No One Ever Spoke Like this Man

No One Ever Spoke Like this Man

"The officers answered, 'No one ever spoke like this man!'" John 7:46

No one in existence ever spoke like Jesus spoke. Not Abraham, not Moses, not Buddha, not Mother Teresa, not Muhammad, not Confucius, not Brahman, not even Saint Paul… no one. Let’s address two thoughts that might be flowing in you right now. 1. “Wow, that’s offensive.” 2. “Wow, that’s compelling.” Whatever thought group you may fall in (it may be neither), one thing Jesus does not let us do with him is to sit on the fence and just chalk him off as a good or wise teacher. The way Jesus spoke about himself forces us to choose to believe he is who he says he is or he’s is absolutely, clinically insane. The middle ground doesn’t exist. The remainder of this article will be a list of six claims Jesus made about himself, his love for you, and his plan for his creation.


  1. Jesus claims to be God (John 8:58, 10:30 & 13:19)
  2. Jesus claims that we can do nothing without him (John 15:1-5)
  3. Jesus claims and displays his love for all people (John 13, 19 & 20)
  4. Jesus claims that faith in him is the way to eternal life (John 3:36)
  5. Jesus claims to hold the keys of Death and Hades (Rev 1:18)
  6. Jesus claims he came to save the world (John 3:16-17)


The verse for this article is John 7:46, and when read in context with the entirety of chapter 7, you too might say as the officers said, “No one ever spoke like this man.” Jesus is unfathomably patient with his creation and his love for you is an incredible gift. If you are battling with finding peace and answers in your life, go to a quiet space alone and ask Jesus to reveal himself to you. He is a man of his word and He promises to never let down those who call on his name.
