22 ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΘΘΑΙΟΝ Matthew Reference
34Οἱ δὲ Φαρισαῖοι ἀκούσαντες ὅτι ἐφίμωσεν τοὺς Σαδδουκαίους συνήχθησαν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό. Hearing that he had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees met together;The Great Commandment Mt.22.34-40 | Mk.12.28-34 | Lk.10.25-28
35καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν εἷς ἐξ αὐτῶν [νομικὸς] πειράζων αὐτόν, and one of their number tested him with this question: 
36Διδάσκαλε, ποία ἐντολὴ μεγάλη ἐν τῷ νόμῳ; 'Master, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?' 
37ὁ δὲ ἐφη αὐτῷ, Ἀγαπήσεις κύριον τὸν θεόν σου ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ καρδίᾳ σου καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ ψυχῇ σου καὶ ἐν ὁλῃ τῇ διανοίᾳ σου· He answered, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind."- You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart Mt.22.37 | Dt.6.5 | Jos.22.5
38αὑτη ἐστὶν ἡ μεγάλη καὶ πρώτη ἐντολή. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. 
39δευτέρα δὲ ὁμοία αὐτῇ, Ἀγαπήσεις τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς σεαυτόν. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself."- You shall love your neighbour as yourself. Mt.22.39 | Lv.19.18
40ἐν ταύταις ταῖς δυσὶν ἐντολαῖς ὁλος ὁ νόμος κρέμαται καὶ οἱ προφῆται. Everything in the Law and the prophets hangs on these two commandments.'
