Romans 13 Love
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another
hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill,
Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if
there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt
love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is
the fulfilling of the law.
Romans 13 (vss. 8f)
Perhaps the greatest thematic confluence in all Scripture is found in the interweaving of the
Three Threads around the
Number n13 and the ideas of Love and Unity. The meaning of the Number n13 is established with absolute,
overwhelming clarity in the Unity Holograph (the Shema), declared
to be the greatest commandment by both the Jews and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. This then manifests in
the content of the little book of Philemon on Spoke 13 (cf. For
Love's Sake) and ultimately in
the detailed supernatural structure of the n13 verses of I Corinthians n13 which is nothing
less than the greatest statement of Love ever composed in the history of the Universe, composed
by God Himself and known to all as the Bible's great Love Chapter.
To find the declaration that "love is the
fulfillment of the Law" here in Romans 13 only confirms a pattern already established
with absolute certainty elsewhere.
