Matthew 22:34-40

Great 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 yourself.
40 All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands."
