Jesus Christ

  • I am amazed by the sayings of Christ. They seem truer than anything I have ever read. And they certainly turn the world upside down.

  • ... these Christians today don't represent the Christianity I know. I want Jesus to come back and say, 'That's not what I meant!'

  • God was executed by people painfully like us, in a society very similar to our own ... by a corrupt church, a timid politician, and a fickle proletariat led by professional agitators.

  • If we did not know all His retorts by heart, if we had not taken the sting out of them by incessant repetition in the accents of the pulpit, and if we had not somehow got it into our heads that brains were rather reprehnsible, we should reckon Him among the greatest wits of all time. Nobody else, in three brief years, has achieved such an output of epigram.

  • The people who hanged Christ never, to do them justice, accused Him of being a bore — on the contrary; they thought Him too dynamic to be safe. It has been left for later generations to muffle up that shattering personality and surround Him with an atmosphere of tedium.

  • Jesus was a friend of women, the first and practically the last friend women had in the church.

  • To reconceive the Christ! It is the special task of our age ...

  • He [Christ] even restored the severed ear of the soldier who came to arrest Him — a fact that allows us to hope the resurrection will reflect a considerable attention to detail.

  • If men pride themselves on the fact that Jesus Christ was born of their sex, the answer is that this was necessary for the sake of decency, for if he had been a woman, it would have been impossible for Jesus to go out at all hours of the day and the night and mingle with the crowds to convert them and to help and save mankind, without creating a scandal ...

  • Jesus would be framed and in jail if he was living today.

  • When all else fails, and to stand firm seems impossible, stand on the wood of the Cross; it will float with you.

  • It is part of the amazing originality of Christ that there is to be found in his teaching no word whatever which suggests a difference in the spiritual ideals, the spheres, or the potentialities of men and women.

  • The feet of Christ are set in human places ...

  • Christ is God or He is the world's greatest liar and imposter.

  • At the name of Jesus / Every knee shall bow ...

  • Christ must be rediscovered perpetually.

  • As we know, our own mother bore us only into pain and dying. But our true mother, Jesus, who is all love, bears us into joy and endless living. Blessed may he be.

  • Jesus loves me — this I know, / For the Bible tells me so.

  • I once heard someone say that my belief in Jesus makes them suspect that I intellectually suck my thumb at night. But I cannot pretend, as much as sometimes I would like to, that I have not throughout my life experienced the redeeming, destabilizing love of a surprising God.

  • Jesus was not killed by atheism and anarchy. He was brought down by law and order allied with religion, which is always a deadly mix.
