The Greatest Commandment

Matthew 22:34-40 And one of them, a doctor of the law, asked him, tempting him: Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets. (January 24, 1991) "Write these words and put it with My Ten Commandments: He who obeys the commandments he has from Me is the man who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father. I too will love him and reveal Myself to him." [see John 14:21] (January 26, 1991) "Love one another as I have loved you. The command I give you is this, that you love one another." [see John 15:12]
