about

Thousands of years ago a baby was born in a stable.  He was among the poorest of the poor, but in his lifetime he says things that are so astonishing, that millions of people are still living their lives by them today. He told us to love each other and turn the other cheek.  And at a young age he was brutally crucified for simple telling people to love.  Those who killed him probably thought it would end in his death.  Yet today he is still remembered.

The shelves of the libraries and of the bookstores are packed with the sayings of other great men; but it is rare to find in a library or bookstore, in any published book, the complete sayings of Jesus, the bare sayings in simple sequence, Christ's own words.

This compiler's purpose has been to enable any reader, whether confirmed Christian or inquiring individual, to get a clear view of Jesus Christ’s message.   Many readers may have arrived at the end of the New Testament with still a hazy picture of Christ.  There were so many biographers! - Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul - each essaying not a biography as such, not the record of the Teacher's sayings as such, but intent upon launching each his own conception of Christ's mission.

Christ's sayings complete, brought into a sequence of times and occasions, but lifted out of contexts alien to the present purpose, may prove to be a glowing story new not only to the non-reader, but new even to the devout New-Testament readers who have not as yet discerned the "continuities."

Devoted readers will not be diverted from the Great Text. Perhaps other readers - the casual New-Testament reader and the non-reader - after enjoying these pages may venture the greater enjoyment: the attentive perusal of all the gospels and all the epistles, perhaps of all the New Testament.
