Immediately we begin thus to study Jesus, so to say, at first hand in these gospel portraits, one characteristic most strikes us. As a leader He is quite sure of what He has to say. There is a ring of certainty in all His words. Never was there a teacher more positive, if you like to put it so, more dogmatic. We have our views, we cherish our opinions, we balance arguments and measure probabilities. You never find Jesus doing anything of the kind. You never hear Him talking of His views or His opinions; you never hear Him speaking in our hazy style; "On the whole, considering all the facts of the case, I am inclined to venture the assertion that this or that may turn out to be the explanation of it"... For the style of Jesus, even when dealing with the most profound mysteries of existence, is thus: "Verily, verily, I say unto you."
-- Walter F. Adeney Truth in Jesus
