The  Greatest  Commandment

A teacher of the Law asked Jesus,  "Which commandment is the most important of all?"   (Not counting the Ten Commandments,  Moses and the Prophets gave the people hundreds of laws that dealt with morality,  social laws about civil matters,  and religious laws.)

Jesus replied,  "The most important one is this:  'Listen, Israel!   There is only one God who is your Lord!  Love the Lord your God with all your heart,  with all your soul,  with all your mind,  and with all your strength.'

The second most important commandment is this:    'Love your neighbor as much as you love yourself.'  All the laws that have been given to you by Moses and the Prophets are based on these two commands.  There is no other commandment more important than these two."

The teacher was impressed with Jesus' answer and said,  "Then it is more important to obey these two commandments than to offer on the altar animals and other sacrifices to God"

Jesus noticed how wise his answer was and told him,  "You are not far from the Kingdom of God."

( New Testament,  Book Of Mark,  Chapter 12,  Verses 28-34 )
also found in the Book Of Matthew,  Chapter 22,  Verses 34-40
and  Luke,  Chapter 10,  Verses 25-28)
