Acts 15:28-29 Amplified Bible (AMP)
28 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to place on you any greater burden than these essentials:
29 that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols, and from [consuming] blood,
and from [eating the meat of] things that have been strangled,
and from sexual impurity.
If you keep yourselves from these things, you will do well. Farewell.”
John 15:12-13 Amplified Bible (AMP)
12 “This is My commandment, that you love and
unselfishly seek the best for one another,
just as I have loved you.
13 No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends.

you will do well. Farewell.”

2 Those who think they know something do not yet know anything as they should.
26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?”
