“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.”
King James Version (KJV)
13:34 A new commandment - Not new in itself; but new in the school of Christ: for he had never before taught it them expressly. Likewise new, as to the degree of it, as I have loved you.
Joh 13:34 A new commandment. The commandment to love was not new (Le 19:18,34), but such love as Christ commanded was new.
