The Epistle of Paul To The Galatians Chapter 5:13-15
(12 of 15)
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty;
only [use] not liberty for an occasion to the flesh,
but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in
this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Keeping the law is vain for this reason also. Love is
higher than law. Rather than being in bondage to the
Law, the Galatians were to be in bondage to one

and with all thy strength: this is the first
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt
love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other

32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou
hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there
is none other but he:
33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all
the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all
the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is
more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he
said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of
God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
Jesus affirmed the same truth saying that loving God
first and foremost, and one’s neighbor, was better
than all whole burnt offerings an sacrifice. Why?
