Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Luke 10:27


10:27 Thou shalt love the Lord thy God - That is, thou shalt unite all the faculties of thy soul to render him the most intelligent and sincere, the most affectionate and resolute service. We may safely rest in this general sense of these important words, if we are not able to fix the particular meaning of every single word. If we desire to do this, perhaps the heart, which is a general expression, may be explained by the three following, With all thy soul, with the warmest affection, with all thy strength, the most vigorous efforts of thy will, and with all thy mind or understanding, in the most wise and reasonable manner thou canst; thy understanding guiding thy will and affections. #De 6:5|; Lev 19:18.

Discussion for Luke 10

  • Son of David
    You see that Jesus was every bit as human as you or me, even subject to emotions of doubt and distress. What a teacher! He demonstrates not as rhe hypocrites who say and who does not practice. What is love but the word of the Father which Jesus received and gave to whosoever he would. Their is no respect of persons with Jesus, the Christ. He came to earth miraculously and went his way sowing

    Irene: Yes, sorry, I translated it in my head from the Finnish bible.

    Anna - I guess your Bible says - "locked"; the KJV just says shut. That's okay, they very well could have been locked - for fear of the unbelieving Jews.
