His message was one of love.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
His mandate was rooted in love.
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers
of men.” ~Mark 1:17
His mission was love.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first
and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love
your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang
on these two commandments.” ~Matthew 22:36-40
He was the the perfect model of love.
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved
you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that
you are my disciples, if you love one another.” ~John 13:34-35
