The Greatest Commandment

When the Pharisees heard how Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they assembled together. One of them, a lawyer, questioned him to test him, “Teacher, which commandment of the law is the greatest?”

Jesus answered,

“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 the most important of the commandments. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. The whole law and the prophets are founded on these two commandments.”
