Text: LUKE 10:25-37 AMP
“And a certain lawyer [an expert in Mosaic Law] stood up to test Him, saying, “Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” And he replied, “Y OU SHALL 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 YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.” Jesus said to him, “You have answered correctly; DO THIS habitually AND YOU WILL LIVE.” But he, wishing to justify and vindicate himself, asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he encountered robbers, who stripped him of his clothes [and belongings], beat him, and went their way [unconcerned], leaving him half dead. Now by coincidence a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite also came down to the place and saw him, and passed by on the other side [of the road]. But a Samaritan (foreigner), who was traveling, came upon him; and when he saw him, he was deeply moved with compassion [for him], and went to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them [to sooth and disinfect the injuries]; and he put him on his own pack-animal, and brought him to an inn and took care of him. On the next day he took out two denarii (two days’ wages) and gave them to the innkeeper, and said, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I return.’ Which of these three do you think proved himself a neighbor to the man who encountered the robbers?” He answered, “The one who showed compassion and mercy to him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and constantly do the same.””

During the Judean Ministry of Jesus, He had an encountered with LAWYER! Or a Teacher of Torah.

This man answered and said - Love God with all thy Might and Love thy neighbour .
:- And Jesus said you have spoken well.
But in an attempt to: Justify himself He Asked WHO IS MY NEIGHBOUR?
:- Jesus responded with a Parable of the Good Samaritan. Jesus knew the intent of heart of the lawyer as such.

:- Your action speak much about your faith or what you believe.
:- Your life will be an example of either good or bad.
WHO IS YOUR NEIGHBOUR?
1. Whom you see Christ in his life.
2. Whom his ready to sacrifice himself.
3. Our neighbour is anyone who is in need and who we have the opportunity to help.
When Jesus said who is thy neighbour: He said the one that show mercy or show love" (1Cor13:
