John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

29 - At the last supper, Jesus celebrated the Passover meal with his apostles. He said, “This is by body”…. Protestant theology states that Jesus’ words were to be taken only figuratively.

Hint - see the following related scripture passages: Matthew 5: 25-26; Luke 12: 58-59; Matthew 12:36; Matthew 5:48; Revelation 21:27; 1 Corinthians 3: 11-15; 2 Samuel 1: 12.
