I hope you enjoy this collection of Jesus quotes; was Jesus of Nazareth the greatest teacher and revolutionary of all time? And was he the Son of God? Many believe so. Here's a brief profile and some of my favourite quotes to encourage and inspire.
Profile: Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Israel around 4BC. He grew up in Nazareth, not much is known of his early life except for a visit to Jerusalem at the age of 12 where he amazed the teachers in the Temple with his knowledge.
Around the age of 30 Jesus began his ministry, teaching, preaching and healing the sick with the 12 Jewish men he selected to be his disciples.
Fundamental to the Christian faith is the virgin birth, Jesus Christ's sinless life as the Son of God, his sacrificial death on the cross and resurrection. Most Christians believe that even though he done no wrong Jesus gave his life that we might be free from the judgement of our sin.
Jesus was betrayed, and condemn to death as a political criminal for claiming to be the King of the Jews. He was beaten, tortured and a crown of thorns placed on his head, then made to walk with his cross to Calvary where he was crucified around 30AD. Three days later he resurrected from the dead and appeared to his disciples, then ascended into heaven.
Jesus Christ done things differently, he ate with, and showed compassion and forgiveness, to social outcasts. He healed the lepers. He told the first that actually, you're really the last. He overturned the business tables of those working in the temple and broke Jewish laws. And of course on top of all that he said "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." John 14:6 (KJV).
"…,The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold,
the kingdom of God is within you."
Jesus Christ : Luke 17:20 - 21 (KJV)
"Suffer little children to come unto me,
and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Verily I say unto you,
whoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child
shall in no wise enter in."
Jesus Christ : Luke 18:16 - 17 (KJV)
"Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed:

Jesus Christ : Matthew 26:52 (KJV)
"Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That you may be children of your Father which is in heaven:
for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good,
and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward do you have?"
Jesus Christ : Matthew 5:44 - 46 (KJV)
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto the it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

(As Jesus hung on the cross)
"Then said Jesus, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."
Jesus Christ : Luke 23:34 (KJV)
"Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.
Do not condemn others, or it will come back against you.
Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.
Give, and you will receive.
Your gift will return to you in full-pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap.
The amount you give will determine the amount you get back."
Jesus Christ : Luke 6:37 - 38 (NLT)
