Matthew 22:32-40 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

32 I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob?[a] He[b] is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”

33 And when the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.

The Primary Commands

34 When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they came together. 35 And one of them, an expert in the law, asked a question to test him: 36 “Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?”

37 He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.[c] 38 This is the greatest and most important[d] command. 39 The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.[e] 40 All the Law and the Prophets depend[f] on these two commands.”
