The Law of God
(Edition 3.0 19990525-20110925-20120905)
The Commanded Reading of the Law on the
Sabbath year at Tabernacles explaining the structure of Biblical Law and the
Prophets is contained in this comprehensive series of papers centred on the Two
Great Commandments. Scripturally they are required reading for any professing
Mark 12:29-31: “Jesus answered him, "The first of all the
commandments is: 'HEAR, O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.
AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR
SOUL, WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.'
This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this:
'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' There is no other commandment
greater than these."”
In this quote from Mark Jesus is reminding those who asked him that
there is only ONE Almighty God and that the greatest commandment is not only love, but also to acknowledge that the object of our worship
is to be only ONE, Eloah.
