Easter

 

"Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another."
(John 13:34)

Fifth Sunday of Easter

The New Commandment

John 13:31 When he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.
John 13:32 If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once.
John 13:33 Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, 'Where I am going, you cannot come.'
John 13:34 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.
John 13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

NSRV & Believer's Study Bible (BSB) Notes

[John 13:34] (vv. 34, 35) The new commandment is "new" in contrast to the old (cf. Lev. 19:18; Luke 10:27) and has a new motive ("as I have loved you") and a new scope. The whole world is to distinguish Christ's disciples not by mighty acts, but in the kind of love Jesus exhibited as seen in His disciples' acts of love and concern (cf. 1 John 3:14).
