The Scribe Stood to Tempt Jesus – Tissot

This artwork by James Tissot shows Christ sitting with His disciples on top of a mountain, when a Jewish doctor stands to try the Divine Master. "And one of them, a doctor of the law, asking him, tempting him: 'Master, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him: 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind.' " — Mt 22:35-37
