Matthew 22:23-40 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. And last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her. Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine. But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 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. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

How do you love God? by having no other God's before him, by not taking his name in vain, by not dealing on idols or graven images, by keeping his Sabbath Day Holy, by keeping his dietary law, by keeping his Feasts, by keeping his cleanliness laws

How do you love your neighbor as you love yourself? You don't steal from them, you don't kill them, you don't lie to them or on them, you don't commit adultery with their spouse, you don't covet their things..

 

Romans 13:8-10

Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.



This is how these 2 commandments hang all the law.... This is the Love of God that we keep his commandments...

Exodus 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

1John 5:1-3 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

John 14: 14-15 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments.

1John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

Now This is the scriptures...... No interpretation...

Where are all the Lovey dovey Christians at? Who want to swap spit, and love.. You all say that these 2 commandments hang all the law.. Love one another... Can you now refute the Bible's definition of Love?
Don't mind me.. I like having fun with you all... I love all people no matter your belief.. I just hope you come into the knowledge of the true and living God, and keep his commandments, so you can get in his kingdom..
People want to say that these 2 commandments hang all the law, and when I present it, nobody wants to discuss it, but everybody wants to use it as an excuse not to keep the commandments.
Hezekiah: Now This is the scriptures...... No interpretation...

No intelligent person speaks on scripture without interpretation, and I give you the credit of being intelligent.

You wrote: "How do you love God? by having no other God's before him, by not taking his name in vain, by not dealing on idols or graven images, by keeping his Sabbath Day Holy, by keeping his dietary law, by keeping his Feasts, by keeping his cleanliness laws..." This of course is interpretation. There is no specific scripture you can quote that equates the keeping of these laws with the love of God. There are many verses in the Hebrew Scriptures that instruct Israel to both "love the Lord thy God" and "keep his commandments" [e.g., Deut. 11:1], those verses do not strip out the ceremonial and sacrificial laws as you have done with your list. Hence, this is your interpretation.

You wrote: "How do you love your neighbor as you love yourself? You don't steal from them, you don't kill them, you don't lie to them or on them, you don't commit adultery with their spouse, you don't covet their things..." But did Jesus define love of your neighbor as the keeping of the Decalogue? This is what he said about two of the ten commandments:

"Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire... Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." [Matt. 5:21,22,27,28]

Not only did Jesus extend our moral responsibility beyond the limits of "the letter," but more to the point he gave us a specific standard by which we were to express love... that of his own behavior towards us. "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another" [John 13:34]. "As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love" [John 15:9]. "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you" [John 15:12].
Hezekiah,

I have quoted the above scripture many times in many of the conversations I had with you and others on BPN. But, as Bro. Gill has explained, you cannot understand the scriptures without interpretation otherwise, you will will be unable to "rightly divide the Word."

Shalom
Interpretation: (n.) an explanation of the meaning of another's artistic or creative work

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/interpretation


2Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
For shame, Hezekiah. You willfully stepped over the primary definition of "interpretation" in the very online dictionary you gave us a link to. Instead, you chose the secondary definition to bolster your claim that you don't interpret. The whole entry is duplicated below:


in·ter·pre·ta·tion
   /ɪnˌtɜrprɪˈteɪʃən/ Show Spelled[in-tur-pri-tey-shuhn] Show IPA
–noun
1. the act of interpreting; elucidation; explication: This writer's work demands interpretation.
2. an explanation of the meaning of another's artistic or creative work; an elucidation: an interpretation of a poem.
3. a conception of another's behavior: a charitable interpretation of his tactlessness.
4. a way of interpreting.
5. the rendering of a dramatic part, music, etc., so as to bring out the meaning, or to indicate one's particular conception of it.
6. oral translation.


Whether you can admit it or not, the primary meaning of the word is elucidation. To elucidate means to throw a light upon... to make clear or plainly seen. That is what you tried to do in your initial post when you defined loving God and loving your neighbor as observing the Torah. This is what most people mean by biblical interpretation.

Now Peter declared that "no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation," and we agree. The key word is the adjective translated "private" in the KJV; the Greek ἴδιος (idios) is the same word from which we get "idiosyncratic" in English. Its use means that Peter is decrying personal, individualistic, or unique meanings. That is the wrong kind of interpretation; there is a right kind of interpretation shown in scripture. I appeal to the example of the Levites in Nehemiah 8:4-8:

"And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam. And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up: And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground. Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people stood in their place. So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading."

Biblical interpretation is in the tradition of those Levites milling through the crowd on that great day; it is giving the sense of the scripture, and causing others to understand.
Again.. I post the scripture, and man's definition, and you reply with the imagination of your heart.
You won't admit that you dodged the primary definition.
You ignore the Nehemiah passage.
And you engage in an ad hominem attack.

And you wonder why folks stop corresponding with you?
I did not dodge the primary anything.... I simply gave you a man's definition.. If you want to use the Primary definition that is fine.. What is the act of interpreting. Does that even make sense to you? How is this act performed? Nobody converses with me because most people live in their own box..
2Corinthian 11:6-8 But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things. Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely? I robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service.

2Timoth 4:1-5 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

1Peter 3:15-18 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:


2Peter 3:15-16 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
Will you not answer my questions Brother Gill?
