I am impressed at how much Jesus refers to “the book of Moses” (the first 5 books of the O.T.) and other “scripture” such as Psalms and Isaiah. It really hit me when he said, “Are you not in error because you do not know the scriptures or the power of God?”
It reminds me of when Paul says to Timothy, “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be throughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim 3:16)
Paul was referring to the same scripture that Jesus was referring to, the Old Testament. So we as believers better know what’s in there as well!
I also pondered “The most important” command (12:29-31). And I thought to my self, how do you “love the Lord?’ Well…..I found the answer! 2 John 6- “And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands.”
I better know scripture so that I know what his commands are! Hey…., I know one already!!! To believe!!! That’s one of his commands! (1John 4:23). I can do that!! 😄
