Kids Korner: The greatest commandments (October 31st)

Read Mark 12:28-34 with your family. This story happens after Jesus has entered Jerusalem and everyone celebrated his arrival.

In this passage Jesus is quoting the Hebrew Scriptures:

Deuteronomy 6:4-5 says “Israel, listen! Our God is the Lord! Only the Lord! Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your being, and all your strength.”

Leviticus 19:18 says: “You must not take revenge nor hold a grudge against any of your people; instead, you must love your neighbour as yourself; I am the Lord.”

Jesus was able to prove to the scribes that he knew scripture and was not teaching anything against the teachings of God.
