If any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye have love one to another.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friend.
If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
They that are whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father and ye in me, and I in you.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see light. For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
(1 John 1:5)
He that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
Love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
If ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
(2 Corinthians 12:9)
Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scriptures cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.John15
And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost Matthew28
He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven Luke10
Revelation 21 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
Revelation 22 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

The other day, it occurred to me to make a leather bound Bible from just the book of John, 1,2,3 John and Revelation.
24 This is the disciple who testifies of these things, and wrote these things; and we know that his testimony is true.
Who is the only disciple Jesus testifies about saying his words are true? Are there any others? Not sure. I'll need to check on that. I know many people do not like Paul. I also know the Gospel accounts do not seem to agree in places. This verse, to me, is very interesting. I am not sure. Too much to juggle in the mind at one time figuring it out.
You are right though, love is the one word we need. It's THE word.
"I and the Father are one."
AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH; so they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."
Show no pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.' But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
"Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear.
"All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."
