Volume 4
Matthew

   A man walked up to Jesus and asked, "What must I do to inherit life in the Age to Come?" In other words, the man asked, "What must I do to be saved?"

   Jesus' answer is the most important part of the entire New Testament. After all, what could be more important than Jesus' own answer to: "What must I do to be saved?"

   Did Jesus answer, "Just believe in me"? No, this wasn't his response.

   Did Jesus answer, "Keep the entire Old Testament moral code"? No, this wasn't his response either.

   When Jesus was asked, "What must I do to be saved?" Jesus aswered, "Keep every precept related to brotherly love":

   A man came up to Jesus and said, “Rabbi, what good thing can I do to inherit life in the Age to Come?

   Jesus said to him, “Why ask me about that which is good. There is only one who is good! But if you want to inherit the life of the Age to Come, keep the commandments.”

   The man said, “Which ones?”

   Jesus said, “‘Don’t murder,’ ‘don’t commit adultery,’ ‘don’t steal,’ ‘don’t bear false witness,’ ‘honor your father and thy mother’—‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” — Matthew 19.16-19

   The Faith was founded upon the Old Testament precepts related to brotherly love. This is why Paul wrote that only these precepts are the Law (Romans 13.8-9). This is also why James wrote that the King's Law is "Love your neighbor as yourself," and then he immediately affirmed the precepts "don't murder" and "don't commit adultery" (James 2.8-11).

   Since these precepts were the foundation of the Faith, they are the foundation of the Golden Rule BibleTM translation as well.
