"For as Jonah became a sign to the men of Nin'eveh, so will the Son of man be to this generation. The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here."

-Luke 11: 30, 31

"What most decisively draws our attention to Christ is not that he is more powerful than other human beings (that is, that he has an unheard-of knowledge and strength of will and other psychic or parapsychic powers, which would perhaps serve to explain his miracles), but that he seeks to be so 'meek and humble of heart' and therefore so 'poor in spirit' that absolute love might shine through his human love and become present in it."

-Father Hans Urs von Balthasar
