Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 12:33

_ _ And to love him with all the heart ... and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices — more, that is, than all positive institutions; thereby showing insight into the essential difference between what is moral and in its own nature unchangeable, and what is obligatory only because enjoined, and only so long as enjoined.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 12:28-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 12:33

To love him with all the heart — To love and serve him, with all the united powers of the soul in their utmost vigour; and to love his neighbour as himself — To maintain the same equitable and charitable temper and behaviour toward all men, as we, in like circumstances, would wish for from them toward ourselves, is a more necessary and important duty, than the offering the most noble and costly sacrifices.
