    What is the "New Commandment"? Empty What is the "New Commandment"?

    What is the "New Commandment"?

    Jesus said, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love o­ne another; as I have loved you." John 13:34. Christ's command "to love" was not new. Moses said, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." Lev. 19:18.

    What is new is the words, "as I have loved you." How has Jesus loved us?
    By dying o­n the cross for our sins of breaking God's law! 1 Cor. 15:3; 1 John 3:4. Christ's "new" commandment should not lead to breaking the Big Ten, for this Jesus never did. Paul wrote, "love is the fulfilling of the law." Romans 13:10.

    Through grace, love will endeavor to fulfill each of the Ten Commandments. 1 John 5:3.

    Love does not seek the lowest requirement, but the highest.
