Compiled from The Greatest Life Ever Lived, by Cheny and Ellisen, 1999 version, edited by Meltebeke and Meltebeke (a blending of the four Gospels,adding nothing, omitting nothing.)

Some promises of Jesus relate to the far future when he shall have returned in glory; these are classed below as Future (F). Others relate to his followers’ present life on earth; these are classed below as Present (P). Some promises seem to relate to both the present and the future; these are classed below as Present (P).

Many of the promises of Jesus are only conditioned upon faith in him; these are classed below as Unconditional (U). Beyond faith, some of his promises have other conditions such as obedience, prayer, and humility; these are classed below as Conditional (C). In this listing of promises, pure predictions are not included, unless they carry a promise.

Jesus made most of his promises to all who believe them and fulfill their conditions; these are classed below as General (G). Some of his promises seem to have been offered only to particular individuals and groups; these are classed below as Individual (I).
