Fun Stuff

From "Jesus of Nazareth: Part 2 (#1.2)" (1977)
Jesus Christ: What is the heart of the law?
Joseph of Arimathea: "Hear, O Israel, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy strength." This is the greatest commandment.
Jesus Christ: You have said well. You are not far from the Kingdom of God, Joseph of Arimathea. But there is another commandment, no less greater: you must love your neighbor as yourself.
