A Topical Scripture Cross Reference Study On Love

  • The Greatest Commandment:
          -"When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them [a scholar of the law] tested him by asking, 'Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?' He said to him, 'You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments." (Matthew 22:36-40)
  • Testimonial From Leviticus:
          -"You shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart. Though you may have to reprove your fellow man, do not incur sin because of him. Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your fellow countrymen. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord." (Leviticus 19:17-18)
  • Testimonial From Deuteronomy:
          -"Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength." (Deuteronomy 6:5)
          -"Now, therefore, Israel, what does the Lord, your God, ask of you but to fear the Lord, your God, to follow in all his ways, to love and serve the Lord, your God, with your whole heart and with your whole being." (Deuteronomy 10:12)
  • Testimonial From Joshua:
          -"But be very careful to observe the precept and Law of Moses, the servant of the LORD, enjoined upon you: love the LORD, your God; follow him faithfully; keep his commandments; remain loyal to him; and serve him with your whole heart and soul." (Joshua 22:5)
  • Testimonial From Romans:
          -"...and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this saying, [namely] 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' Love does no evil to the neighbor; hence, love is the fulfillment of the law." (Romans 13:9-10)
  • Testimonial From Galatians:
          -"For the whole law is fulfilled in one statement, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:14)
  • Testimonial From James:
          -"However, if you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself,' you are doing well." (James 2:8)
  • Testimonial From First John:
          -"We know that we have passed from death to life because we love our brothers. Whoever does not love remains in death." (1 John 3:14)
