As the print of the seal on the wax is the express image of the seal itself, so Christ is the express image—the perfect representation of God.
The name of Christ—the one great word—well worth all languages in earth or heaven.
Jesus Christ, the condescension of divinity, and the exaltation of humanity.
The difference between Socrates and Jesus Christ? The great Conscious; the immeasurably great Unconscious.
I believe Plato and Socrates. I believe in Jesus Christ.
Every step toward Christ kills a doubt. Every thought, word, and deed for Him carries you away from discouragement.
An era in human history is the life of Jesus, and its immense influence for good leaves all the perversion and superstition that has accrued almost harmless.
This is part of the glory of Christ as compared with the chiefest of His servants that He alone stands at the absolute center of humanity, the one completely harmonious man, unfolding all which was in humanity, equally and fully on all sides, the only one in whom the real and ideal met and were absolutely one.—He is the absolute and Perfect truth, the highest that humanity can reach; at once its perfect image and supreme Lord.
In his life, Christ is an example, showing us how to live; in his death, he is a sacrifice, satisfying for our sins; in his resurrection, a conqueror; in his ascension, a king; in his intercession, a high priest.
God never gave a man a thing to do, concerning which it were irreverent to ponder how the Son of God would have done it.
The nature of Christ's existence is mysterious, I admit; but this mystery meets the wants of man.—Reject it and the world is an inexplicable riddle; believe it, and the history of our race is satisfactorily explained.
Jesus Christ is a God to whom we can approach without pride, and before whom we may abase ourselves without despair.
All history is incomprehensible without Christ.
As little as humanity will ever be without religion, as little will it be without Christ.
