In Matthew 5:43-48, Jesus informs His hearers of six demanding truths that characterize the Kingdom way, which is the heart of Old Testament law. Jesus teaches:

  • Thou Shalt Love Your Enemies (Matt 5:43-48)
  • Jesus gives the letter of the command (Matt 5:43)
  • Jesus gives the spirit of the command (Matt 5:44-45a)
  • Jesus illustrates the Father’s heart behind the command (Matt 5:45b-47)
  • Jesus gives an impossible command (Matt 5:48)


  • All Hail the King of Heaven
  • Here is Love (142)
  • Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery (116)
  • Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor
  • Holy Spirit, Living Breath of God (247)
