Scriptures: Luke 10:25-37; I Corinthians 13:7 What made the certain Samaritan good? A certain lawyer, one who studied the Torah, asked Jesus what shall he do to inherit eternal life.

The lawyer responded with the answer from the law in Deuteronomy 6:5, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, strength and mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.” Willing to justify himself, he asked who was his neighbor.
