454. The Bad News from The Good Samaritan

Part 3 of our look at the parable of The Good Samaritan. A lawyer had asked Jesus how he may obtain eternal life, and this inspired the parable. Afterwards, Jesus asked the lawyer who he thought was a good neighbor. The man responded, "The one who showed mercy." Jesus said, "Go and do the same." (Or "do likewise"). In the context of the lawyer's question and the parable, "go and do the same" was not an exhortation to show mercy, but was the Lord's way of ministering the impossible standard of perfection that the law demanded.
