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.

Apparently you have not read the whole Gospel of John (or the rest of the N.T.) nor do you understand the relationship and theology found in the N.T. concerning Jesus and the Father.

Hi Albert David, WELCOME TO CF :)

 

I assume, considering your thread title and the verses you put together in a group for us beneath it, that you don't believe that Jesus Christ is God. It that's true, then who and what do you believe Him to be, specifically?

 

Thanks!

 

Yours and His,

David

 

 

"Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto

you, before Abraham was, I am"

John 8:58
