This is number 12 in our first series of “Get Biblical Understanding.” In this session we’re concluding our review of many but certainly not all of the biblical verses that have to do with love. As we’ve been saying, there is no other scriptural topic more important than this one. So we thought we would end this series with a recap of some of the very precious love verses.
Mark:12:29-30 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
