COMMANDMENT pt . 1

DANIEL JUSTER
The First Commandment is that YHWH our God is our God alone and we are to love Him with all our heart , soul , and strength . ( Deut . 6:5 ; Luke 10:27 )
The second commandment from Yeshua is that we must love our neighbors as ourselves . ( Mark 12:31 ) This calling to love our neighbor includes everyone in our sphere of relationships , including our spouses , neighbors , and also our children .
But as seen in Luke 10 with Yeshua ’ s parable of the Good Samaritan ( 20:30- 37 ), we note that even the enemy is a neighbor , whereas the Samaritan treated his enemy as one to be loved .
These two are the summary commands and in some way include the 10 commandments and all the other universal commandments of the Torah and even the New Covenant Scriptures . Why ?
