Bible: Mark 12:28-33

The Greatest Commandment

12:28 Now 1  one of the experts in the law 2  came and heard them debating. When he saw that Jesus 3  answered them well, he asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all? 12:29 Jesus answered, “The most important is: ‘Listen, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 12:30 Love 4  the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 5  12:31 The second is:Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 6  There is no other commandment greater than these.” 12:32 The expert in the law said to him, “That is true, Teacher; you are right to say that he is one, and there is no one else besides him. 7  12:33 And to love him with all your heart, with all your mind, and with all your strength 8  and to love your neighbor as yourself 9  is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
