Your heart will almost burst with joy and praise as you read what some of the most important people of the past and present, most Christian, some even non-Christian, have said about the most important Person who ever lived. I believe that your spirit will soar to higher heights in praise of the One who died for us as you read these eloquent and powerful quotations. The mighty words contained in this book are about the greatest figure who ever graced the earth — yet our Saviour and Friend — Jesus — Just Jesus!
HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF SOME OF THE POWERFUL STATEMENTS IN THIS BOOK:
“At the end of the day, only one thing matters, and that’s Jesus, Just Jesus, and nothing else.”
“Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander the Great, Caesar, Mohammed, and Napoleon; without science and learning, He shed more light on things human and divine than all philosophers and scholars combined; without the eloquence of school, He spoke such words of life as were never spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator or poet; without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art, and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times.” –Philip Schaff
“As the centuries pass, the evidence is accumulating that, measured by His effect on history, Jesus is the most influential life ever lived on this planet.” –Kenneth Scott Latourette
“I have a great need for Christ; I have a great Christ for my need.” –Charles H. Spurgeon
“Jesus painted no pictures. Yet some of the greatest paintings of Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci received their inspiration from Him. Jesus wrote no poetry; but Dante, Milton, and scores of the world’s greatest poets were inspired by Him. Jesus composed no music; but Haydn, Handel, Beethoven, Bach, and Mendelssohn reached their highest perfection in the symphonies and oratorios they composed in His praise. Every sphere of human greatness has been influenced by this humble carpenter of Nazareth!” –Henry Ward Beecher
“I marvel that whereas the ambitious dreams of myself, Caesar, and Alexander should have vanished into thin air, a Judean peasant–Jesus–should be able to stretch His hands across the centuries and control the destinies of men and nations.” –Napoleon Bonaparte
Just Jesus (Volume 2): More of the Greatest Things Ever Said About the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived Kindle Edition
We are pleased to bring you the second volume of “Just Jesus: The Greatest Things Ever Said About the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived.”
In this second volume, we made a special effort to include quotes about Jesus Christ from people who have lived in the past 100 years, and thus may be more familiar to the reader. You will find that many of these quotes are highlighted in different type throughout the book. These quotes are from luminaries in the entertainment, music, literary, sports, religious, business, and political arenas. We hope that the inclusion of these quotes would make the book easier for you to relate to and more enjoyable to you as you read it.
Some of these new quotes include the following:
“The purpose of life is to be found through having Christ in your life, and understanding what His plan is, and following that plan.” —Julius “Dr. J” Erving
“I had never believed in Jesus before and I wasn’t going to go for it. I never would have, but let me tell you, Jesus is alive…” —George Foreman
“I came to my Christian faith later in life and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead.” —Barack Obama
“I really don’t see a reason why you wouldn’t want to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. I mean, not only was He the greatest human being to ever walk the earth, He’s everything that I want to strive for. He’s everything that anyone should ever want to strive for.” —Sam Bradford
“One encounter with Jesus Christ is enough to change you, instantly, forever.” —Luis Palau
Just Jesus (Volume 3): Even More of the Greatest Things Ever Said About the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived
We are pleased to bring you the third volume of “Just Jesus: The Greatest Things Ever Said About the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived.”
In this volume, we want to emphasize the impact that Jesus Christ has (and should have) on our daily lives. Our relationship with Him should, as one person said, “touch and tincture” every part of our existence. To that end, we have included over 350 new quotes. Each of the quotes in this book will invite you to meditate on the Person and work of Jesus Christ. Consider how He is shaping your life today. Consider how you can become more like Him in your thinking. Consider how you can imitate Him in your actions.
Many of the quotes in the first and second volumes of Just Jesus focused on the Lord’s death, burial, and resurrection. In this volume, you will find that we have sprinkled quotes about two other equally important events — the birth of Christ and His Second Coming.
The first advent, commonly celebrated at Christmas, should bring joy to our hearts as it reminds us that God has not abandoned this world. He loves us and sacrificed His Only Son to save us. This is a message everyone still needs to hear.
The words which remind us of Jesus’ Second Coming should stir our hearts in anticipation of this marvelous future event. Amidst the darkness of this present age, the hope of the Second Coming provides light on our path. Get ready! Jesus came once, is with us now, and is coming again. It’s the next big thing!
Finally, we made a special effort to include words about Jesus from some of today’s diverse, young leaders in the faith community. The revolution which began with Jesus’ birth is continuing. The future is full of blank pages, and there is no doubt that God will write beautiful, redemptive history — His story — on them.
Above all, remember: though this book includes quotes from Christians and non-Christians, believers and skeptics, conservatives and liberals, progressives and traditionalists — sinners all — it is not about them.
It’s all about Him — just Jesus.
