What is the definition of one of Jesus's preachings??

Not sure what you are asking Kyle, but love is the most important thing.
"although I have the prophetic gift and see through every secret and through all that may be known, and have suffient faith for the removal of mountains, but I have no love. I am nothing." 1 Cor.13

As to the preaching of Jesus Christ, read the first public words He spoke in the gospel of Matthew, 4:17
''From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, ''Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.''
Many good people like to dwell on the words He spoke before the disciples, at the Last Supper, etc., --But why would His FIRST public address to the people start with the word repent?
Jesus could have started by saying, ''Love one another as I love you.'' Any number of other beginnings. Astute readers of His divine words will make note of His first sentence --There is nothing at all which bars us from Him, on earth or in the universe, except our own sins. Period. He knew this from the start.
