The Most Important Commandment

34 The Pharisees heard that the Sadducees weren't able to answer Jesus. So the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them was an authority on the law. So he tested Jesus with a question. 36 "Teacher," he asked, "which is the most important commandment in the Law?" 37 Jesus replied, " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love him with all your mind.'#1(Deuteronomy 6:5)#2 38 This is the first and most important commandment. 39 And the second is like it. 'Love your neighbor as you love yourself.'#1(Leviticus 19:18)#2 40 Everything that is written in the Law and the Prophets is based on these two commandments."
