Mark Chapter 22

The great commandment, 12.28-34

(Mt 22.34-40; Lk 10.25-28)

Mark. 28One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him,

Scribe. “Which commandment is the first of all?”

Mark. 29 Jesus answered,

Jesus. “The first is,

Moses. (D)(‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; 30 you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ h)

Jesus. 31The second is this,

Moses: (P)(‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ i)

Jesus. There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Mark. 32Then the scribe said to him,

Scribe. “You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that

Moses.(D)(‘he is one, and besides him there is no other’; j)

Scribe. 33 and

Moses. (D)(‘to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength,’ k)

Scribe. and

Moses. (D)(‘to love one’s neighbor as oneself,’ l)

Scribe. —this is much more important than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” m

Mark. 34When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him,

Jesus. “You are not far from the kingdom of God.”

Mark. After that no one dared to ask him any question.
