“no one has ever yet discovered the words ‘jesus ought to have said.’ read the accounts. you try to come up with better lines. do you realize what kind of person you’d have to be to even make this up? if somebody made this up we would have to be sitting here having the same kind of discussion over who is this incredible person who made it up? what kind of person would this be? no one has ever yet discovered the words ‘jesus ought to have said’ or ‘the deity ought to have done.’ nothing he does falls short, in fact, he is always surprising you and taking your breath away because he is better than you can imagine. why? they are the surprises of perfection. he combined virtues never seen together: tenderness without weakness, strength without harshness, humility without the slightest lack of confidence, holiness and unbending convictions without the slightest lack of approachability, power without insensitivity, passion without prejudice, the harshest judgment on the self-satisfied yet the most winsome kindness to the broken and the marginal, never inconsistent, never a false step, never a jarring note.” – tim keller
