October 29 - Session Five

For Here:
Take a look at Jesus' teaching on the greatest commandment. Then consider the questions that follow.
Matthew 22:34-40
Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question:
"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment int he law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the law and the prophets hang on these two commandments."

For discussion/reflection:
1. Why was Jesus asked about the most important commandment?
2. How do these two commandments summarize the law?
3. Have you ever lived under 'law'?
4. How is Jesus' teaching different from following the law?

To Go:
Take some time this week to read the following verses and consider what they tell us about loving God and each other. You can look them up at www.biblegateway.com.

Deuteronomy 6:4-7
Romans 13:8-10
Leviticus 19:18
Colossians 3:17, 23-24

We're always happy to hear from you! Feel free to post comments or questions.
