Especially for Now: A New Commandment

March 29, 2018

A new command I give you:

Love one another.

As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

— Jesus, John 13:34

 

“Maundy Thursday is an alternate name for Holy Thursday, the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus.

“The English word ‘Maundy’ comes from the Latin mandatum, which means ‘commandment.’

“As recorded in John’s gospel, on his last night before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and then gave them a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them (John 13:34).” — http://www.umc.org/what-we-believe/what-is-maundy-thursday

By this everyone will know

that you are my disciples,

if you love one another.

Jesus, John 13:35
