The Greatest Commandment

When the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they came together. And one of them, an expert in the law, asked a question to test Him: Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “Love Yahweh your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.”—Matthew 22:34-40

I wonder why when the Pharisees were trying to test Yeshua, (because they were trying to prove He taught against Torah) and they asked Him which command in the law is the greatest He quoted from Torah…Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18. And then I wonder why Yeshua would say that, if He came to abolish the Law…hmmm…using the Law to abolish the Law…is that even possible? And then, “All the Law and Prophets depend on these two commands.” So if we obey the Law…we fulfill these commandments and vice versa…if we obey these two commands…we fulfill the Law. Interesting…

Just some wonderings to think on…
