Top Ten List of Bible Verses (Christianity at a Glance)

Although all Scripture is inspired (2 Timothy 3:16), some verses are more profound than others.  Some are less obvious, and others encapsulate the truths of many other verses, more concisely and comprehensively.  This is not a list of the verses that are most often memorized, quoted, or referenced.  This is a list of the most precious verses--those that we should cherish if we could pick only ten verses.  Thankfully, there are 31,102!  If your list is different than mine, let me know!
