Famous Quotes About Who Jesus Is

By Karl Barth

Jesus does not give recipes that show the way to God as other teachers of religion do. He is himself the way. Karl Barth


By Phillip Brooks

Christ is the Word of God. It is not in certain texts written in the New Testament, valuable as they are; it is not in certain words which Jesus spoke, vast as is their preciousness; it is in the Word, which Jesus is, that the great manifestation of God is made. Phillips Brooks

There are but two essential requirements: First: has anyone cheated death and proved it? Second: Is it available to me? Here is the complete record: Confucius’ tomb – occupied.

Famous Quotes About Jesus In Our Lives

By Augustine

Jesus Christ is not valued at all until He is valued above all. Augustine

By Cyril Brooks

Jesus says to you and me, ‘I want to share with you what I have achieved. I want to live in you. I want to share my risen life with you.’ How do we get it? We cannot buy it, cannot earn it, cannot work for it-no matter how hard we try. In fact the harder we try, the less likely we are of getting it, because the point is that it is a free gift! We can only accept it free! We can only receive it! We don’t get it by being good! We get it by grace, i.e. Jesus Christ living in us. Cyril Brooks

By Oswald Chambers

Until we know Jesus, God is merely a concept, and we can’t have faith in Him. But once we hear Jesus say, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” (John 14:9) we immediately have something that is real, and our faith is limitless. Oswald Chambers

By Desiderius Erasmus

By a Carpenter mankind was made, and only by that Carpenter can mankind be remade. Desiderius Erasmus

By Harry Emerson Fosdick

The steady discipline of intimate friendship with Jesus results in men becoming like Him. Harry Emerson Fosdick

By A. J. Gossip

What exactly has Christ done for you? What is there in your life that needs Christ to explain it, and that, apart from Him, simply could not have been there at all? If there is nothing, then your religion is a sheer futility. But then that is your fault, not Jesus Christ’s. For, when we open the New Testament, it is to come upon whole companies of excited people, their faces all aglow, their hearts dazed and bewildered by the immensity of their own good fortune. Apparently they find it difficult to think of anything but this amazing happening that has befallen them; quite certainly they cannot keep from laying almost violent hands on every chance passer-by, and pouring out yet once again the whole astounding story. And always, as we listen, they keep throwing up their hands as if in sheer despair, telling us it is hopeless, that it breaks through language, that it won’t describe, that until a man has known Christ for himself he can have no idea of the enormous difference He makes. It is as when a woman gives a man her heart; or when a little one is born to very you; or when, after long lean years of pain and greyness, health comes back. You cannot really describe that; you cannot put it into words, not adequately. Only, the whole world is different, and life gloriously new. Well, it is like that, they say. Arthur John (A. J.) Gossip

By D.L. Moody

A rule I have had for years is: to treat the Lord Jesus Christ as a personal friend. His is not a creed, a mere doctrine, but it is He Himself we have. D.L. Moody

By Joseph Parker

Humans need Jesus Christ as a necessity and not as a luxury. You may be pleased to have flowers, but you must have bread…. Jesus is not a phenomenon, He is bread: Christ is not a curiosity, He is water. As surely as we cannot live without bread, we cannot live truly without Christ: If we know not Christ we are not living, our movement is a mechanical flutter, our pulse is but the stirring of an animal life. Joseph Parke


By Blaise Pascal

Not only do we not know God except through Jesus Christ; We do not even know ourselves except through Jesus Christ.  Blaise Pascal

By John Piper

Consider Jesus. Know Jesus. Learn what kind of Person it is you say you trust and love and worship. Soak in the shadow of Jesus. Saturate your soul with the ways of Jesus. Watch Him. Listen to Him. Stand in awe of Him. Let Him overwhelm you with the way He is. John Piper

By Charles Stanley

As you walk through the valley of the unknown, you will find the footprints of Jesus both in front of you and beside you. Charles Stanley
