The Golden Rule

Check Your Heart // Part 13
Matthew 7:12 

The golden rule sums up the essence and heart of all of the law and prophets (the vast majority of the OT). The golden rule isn’t original with Jesus as Confucius, Buddha, Tobit, and Rabbi Hillel all even use it 20-500 years before Jesus. However, Jesus is the first person to put it into active voice, meaning instead of focusing on how not to treat others, he puts emphasis on the idea that we should be actively treating others well. This shows us the essence of who Jesus is and who we are to be - actively loving others into relationship with Jesus.
