Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. (NIV)
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (KJV)
- John 15:13
This is a reference to the supreme evidence and expression of Jesus' love (v. 12), His sacrificial death upon the cross. Christians are called to exemplify the same kind of sacrificial giving toward one another, even if such sacrifice involves the laying down of one's own life in imitation of Christ's example (cf. 1 John 3:16).
