A Character Extraordinary

'In Jesus is the tenderness of the shepherd, the affection of the parent, and the matchless grace of the compassionate Saviour.' (DA826)

'The emblem in the form of a dove that hovered over Jesus at His baptism represents His gentleness of character.' (2SM238)
'As the people looked upon Him, they saw a face where divine compassion was blended with conscious power. Every glance of the eye, every feature of the countenance, was marked with humility, and expressive of unutterable love. He seemed to be surrounded by an atmosphere of spiritual influence. While His manners were gentle and unassuming, He impressed men with a sense of power that was hidden yet could not be wholly concealed.' (DA137)
'A most courteous manner characterized the work of the Saviour.' (CH435)
'His life was as the garden of the Lord in which grew every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. His sensibility, courtesy, and love brought Him into close sympathy with humanity.' (5T421)
'In the heart of Jesus, where reigned perfect harmony with God, there was perfect peace. He was never elated by applause, nor dejected by censure or disappointment. Amid the greatest opposition and the most cruel treatment, He was still of good courage.' (DA330)
'The love of Jesus - who can comprehend it? Infinitely more tender and self-denying than a mother's love.' (SL93)
'Love for God, zeal for His glory, and love for fallen humanity, brought Jesus to earth to suffer and to die. This was the controlling power of His life. This principle He bids us adopt.' (DA330)
He 'came into the world to bring all resistance and authority into subjection to Himself, but He did not claim obedience through the strength of argument or the voice of command; He went about doing good and teaching His followers the things which belonged to their peace. He stirred up no strife, He resented no personal injuries, but met with meek submission the insults, the false accusations, and the cruel scourging of those who hated Him and condemned Him to death. Jesus is our example. His life is a practical illustration of His divine teachings. His character is a living exhibition of the way to do good and overcome evil.' (4T139)
