Nov 19th 2017. Testament. Ten Commandments: Love God. Matthew 22:36-40, Exodus 20:1-11.Jesus knew and loved the Old Testament. Its books were his scriptures. When asked about the greatest commandments he quoted from Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18 (Love God, and Love your neighbour) and said the whole of the Law and Prophets (i.e. the Bible as he knew it) hung on these two sayings. The ten commandments are in many ways an articulation of these two principles. Download discussion notes.
