Who Said It? Jesus or someone else?

This is a quiz I am developing for Sunday school in a couple of days. Tell me which quotes you think are from Jesus, and which quotes you think are from someone else. Write them down. The answers appear in the comment section once you have taken the quiz. See how you do, and then tell me how you did.

1.The Truth shall set you free

2.The Soul of a man is immortal and imperishable

3.The unexamined life is not worth living

4.Love never claims, it ever gives

5.He who does not love God does not know God, for God is love

6.I have come that they may have life

7.What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose their soul

8.From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs

9.The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak

10.Over the soul God will not suffer any man to rule, only he himself will rule there

11.Both heaven and hell are within us

12.The kingdom of God is within you

I only got 6,7, and 12 right!

I had NO clue to the others but I had heard of them before. This is my first time to your blog - and I like it!!

This quiz makes me think I should have paid more attention in Sunday School! ahahaha!

Well, I got all but 11, which I thought sounded like the poet William Blake. My bad.

Another fun fact - I can read Classical Greek, and Plato's famous phrase "The unexamined life is not worth living" can also be translated "The unexamining life is not worth living" which gives a somewhat different spin on the quote.
