Where to begin What is a quote?
A quote is a statement made by a person or thing that tells you something important.
A lot of quotes you find in the bible, like the story of Jesus, are made up.
However, the Bible itself gives us lots of other, more specific examples of quotes, including the following: When the devil was casting out devils, Jesus said to him, “Get behind the wall!”
A story from Psalms: “The LORD, hearken, as the Lord heareth” When Solomon was about to throw his treasure into the sea, he asked the Lord, “What do I have to do with the sea?”
The LORD said to Solomon, “Do not give it up, for the LORD has heard it.”
When God was casting his angels out of heaven, he said to them, “Go ahead, you devils!
Go ahead, throw them out!”
When the sun was setting, the LORD said, “Look, the clouds are about to fall, and there will be darkness all around.
I will put darkness on the face of the deep, and the waters will rise up as far as the mountains.”

“When a woman was lying in a pool, she said, I want to see what you have to say to me, so I will say, “Give me a fish to drink.
“When Jesus was on the cross, he went up to him and said, What are you doing with this water?
He said, Don’t tell me what to do!
The woman said to Him, “Lord, it is written: Thou shalt never take the fish out of my hand.”
The LORD Jesus said, Who is this woman?
Then the woman went away, and she did not tell anybody about what had happened to her.

And when they saw Him, they said to one another, “Behold, the one who has seen us, has seen the Messiah!”
Jesus said again, “Amen.”
The Pharisee said to the others, “Let him alone, for he is one of us.”
Jesus said unto them, Behold, I am with you all the days of your life, and your sins will be forgiven.
When a child is being baptized, he says, My name is Joseph.
And he said unto his parents, Where is the baptismal water?
They said, It is not safe for me.
Jesus said further to them in the same manner, I have sent you this water to be your baptismal waters, to wash you from your sins, to cleanse you from every kind of filthiness, to sanctify you from all evil, and to bring you to everlasting life.
When Moses saw a snake, he cursed it.
The serpent said, Curse me, O man, that I may have life and strength, and I will bite you.
Moses said, Wherein thou hast cursed me, thou art cursed, because thou didst cast the snake into the lake of fire and brimstone.
Then Moses took the water and ran to the lake, and when he had drunk it he was filled with life.
Then he said in his heart, If this water is not the water of life, I will drown.
When Jesus told the Pharisaic disciples, “If you want to be saved, be baptized and follow me,” they answered him, Do not!
He said to his disciples, What do you mean by that?
They answered him in the following way: You want to become Jews, and you will be saved.
But the Jews will not become Jews unless they be baptized.
