Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Mark 12:29


12:29 The Lord our God is one Lord - This is the foundation of the first commandment, yea, of all the commandments. The Lord our God, the Lord, the God of all men, is one God, essentially, though three persons. From this unity of God it follows, that we owe all our love to him alone. #Deut 6:4|.


Discussion for Mark 12

  • Wayne Dent
    All have fallen short but God's grace and mercy through His son's willful obedience has saved us. We are asked only to believe doubting nothing. There is too much focus on the darkness these days. Light dispels the darkness. We need His word more than ever. His word is light and will cut through the lie of this world.
