The Pharisees plotted together against Jesus and put forth a lawyer to try to trap Him in His words. The lawyer asked, “Which is the greatest commandment in the law?” And Jesus’ answer was twofold:
“’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 great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets” (Matt. 22:37-40)
The word for love is agape. “You shall agape the Lord and you shall agape your neighbor.”
