THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT

28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, β€œOf all the commandments, which is the most important?”

29 β€œThe most important one,” answered Jesus, β€œis this: β€˜Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.

30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

31 The second is this: β€˜Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

32 β€œWell said, teacher,” the man replied. β€œYou are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him.

33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”

34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, β€œYou are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions.

(The Gospel of St. Mark, Chapter 12)
