Douglas J. Moo on Love & the Law

“For Jesus, it is not a question of the ‘priority of love over law’ but of the priority of love within the law. Love is the greatest commandment, but it is not the only one; and the validity and applicability of other commandments can not be decided by appeal to its paramount demand.”

— Douglas J. Moo, “Jesus and the Authority of the Mosaic Law” in the February 1984 issue of Journal for the Study of the New Testament, p. 11
