Jesus: top ten quotes

Jesus: top ten quotes

The Bible Guide Online proposes the top ten sayings of Jesus. Do you agree? What are your top ten?

Jesus’ quotes provide some of the most memorable sayings of all time. This is my attempt at categorizing the top ten Jesus quotes, which I have done in a rather unsystematic way other than picking them based on…

popularity: Some of Jesus’ sayings are well known, even among those who don’t follow Him, but many others are not. I added weight for the popularity of a teaching–especially those that would be known by someone otherwise unfamiliar with Jesus.

power: The more radical, the better. Some of Jesus’ quotes go so against the grain of the way the world operates, that we gave weight simply for this quality alone.

person: I also chose verses because they were representative in some way or another of Jesus entire life and theme of ministry, such as a verse on the Kingdom of Heaven or Jesus’ quotes about love.

Read the choices here.

Just for starters, from Matthew:

Don’t be afraid.

Come with me.

Pass no judgement.

Ask, and you will receive.

Seek, and you will find.

Take heart.

The Kingdom of Heaven is very near.

Nothing will prove impossible for you.

I did not come to invite virtuous people, but sinners.

Do not be afraid.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
