The Good Samaritan, Part Two

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 4

Luke 10:25  (ID: 2138)

As Jesus responded to the question “Who is my neighbor?” He undermined the ideas of status in the community of God’s people. His words teach us that good works do not gain us entry into heaven, but rather are evidence that a person belongs to Christ. In light of this reality, Alistair Begg helps us understand that the familiar story of the Good Samaritan is not a model of moral obligation, but a display of the tender mercy of a covenant-keeping God.


The Parable of the Good Samaritan

25And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”
