People's Bible Notes for Matthew 22:38


Mt 22:38 This is the first and great. First, in that it precedes the second that he is about to name; great, because it embraces all others; He who loves God supremely cannot live in disobedience to him.

Discussion for Matthew 22:38

  • Nkosinathi Ngulube for verse 38
    We 've been given the only formula to take and there 's no other besides this one!
  • FRAGILE INNOCENT AVESTA for verse 38
    It really touches heart.
  • I increasingly think that we should just stop at the "first and great commandment" and the "second [that] is like unto it". Children of Abraham unite, because that is what the Lord our God has commanded us to do.
