Ok great. I’m now understanding you to say that the ‘love commandment’ of John 13:34 is the only one in effect, but that the Ten Commandments—alone, of all Jewish law—defines and clarifies what ‘love’ means.

Also, that the ‘commandment’ is now ‘personal’, which I think is your way of saying you’re not executing the punishments of Jewish law.

Is that your view? My mind is full of questions.

How do you isolate the Ten Commandments as the only part of Jewish law you’d use to define ‘love’?

How do you follow them, but remove the punishments?

And how do you evade the impression I’m getting from James 2:10 and Galatians 5:3 . . . that if you follow one part of Jewish law, you have to do it all.
