38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my
words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be
ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels."
(Mark 8, NIV)
32 "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge
him before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before
men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven. (Matthew 10, NIV)
6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the
life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14, NIV)
44 Then Jesus cried out, "When a man believes in me,
he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45
When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. 46 I have
come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should
stay in darkness.
47 "As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day. 49 For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say." (John 12, NIV)
36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the
day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. 37
For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be
38 Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, "Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you."
39 He answered, "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here. 42 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here. (Matthew 12, NIV)
33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you
may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I
have overcome the world." (John 16, NIV)
35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never
pass away. (Matthew 24, NIV)
10 "Do you refuse to speak to me?" Pilate said. "Don't you
realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?"
11 Jesus answered, "You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin."
12 From then on, Pilate tried to set Jesus free, but the Jews kept shouting, "If you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar. Anyone who claims to be a king opposes Caesar." (John 19, NIV)
10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is
by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God
raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11
"`the stone you builders rejected,
which has become the capstone.'
12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4, NIV)
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2, NIV)
12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed
in his name, he gave the right to become children of God -- 13
children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's
will, but born of God. (John 1, NIV)
10 And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy
of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good
work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened
with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great
endurance and patience, and joyfully 12 giving thanks to the
Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints
in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion
of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14
in whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins.
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation -- 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant. (Colossians 1, NIV)
