  1. Well, these are just a few.I love that Jesus was a great observer of the people of His time. I would have loved to hang out with Him. Can you just imagine being ruthlessly oppressed and intimidated by the Scribes, Pharisees and Romans…What a breath of fresh air he was!
    Then, there is that loving, compassionate side, illustrated by the Good Shepherd, His miracle and healing ministry.
    Wit,wisdom, kindness, compassion, courage, honesty- I can’t think of anyone Of rather know.

  2. Luke 15:3-6 NIV
    Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home.
    This is my personal favorite. It explains the great love God has for each of us and shows that He never gives up on us. I have a picture of Jesus holding the lost lamb on my wall by my bed. When I am praying for a person with a struggle that seems difficult to put into words I just say, ” Jesus can they be the lamb in your arms tonight? What a thought! To be safe in the arms of our Good Shepherd.💗

  3. Matthew 23:25-26 NIV
    “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. [26] Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
    Another example of His great wit.He didn’t waste words, but He was brilliant at critiquing the societal hypocrisies He encountered in a low key,but very effective way. All these observations remain true today,as the were when He walked among us.

  4. Matthew 7:3-5 NIV
    “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? [4] How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? [5] You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
    Another great one!

  5. Matthew 15:10-11 NIV
    Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. [11] What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.”
    I love the wit of Jesus! This and my next few passages will illustrate what I mean. He was a master of pointing out the truth, calling people out on hypocrisy, but with such wit and class that it took them a while to catch on.

  6. Matthew 6:19-21 NIV
    “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. [20] But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. [21] For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
    This is the first passage I was taught by my grandmother in about….Never mind😜…( A lady never tells her age) anyway, she told me it would be a great thing to give myself, and all that I do, to the Lord while I was young. That in choosing for Him in my youth, it would be like giving Him a fresh bunch of flowers…( Her words exactly).

  7. Wow! I love the idea of studying scripture together! I will have to look and think…there are so many, for so many reasons. I will look them up( I am a great paraphraser)…bear with me.
