Jesus: quotes

   Jesus walked this earth wielding great supernatural power: healing 
   the sick, the blind, the deaf; casting out demons, raising the dead, 
   performing astounding miracles.  People everywhere were impressed 
   by him, believing in him, following him.  The Jewish leaders were 
   afraid of him, afraid of his influence and power with the 
   common people, afraid of losing their own power.  And they 
   rejected him, rejected his claims, and finally crucified him.  
   Just exactly what did Jesus teach?  What did he claim for 
   himself?  He claimed that he was that messiah that was promised 
   in Jewish scripture.  He claimed to be the Son of God, sent 
   down to earth by God, for the purpose of becoming that supreme 
   sacrifice for sin.  His claims are truly astounding.  It is 
   understandable how the Jewish leaders might reject a man who 
   claimed to be of divine nature, indeed God himself.  They felt 
   it was blasphemy for a man to make himself equal to God, indeed 
   to claim to be God himself.  The following are some quotes that 
   give insight into just what Jesus claimed: 

   I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk 
   in darkness, but have the light of life.    John 8:12

   You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I 
   am not of this world. Therefore I said to you that you will die 
   in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will 
   die in your sins.        John 8:23-24

   If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you 
   shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 
                                                 John 8:31-32

   Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall 
   never see death.    John 8:51

   Jesus to the Jewish leaders: "If God were your Father, you 
   would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor 
   have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not 
   understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My 
   word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your 
   father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, 
   and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in 
   him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, 
   for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the 
   truth, you do not believe Me."       John 8:42-45

   If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who 
   believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart 
   will flow rivers of living water.      John 7:37-38

   My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me.   John 7:16

   Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food 
   which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will 
   give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him." 
                                           John 6:27

   I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, 
   and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

   All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who 
   comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down 
   from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who 
   sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of 
   all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise 
   it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent 
   Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have 
   everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day." 

   The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, "I am the 
   bread which came down from heaven." And they said, "Is not this 
   Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How 
   is it then that He says, 'I have come down from heaven'?" 

   Jesus therefore answered and said to them, "Do not murmur among 
   yourselves. No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me 
   draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written 
   in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore 
   everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. 
   Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; 
   He has seen the Father. 

   Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has 
   everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the 
   manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which 
   comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I 
   am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats 
   of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall 
   give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world. 
                                                John 6:35,37-51

   Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of 
   Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, 
   the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, 
   and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show 
   Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. For as the 
   Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son 
   gives life to whom He will. For the Father judges no one, but 
   has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor 
   the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor 
   the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. Most assuredly, 
   I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent 
   Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but 
   has passed from death into life.   John 5:19-24

   Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever 
   drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. 
   But the water that I shall give him will become in him a 
   fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. 
                                           John 4:14

   But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers 
   will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is 
   seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who 
   worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." 
                                           John 4:23-24

   Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he 
   cannot see the kingdom of God.

   Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? 
   Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?" 

   Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is 
   born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of 
   God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which 
   is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to 
   you,  You must be born again.' 
                                                John 3:3-7

   And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so 
   must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him 
   should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the 
   world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes 
   in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did 
   not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that 
   the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is 
   not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned 
   already, because he has not believed in the name of the only 
   begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the 
   light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather 
   than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone 
   practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, 
   lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth 
   comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that 
   they have been done in God.     John 3:14-21

   I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My 
   own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I 
   lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which 
   are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will 
   hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd. 
   Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I 
   may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down 
   of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to 
   take it again. This command I have received from My Father. 
                                                 John 10:14-18

   My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 
   And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; 
   neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who 
   has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able 
   to snatch them out of My Father's hand. I and My Father are 
   one.     John 10:27-30

   I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, 
   though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and 
   believes in Me shall never die. 
                                           John 11:25-26

   He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent 
   Me. And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. I have come as a 
   light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not 
   abide in darkness. And if anyone hears My words and does not 
   believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the 
   world but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and does not 
   receive My words, has that which judges him the word that I 
   have spoken will judge him in the last day. For I have not 
   spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me 
   a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I 
   know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever 
   I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak. 
                                              John 12:44-50

   I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to 
   the Father except through Me. 

   If you love Me, keep my commandments.

   He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is 
   he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My 
   Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.

   If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will 
   love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 
   He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word 
   which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me.                    
                                  John 14:6, 15, 21, 23-24 

   If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just 
   as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
                                           John 15:10
