Teacher, What must I do to to inherit internal life?
What is written in the law? How do you read it?
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and, Love your neighbour as yourself.
And who is my neighbour?
So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
He went to him, bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him ,went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.
The one who had mercy on him.
Which of these three do you think was a neighbour to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?
