The Greatest Commandment34Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question:
36“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’Deut. 6:538This is the first and greatest commandment.39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’Lev. 19:18
40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
