Love is the Fulfilment of the Law. Who Said That?

The first part of the headline here is a direct lift from Scripture, from Romans. It’s funny how some Bible verses get repeated over and over, while for others it’s almost as though they don’t exist. Jesus’ command to “love your enemies” is one that receives far too little attention. And this one from Paul seems to be almost unknown. Yet they are both very simple and very clear, and easily make the basis for a complete theology, without the need for anyone to write a book on them.

Love your enemies. Love is the fulfilment of the Law.
