A New Command
A New Command?
Many say that Christ was giving His disciples a new command instead of simply expounding on an existing command for the first time when He said,
“A new command I give you. Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
“As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
This is where Christ expounds on His example of what He called the second greatest command. [See Matthew 22:37-39.]
“Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD”
If we say that Christ was giving a new command then we are making Him to be a sinner because that means He was adding to the word of God. For the word says,
“Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you.”
So, is your Christ a sinner?
Just a thought.
