Jesus' Authority Questioned

The Pharisees Question Jesus

Jesus' clear-sighted and unequivocal words threatened the power of the Pharisees, who sought ways to challenge him and place him in a bad light. This painting captures the way in which Jesus used their challenge as a medium for his message.

29"The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' 31The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these."
