Biblical Moment: Jesus Proclaims New 11th Commandment: Love One Another!

Biblical Moment: Jesus Proclaims New 11th Commandment at the Last Supper on Holy Thursday, also known as ‘Maundy’ Thursday!!!

“Maundy’ comes from the Latin word mandatum, or commandment, reflecting Jesus’ words “I give you a new commandment.”

When Judas had left, Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in Him. If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and He will glorify Him at once. My Children, I will be with you only a little while longer. You will look for Me, and as I told the Jews, ‘Where I go you cannot come,’ so now I say it to you. I give you a New Commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. This is how all will know that you are My Disciples, if you have love for one another.””John 13:31-35

—Ephesians 4:1-6
