      When Jesus healed the ear of the soldier after Peter chopped it off. He taught Peter that violence was not the answer..Christ also taught obedience to the Father’s will as we went with the soldiers.

      After he saves the woman who committed adultery he says, “go and sin no more.” She has to make a conscious decision not to sin anymore, so that she doesn’t end up back in the place where she was.

      From Scripture of Jesus, Jesus used adaptive leadership by teaching them how to be role models and sent them out to help people.

      Jesus often used questions and parables to teach and lead. This allowed his followers to think and figure out situations themselves through his guidance.

      John 14:25-26, “I have spoken these things to you while I remain with you. but the Counselor, the Holy Spirit – the Father will send Him in My name – will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.” He prepares the disciples and prepares them to do the job themselves.

      An example from Scripture of Jesus using adaptive leadership is in Luke 6, “if you don’t know where you’re going, if you don’t know who you’re following, don’t you dare set yourself up as a leader because you and your followers will end up in a ditch.”

      In Luke 6:39-42, Jesus is telling the disciples not to be judgemental towards others, but first, judge themselves to see the sin in their own lives, and then they can help others with the sin in their lives.

      Luke 6:42 is a great example of adaptive leadership. Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye.

      I think a great example is Jesus interacting with the woman at the well. He creates a safe environment for her by asking questions that although challenged her, I’m sure, also brought great revelation.

      Jesus is approached by a rich young man and asked how he can inherit eternal life. Jesus interacts with the young man through questions and statements that uncover the real issue in the young man’s heart. The young man is left with a sobering assessment that requires him to take personal ownership and action.

      The example that Jesus gives in Luke 6 is that to be a good leader you must be a good person. This requires working to cultivate your own soul in order to successfully lead other souls.

      When Nicodemus went to Jesus, Jesus immediately responded by making Nicodemus understood from the Scripture what second birth is all about. He continued to probe him in his own studies so that Nicodemus would connect the dot to what Jesus is teaching

      Matthew 16:28-17:13 Jesus’ Transfiguration on the Mount
      It was a sight to behold the disciples had never witnessed before. He prepared them the best their hearts and minds could perceive. In their fear, they fell to their faces. Jesus spoke, “Arise, do not be afraid.” (v7) and gave them instructions not to tell this vision to anyone until the time after His resurrection. They knew they had an enormity of responsibility ahead of them, and in their shock and awe, I believe the Holiness in which Jesus spoke and instructed offered them leadership guidance to adapt to these inundating changes. His position as our leader, then, now, and for all eternity is summed up in my heart from His answer to the high priest in John 18:21 when asked about His doctrine. With Jesus’ reply of a question to a question with, “Why do you ask Me [this]?’ He went right into a directive response by saying, “Ask those who have heard Me what I said to them.” and my favorite part of this verse is when Jesus says of them and of us today, “Indeed they know what I said.” Powerful direction of adapting to all that we have yet to perceive but know, beyond all questions, He is in control and working all things for His glory.

      There are so many. Jesus used parables to teach so that those around him had to use their own understanding and application. He didn’t;t all them what to go and do in so many words as an authoritative leader, he shared stories and then they had to think for themselves and adapt their understanding and decisions accordingly.

      When Jesus feeds the 5000 in Matthew 14, he asks the disciples to bring what they have. Even though they clearly couldn’t have provided enough food for the crowd, they were still asked to contribute and follow Jesus’ adaptive leadership.

      I would suggest the feeding of the 5000. “And when it grew late, his disciples came to him and said, ‘This is a desolate place, and the hour is now late. Send them away to go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.’ But he answered them, ‘You give them something to eat.’ And they said to him, ‘Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give it to them to eat?’ And he said to them, ‘How many loaves do you have? Go and see.’ And when they had found out, they said, ‘Five, and two fish.’ Then he commanded them all to sit down in groups on the green grass. So they sat down in groups, by hundreds and by fifties. And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing and broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the people. And he divided the two fish among them all. And they all ate and were satisfied.” (Mark 6:35-42)

      One example I think of is the woman at the Well. I think there is something adaptive to the way that Jesus steered the conversation with her, without just simply forcing his lesson and principle into her.

      The parables because they had to read between the lines to figure out exactly what the lesson was instead of Him spoon feeding them the lesson.

      When he asked the people who wanted to stone someone if they too have sinned they were forced to reconsider what they wanted to do to that person and they all left. He just asked a good question that forced others to think.

      Just about every parable was something that made His listeners think without spoon feeding the answers. The spreading of seed is the one that I thought of initially.
