Which Commandment does the Bible tell us is the more important: Thou shalt not kill, or Love thy neighbor as thyself?

This is one of those Qs we absolutely know the answer to. It's one of the few instances in the Bible where personal interpretation is not required for understanding.

In both Mark 12:28-31 and Matthew 22:36-40, the Christ is asked which is the greatest commandment. He answers by stating what appears in Deut 6:5 (love thy God) and Lev 19:18 (love thy Neighbor).

He concludes by saying in Matt that all other laws flow from these two.

Love thy neighbor is the more important.

I thought Mose retrieved the ten commandments and not Reverent Al.

Moses actually wrote 10C guided by God. There's also multiple versions of what the 10 are depending on denomination/religion.

Reverend Al, I'm sure, could have told you that as well.
