TOPIC

The Great Commandment




VERSE

"'Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him,
'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul,
and with all your mind.  This is the first and great commandment.  And the
second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'  On these
two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.'"


- Matthew 22:36-40






SUMMARY

The Pharisees, lay experts on the Scripture and the Law, had found 613
commandments in the Scriptures and argued interminably about which one was
central.  Thus they ask about the great commandment.  Jesus sets forth the
first great commandment and the second as well, which together constitute
the grand summary of the Law.  He knows they are asking Him maliciously.
