JOHN QUOTED WHAT JESUS SAID IN JOHN 13:34 AND HE CLARIFY THE REAL MEANING OF LOVE ON 1JOHN 2:7 AND 2JOHN 1:5-6. IS IT CLEAR THAT THE COMMANDMENT OF LOVE IS JUST THE SAME AS THE OLD COMMAND?
And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. (John 13:34) 7 My dear friends, this command I am writing you is not new; it is the old command, the one you have had from the very beginning. The old command is the message you have already heard. (1John 2:7) And so I ask you, dear Lady: let us all love one another. This is no new command I am writing you; it is the command which we have had from the beginning. This love I speak of means that we must live in obedience to God’s commands. The command, as you have all heard from the beginning, is that you must all live in love. (2John 1:5-6)
