Matthew 22 - NIV

34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together.

35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question:

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a]

38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Whose Son Is the Messiah?


a. Matthew 22:37 Deut.?6:5

Loving Others
Shared by: Annie Springate on May, 2016
Summary: The commandment Jesus left us with is to love God and love others. In general we find it much easier to love God than we do loving others. Why is that? We have an enemy and when we realize his tactics we are better placed to fulfill Jesus' command.
