Hang

Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, ‘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 NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ On These two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

What if we read the last sentence without the word On? Would our understanding of the importance of what Jesus is saying become clearer? Could we finally truly know that the law and the prophets only bring death and that Jesus came to show us that God’s intent was and is always life?

  1. Thanks for sharing this! I didnt check if “on” is in the original Greek but one Sunday as someone read this I had some flash of Jesus “hanging” “on” the cross.
    Ps–someone shared with me about the new commandment Jesus gave–love one another as I loved you…so no longer as we love ourselves, but as He loved us. Love as Sacrifice. The heat is going to be turned up in this world, but something so beautiful, so precious and fragrant, so like Him is going to come forth–and in it, the World will finally see so that we can all come Home.
