Today in religious education, Toroa was lucky enough to be joined by Reverend Ben. We discussed what it means to love the Lord your God and to love your neighbour.
One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
We competed in a silent relay to generate as many rules as we could think of from the Bible, school, and society. Through our discussion, we found that all rules can be related back to loving one another.
We also played a fun card game called Mao, but we can't tell you the rules!
