The Great Commission

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. --Matthew 28:18-20

The Great Commandment or Greatest Commandment is a term used in the New Testament to describe the first of two commandments cited by Jesus in Matthew 22:35-40. The two commandments are also found in Mark 12:28-34 and Luke 10:25-28. 

In Matthew, when asked "which is the great commandment in the law?",  Jesus answered, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind", before also referring to a second commandment, "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself". This double reference has given rise to differing views with regard to the relationship that exists between the two commandments, although typically "love thy God" is referred to as "the first and greatest commandment", with "love thy neighbour" being referred to outside the Bible as "the second great commandment".
