34When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, 35and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?”37He said to him, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38This is the greatest and first commandment. 39And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:34-40, NRSV)
Why were people always trying to trip up Jesus?
Does it matter what the greatest commandment is if we break all the rest will keeping 1 really make a difference?
But really Jesus tells them that all of the Law and Prophets hang on these 2 things that we love God and love others. All of the scriptures tell us that we should love God and love neighbor.
Do these things and all will be good.
