What is the correct use of quotation marks for a quiote within a quote?
In the example, Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep My word." should there be Quotation marks before 'Jesus' to show that it is in itself a quotation, and finish with two sets of quotation marks?
If you want to quote something within a quote, use this: ' '. For the example you have given, it will look like this:
"Jesus answered and said to him, 'If anyone loves me, he will keep My word.'"
What cheerfulnuts writes is correct. If you can construct the sentence so that the single quote and the double quote do not abut each other, so much the better.
In your example Jesus answered and said to him...no quotations marks are needed because it is a paraphrase. But this applies to the person who wrote the scripture.
But when you quote the actual words said by someone else, then quotation marks are needed. In this case because you are quoting what someone said that Jesus said, then quotation marks are needed; "Jesus answered and said to him, " if anyone loves me, he will keep My word".
