See how they love one another ...

From H. Benedict Green's commentary (OUP) on Saint Matthew's Gospel:

"... one has only to read the controversial writings of such outstanding Christians as Luther or Thomas More, to say nothing of the Fathers of the Church, to realise how recently religious controversy has come to be conducted with even elementary courtesy ..."

The context is the tensions between the earliest Christians and their Jewish contemporaries.
