Sect. 135. THE PHARISEES REJOICE OVER THE ROUT OF THE SADDUCEES AND A PHARISAIC LAWYER ASKS JESUS A LEGAL QUESTION

In the Court of the Temple. (_Tuesday_)

Mark 12:28-34 |Matt. 22:34-40 | 28 And one of the scribes came, |34 But the Pharisees, when they and heard them questioning | heard that he had put the together, and knowing that he | Sadducees to silence, gathered had answered them well, asked |35 themselves together. And one of him, | them, a lawyer, asked him a | question, tempting him, What commandment is the |36 [1]Master, which is the great first

of all [_see Deut. 6:4_]?|37 commandment in the law? And he 29 Jesus answered, The first is, | said unto him, Hear, O Israel; [3]The Lord our| God [_see Deut. 6:4_], the Lord| 30 is one: and thou shalt love the| Thou shalt love Lord thy God [4]with all thy | the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and [4]with all thy | heart, and with all thy soul, soul, and [4]with all thy mind,|38 and with all thy mind. This is and [4]with all thy strength | the great and first 31 [_see Deut. 6:5_]. The second |39 commandment. [2]And a second is this, Thou shalt love thy | like _unto it_ is this, Thou neighbor as thyself [_see Lev. | shalt love thy neighbour as 19:18_]. There is none other |40 thyself. On these two commandment greater than these.| commandments hangeth the whole 32 And the scribe said unto him, | law, and the prophets. Of a truth, [1]Master, thou | 33 hast well said that he is one; and there is none other but he: and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices [_see 1 34 Sam. 15:22_]. And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
