A New Old Commandment - 1 John 2:7-11

Christian life is a life composed of fellowship with the Father and the Son, and because of that we grow spiritually, perfecting God's love in our lives, so we can live as Jesus lived: reflecting a life of love towards our neighbor.

John talks about an old commandment. Which one? Read Leviticus 19:18.
But he also says it is a new commandment. How?
What does mean "darkness is passing away"?
What are the characteristics of someone who loves his brother, according to verse 10?
What are the characteristics of someone who hates his brother, according to verses 9 and 11?

1-To seek regeneration through the new birth, so we can try the new life in Jesus;
2-To live a life based on the Word, through the meditation and study of the Bible;
3-To live a practical gospel and not a theoretical one;
4-To possess an attitude of blessing giver instead of blessing seeker.
