supposed to happen.  Will it take the form of supplying us with a set of doctrinal propositions, presumably based on the Bible, which we can use to guide us in laying hold of God's truth?  Or, will we find ministers' journals and/or other documents that will open heart and mind to the will of Christ?  Or, will we hear His voice--either outwardly or inwardly, to lead, guide and direct us?

I think we could document the experiences of Friends and other Christians, and perhaps of those who are neither, that demonstrate each of these modes of knowing.

So, if a text were available, I would very much like to know what you have to say!
