Letters to the Editor

Verse was first in Old Testament

I would think that with Mr. James Thorndyke’s Bible acumen (June 11 letter, “Country in moral decline”) he would know that the quote he attributes to Jesus in Matthew 22:37 was first found in Deuteronomy 6:5, the only difference being the word “might” is in Deuteronomy, and “mind” in Matthew.
