In the the “Old” Testament the heart is not merely the seat of the feelings but also of thought. In Deuteronomy 6:5 we read: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. The Greek of the New Testament distinguishes heart from mind: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart (kardia), and with all thy soul (psyche), and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind (dianoia)… (Luke 10:27). Jesus is speaking. Here is the context in Luke 10:
25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” 27 And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” 28 And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.”
A Jew might say that because Jesus was Jewish he wouldn’t have said “and with your mind” because for a Jew the heart includes the mind. Rather, Jesus should have quoted Deuteronomy 6:5: “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” This anomaly, a Jew – for that matter many “Messianic Jews” – could very well argue, proves that Luke made the verse up and/or he was definitely not Jewish but a Greek. Wait, Just because Luke was very good at Greek, this doesn’t mean he wasn’t Jewish. (See Was Luke of the New Testament not Jewish just because he was good at Greek?).
And Matthew? He is definitely Jewish, and he quoted Jesus saying the same words recorded in Luke:
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Et tu Matthew, you brute, did the Greeks get to tu too!
As far as Jesus’ words and actions are concerned, the Jews of his time heard much worse; that is why his own siblings said he was out of his mind; and the Jewish leaders called him a son of the devil and had him killed.
Listen: Jesus created Greek, so if he wants to be Greek for a mo, who are you o man to talk back to GOD!
You asked me, “what have you proved with all this meshugas.” Isn’t it obvious: Jesus – that’s Greek ain’t it – wasn’t Jewish.
