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. ~John 3:16
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.”
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
