36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

I'm interested in language, logic and computation; particularly the roles of logic in grammar and language processing. Photo: me, Michael Moortgat and Raffaella Bernardi, Ottawa 2003. (For a putative categorial syntactic structure to be correct, a proof net, it has to contain a Girard ``long trip''.)

13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.


28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar; and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished, and gave up the ghost.


Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
