I have been searching for answers regarding a few questions about something Jesus said.
The original second great commandment mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 22:37-40 was first given in Leviticus 19:18, “you shall love your neighbor as yourself;”
The new commandment was given by Jesus in John 13:34, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”
Then Jesus tells us ‘how’ He loves us in John 15:9, “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you;”
So, Jesus loves us just as the Father loves Him.
Are we now to love one another (including our self) just as the Father loves Jesus?
If so, then did ‘how’ we are to love one another change with the coming of Jesus (and His finished work culminating at the cross), from being defined by the Mosaic Law to being defined by how the Father loves Jesus?
Any help in directing me to materials or persons that can help answer these questions would be greatly appreciated.
