    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:34

    Un mandamiento nuevo os doy: Que os ameis unos a otros; como os he amado, que tambin os amis los unos a los otros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 13:34

    Verse 34. A new
    commandment I give unto you] In what sense are we to understand that this was a new commandment? Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, was a positive precept of the law, Lev. xix. 18, and it is the very same that Christ repeats here; how then was it new? Our Lord answers this question, Even AS I have loved you. Now Christ more than fulfilled the Mosaic precept; he not only loved his neighbour AS himself, but he loved him MORE than himself, for he laid down his life for men. In this he calls upon the disciples to imitate him; to be ready on all occasions to lay down their lives for each other. This was, strictly, a new commandment: no system of morality ever prescribed any thing so pure and disinterested as this. Our blessed Lord has outdone all the moral systems in the universe in two words: 1. Love your enemies; 2. Lay down your lives for each other.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 34. A new
    commandment I give unto you , etc.] As parents, when they take their leave of their children, in their dying moments, give them proper instructions and orders, and lay their dying injunctions on them, so Christ taking his leave of his disciples, gives them his; which were, that they love one another : as brethren in the same family, children of the same Father, and fellow disciples with each other; by keeping and agreeing together, praying one for another, bearing one anothers burdens, forbearing and forgiving one another, admonishing each other, and building up one another in faith and holiness: and this he calls a new commandment; that is, a very excellent one; as a new name, and a new song, denote excellent ones; or it is so called, because it is set forth by Christ, in a new edition of it, and newly and more clearly explained, than before; and being enforced with a new argument and pattern, never used before, as I have loved you ; and to be observed in a new manner, not in the oldness of the letter, but in the newness of the spirit: besides, though this commandment, as to the matter of it, is the same with that of Moses, ( Leviticus 19:18); yet it takes in more, and new objects; since by neighbour there, seems to be meant the children of their people, the Jews; and so they understood it only of their countrymen, and of proselytes at furthest, whereas this reaches to any other person; (see Romans 13:8); and as the measure, as well as the motive is new, for it is not now as thy self, but as I have loved you, the Jew has no reason to object as he does f591 , to its being called a new commandment: and its being new, carries in it a reason or argument, why it should be observed, as does also the following clause; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another ; than which, nothing can, or should, more strongly engage to it: as Christ has loved his people freely, notwithstanding all their unworthiness and ungratefulness, so should they love one another, though there may be many things in them observable, which are disagreeable; as Christ loves all his children without any distinction, so should they love one another, whether poor or rich, weaker or stronger, lesser or greater believers; and as Christ loves them not in word only, but in deed and in truth, so should they love one another with a pure heart fervently, and by love serve one another.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 31-35 -
    Christ had been glorified in many miracles he wrought, yet he speaks of his being glorified now in his sufferings, as if that were more tha all his other glories in his humbled state. Satisfaction was thereb made for the wrong done to God by the sin of man. We cannot now follo our Lord to his heavenly happiness, but if we truly believe in him, we shall follow him hereafter; meanwhile we must wait his time, and do his work. Before Christ left the disciples, he would give them a ne commandment. They were to love each other for Christ's sake, an according to his example, seeking what might benefit others, an promoting the cause of the gospel, as one body, animated by one soul But this commandment still appears new to many professors. Men in general notice any of Christ's words rather than these. By this it appears, that if the followers of Christ do not show love one to another, they give cause to suspect their sincerity.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    34. New (kainhn). See on
    Matt. xxvi. 29.

    Commandment (entolhn). The word for a single commandment or injunction, but used also for the whole body of the moral precepts of Christianity. See 1 Tim. vi. 14; 2 Pet. ii. 21; iii. 2. See also on Jas. ii. 8. This new commandment embodies the essential principle of the whole law. Compare also 1 John iii. 23. Some interpreters instead of taking that ye love one another, etc., as the definition of the commandment, explain the commandment as referring to the ordinance of the Holy Communion, and render, "a new commandment (to observe this ordinance) I give unto you, in order that ye love one another." It is, however, more than improbable, and contrary to usage, that the Holy Supper should be spoken of as ejntolh a commandment.

    That (ina). With its usual telic 45 force; indicating the scope and not merely the form or nature of the commandment.

    As (kaqwv). Rev., better, even as. Not a simple comparison (wsper), but a conformity; the love is to be of the same nature. There are, however, two ways of rendering the passage.

    1. "I give you a new commandment, that ye love one another with the same devotion with which I loved you."

    2. "I give you a new commandment, that ye love one another, even as up to this moment I loved you, in order that you may imitate my love one toward another." By the first rendering the character of the mutual love of Christians is described; by the second, its ground. The Rev. gives the latter in margin.
