Abstract The article addresses the controversial interpretation of the phrase «my commandments» (plural) in the mouth of Jesus, in John’s Gospel. It is to be understood against the threefold background of the new covenant according to Jer 31,31-34 and Ezek 36,26-27, the tradition of the eschatological Prophet like Moses in Deut 18,15-19, and the intrinsic connection between loving God and keeping his commandments in Deut 6,4-5. The expression implies a very high Christological statement: Only he, who is one with the Father, can demand obedience to his own commandments as a sign of his followers’ love for him.
