Jesus is asked the big question - and He gives
the big answer. Notice that he does not give the usual Gospel of John answer
about believing in Jesus. Instead, since he is asked as a test of Hebrew
orthodoxy; he gives what we might call the “Hebrew” answer. In everyday use we
tend to shorten this to “love God and your neighbour” We tend to:
·Leave out the “With all your heart” part.
·Define neighbour too narrowly
·Skim over the “as yourself part”
Jesus deepened, widened and strengthened the
definition of love.
