Questions People Ask (Fr O’Flynn- Intercom)
Q. Why did Jesus call his teaching about loving one another a new commandment? The Old Testament already had that teaching. What was new in Jesus’ teaching?
A. Jesus was speaking of a standard of love that is new in its source, model and scope. The source of Christian love is the Holy Spirit by whose supernatural power a person can go far beyond the sort of love based on natural attraction. The model of this loving is Jesus, ‘as I have loved you’. His love inspired him to give up his life for us. The scope of Christian love is all-inclusive. It is not confined to those we get on with, it does not depend on conditions, it overcomes injustice and finds the energy of forgiveness. Christian love is supernatural.
