Ethical-Teachings-of-Jesus

"Our real problem with Jesus is not the vast amount of detail we will never know, for most of that we do not need to know. The problem is that we have ascribed to him a different gospel from what he himself envisaged! We have put him on a pedestal and worshiped him, rather than walking in his footsteps. Put somewhat differently: we must work our way back through the church’s own familiar gospel and its domestication of the gospel of Jesus. Only then do we strike upon what he really had to say, which was a brittle, upsetting, comforting, challenging gospel."      - James M. Robinson ; The Gospel of Jesus


"Anyone who chooses to do the will of God [what Jesus taught] will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own."    - Jesus ; John 7.17


"Without realizing it, we reclassify his sayings as objective teachings to which we can give intellectual assent, rather than letting them strike home as the personal challenge he intended them to be. The issue is not what we think about them, but rather what we do about them."      - James M. Robinson ; The Gospel of Jesus


"Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."    - Jesus ; Matthew 6.10


“Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this . . . The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no commandment greater than these.”    - Jesus ; Mark 12.28-31


"'Keep my sayings, and ye shall know of my sayings whether they be true.' No proofs of this doctrine were offered except its truth . . ."    - Leo Tolstoy ; The Kingdom of God Is Within You
