MK 12:28-34

A scribe approaches Jesus and asks Him to name the first commandment. Jesus says, “The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart.” He also tells the scribe the second commandment as well. The scribe agrees with Jesus, telling Him that He is right in what He is saying. Jesus notices that the scribe understands, and tells him he is not far from the Kingdom of God. This shows that the scribe truly believed in what Jesus was saying. He did not question Jesus at all. He knew that Jesus was preaching from the knowledge of God.
