On our previous post we discussed the conversation between Christ and the lawyer who asked Jesus what he should do to have eternal life; Jesus offers the guarantee of eternal life to this man—all he needed to do was keep the Great Commandment, which implied keeping the law of God perfection. Jesus realized that individuals, for example, the Pharisees and this legal counselor figured they completed a brilliant activity of keeping the law, and in keeping the law they would justify entrance into the kingdom of God. We likewise realize that Jesus endeavored to inspire individuals to see that on the off chance that they extremely comprehended the law, they would perceive how it uncovered our wrongdoing and our sinful nature which made it impossible for us to enter into life by observing those laws on our own. 

This legal practitioner  accepted that he was keeping the Great Commandment, thus Jesus stated, "You keep it, and you'll live. You don't have anything to stress over." But the legal advisor wasn't done with Jesus. He needed to test somewhat more profound. 

Maybe you have seen that when you're in exchanges of religious philosophy or debating certain issues with others, you regularly hear them say, "What do you mean by this?" They need you to characterize your terms. That is frequently an escape instrument from managing the issue that is on the table. This legal counselor rushed. He stated, "And who is my neighbor?" (v. 29). He was asking, "What does the law mean when it says I should love my neighbor as myself? I comprehend loving God energetically and my entire being and all my mind, yet what do you mean by 'loving  your neighbor as you love yourself '?" 

The Jews around then, especially the Pharisees, had a tight meaning of who one's neighbor was. For them, it would be a kindred Jew—a kindred equitable Jew, probably like one of the Pharisees. Unquestionably, individuals who were outside of the country of Israel were considered outside of the neighborhood of God. What's more, of every one of those outside the Jewish neighborhood, the most loathed were the Samaritans. After the Assyrian victory of the northern kingdom of Israel in 722 BC, a portion of the Jews who stayed in Israel intermarried with unbelievers and pagans and created what the Jews thought about a race of semi-Jews. The Samaritans had their own Scriptures—a shortened adaptation of the Pentateuch—and their own particular sanctuary on Mount Gerizim that they supported over the sanctuary in Jerusalem. So there was ill will between the Jews and the Samaritans. 

Jesus answers the legal advisor's question concerning the neighbor by recounting a story. He recounts the tale of a man, apparently a Jew, who went from Jerusalem down to Jericho. This was not Old Testament Jericho, where the wall  came tumbling down. This was New Testament Jericho, around seventeen miles from Jerusalem, and those seventeen miles were destroy field. New Testament Jericho was worked around an expansive desert garden. Shippers would every now and again fly out from Jerusalem down to Jericho to sell their products. It was additionally a most loved place for criminals to lie in sit tight for dealers who were voyaging alone or in unprotected little groups. They would stow away in the stones, and when evening came, they would fall after clueless explorers and rob them. 

Join us in our next post as we’re poised taking it slowly so that we don’t miss any spice of the story.
