Love thy neighbor

“I give you a New Commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. (John 13: 34-35)
Near the end of the life of Jesus on earth he talked with the disciples about a New Commandment which is in the scripture given above. Actually if we look at those words we might say there are elements of the old commandment there which first appeared in Leviticus 19:18: “ Love your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus later quoted these words along with the words about loving God with heart, mind, soul and strength.
