“This is my commandment!
That you love
As I have loved you.”
αὕτη ἐστὶν ἡ ἐντολὴ ἡ ἐμὴ, ἵνα ἀγαπᾶτε ἀλλήλους καθὼς ἠγάπησα ὑμᾶς.
John uniquely indicated that Jesus said that this was his commandment (αὕτη ἐστὶν ἡ ἐντολὴ ἡ ἐμὴ) that they were to love one another (ἵνα ἀγαπᾶτε ἀλλήλους) as he had loved them (καθὼς ἠγάπησα ὑμᾶς). Jesus clearly stated that his commandment was one of love. They were to love each other as he had loved them, plain and simple. They were to infuse divine love into their friendships with each other. Do you love others as Jesus loves you?
