King James Version (KJV)
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

SUMMARY AND LIFE APPLICATION:
MATTHEW 22:34-40: VERSE BY VERSE STUDY "Master, which is the great commandment in the law?" PART 1: v34: But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
V34: They were gathered together - they came together with one accord, or, for the same purpose; i.e. of trying to ensnare him in his discourse, as the Sadducees had tried, Matthew 22:23.
Further Study v34: But when the Pharisees had heard,.... Either with their own ears, they being some of them present: or rather from the relation of others, from the Scribes, who expressed their approbation of Christ's answer to the Sadducees; for the Pharisees, with the Herodians, in a body, had left him, and were gone to their respective places of abode; or to them that sent them, being baffled and confounded by him: but now hearing
that he had put the Sadducees to silence, or stopped their mouths, having nothing to reply, which itself, was not disagreeable; for they were as opposite as could be to them in the doctrine of the resurrection, and in other things, and were their sworn and avowed enemies: and yet it sadly gravelled them, that Christ should be too hard for, and get the victory over all sects among them. #godsword #kingjamesversion #God #socialmedia #instagram #christian #jesus #christ #bible #bibleverse #verseoftheday #biblestudy
