66. How did Jesus Christ summarise the Ten Commandments in one double commandment?
“‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
Jesus Christ is the only person who fully fulfilled God’s holy law. That is why He could become our Saviour.
- In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. (Ephesians 1:7)
