Greatest Commandment

34 When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had left the Sadducees speechless, they met together.35 One of them, a legal expert, tested him. 36 “Teacher, what is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 He replied, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: You must love your neighbor as you love yourself40 All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.” 41 Now as the Pharisees were gathering, Jesus asked them, 42 “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” “David’s son,” they replied. 43 He said, “Then how is it that David, inspired by the Holy Spirit, called him Lord when he said,44 The Lord said to my lord, ‘Sit at my right side until I turn your enemies into your footstool’? 45 If David calls him Lord, how can he be David’s son?” 46 Nobody was able to answer him. And from that day forward nobody dared to ask him anything. (Matthew 22:34-46, CEB)

All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.

All the Law and the Prophets…

There are three sections to the Hebrew Scriptures.

TORAH
NEVI’IM
KETHUVIM

Law
Prophets
Writings

All the Law and the Prophets…

Jesus was literally saying to the Pharisees, All of your scripture hangs on these 2 commandments. Everything you have written down points to these two things, love God, Love neighbor.

If you get this, then you get the rest and everything else is meant to help you do these two.

Simple. Yet the hardest thing you will ever do.
