Did Jesus have secret teachings?


Jesus told his disciples that he spoke in parables so that no one else would understand what he was saying. (His teaching was a secret that he shared only with his disciples.)
And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. Matthew 13:10-11

When he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable. nd he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables. Mark 4:10-11

His disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables. Luke 8:9-10

He also commanded his disciples not to tell anyone who he is.
Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. Matthew 16:20

And he charged them that they should tell no man of him. Mark 8:30

And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing. Luke 9:21

He told Peter, John, and James not to tell anyone about the transfiguration.

As they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. Matthew 17:9, Mark 9:9


Jesus told the high priest that he spoke openly to everyone about everything. He told his disciples the same things he told everyone else.
The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. John 18:19-20
