Who is my “neighbor”? This is an important question. In Matthew 22:36, Jesus was asked, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” “Jesus said to him, ‘”You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets’” (Matthew 22:37-40). All of the other laws that God has given stem from these two commandments. So, if we obey them, we will obey the rest. Therefore, it is essential to understand who my neighbor is – because I cannot fulfill this commandment if I do not know who my responsibility is toward. To answer this question, we will be looking to the passage surrounding and including the parable of the good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37.
