The core teaching of Jesus

The core teaching of Jesus is as follows:

When Jesus was asked which of the commandments He esteemed to be the greatest, He replied,
‘“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’”
Matthew 22:37 NIV

Then Jesus added, “This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it:
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
Matthew 22:38-39 NIV

Jesus said further,
“All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 22:40 NIV
