The Incomparable Christ - More Great Quotes

I could not fit all the excellent quotes from J. Oswald Sanders' classic work, The Incomparable Christ in just one post so here are more thought-provoking statements. 

  • "Anyone can sing in the sunshine, but to sing in the shadows is a rare accomplishment" (181).
  • "We are apt to advance pressure of business as a reason for not praying. With Jesus, it was a reason for giving extra time to prayer" (194).
  • "He drank a cup of wrath without mercy, that we might drink a cup of mercy without wrath" (204).
  • "Never were legal proceedings more irregular or verdict more unjust than in the trial of Jesus" (209).
  • "The death of our Lord was unlike every other death. It was not an incident in His life, but the very purpose of it. His self-oblation was no accident in a brilliant career, it was the chosen vocation of the God-man" (226).
