Famous Jesus Quotes
This is not a religious website, but a spiritual website. Here, we listen to, and open our minds to all types of wisdom. Wisdom is wisdom no matter who says it. Here are a selection of Jesus quotes you may not have heard before:
What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and yet loses his soul?
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light
If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you
The Process of Crucifixion
The process of crucifixion, and what happens to the human body, is not well known in today's world. The Roman developed this process over hundred's of years. The cross was not a cross at all, but shaped like a "T".
The process of death doesn't start on the cross, but back in town where a criminal or enemy of the state was whipped to near death. The whipping was designed to shred the major muscle groups of the body and initiate the bleeding process.
Then, the criminal carried their cross to the crucifixion site. A cross weighed about 300 pounds. These sites were generally selected along strategic military borders to warn enemies and civilizations that were about to be invaded: This is what will happen to you if you challenge the Roman Empire. Often, hundred's and thousand's of souls were crucified along these borders.
For maximum effectiveness, the person being crucified had to live as long as possible, but endure pain and suffering so cry's could be heard through the land.
Today, we use the word excruciating, which literally came from the Roman phrase "out of crucifying." The public was permitted to walk up and down the rows of victims.
The Last Words of Jesus on the Cross (In Order)
Having just been nailed to the cross: "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do."
To a criminal hanging with him: "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise."
Jesus said to his mother: "Woman, this is your son." Then he said to a disciple: "This is your mother."
After nine hours of hanging on the cross: "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
After going into shock: "I thirst."
Taking his last sip of wine, and just before death: "It is finished."
His dying words: "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit."
So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
What do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?
The kingdom of heaven is spread out across the earth, only people don't see it.
Even the least among you can do all that I have done, and greater things.
He who rules his spirit has won a greater victory than the taking of a city.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
It is more blessed to give than to receive.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
The path of dying to self and being reborn leads to life abundant.
Knowledge and ritual without compassion is empty.
If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you.
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.
Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone.
Look at the birds above your head. They neither plant nor reap, they neither store nor hoard, yet day by day they are provided with food.

Do not seek for yourselves treasures on earth. Rust consume them, and thieves will steal them. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
