And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Jesus saying, "Teacher, what
shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
Jesus said to him, "What is written in the law? What is
your reading of it?"
So the lawyer answered and said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all
your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself."
And Jesus said to him, "You have answered correctly; do this and you shall live." But he, wanting
to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
Then Jesus answered and said, "A certain man went down from
Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and
departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a certain priest came down the road. And when
he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came
and looked, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, went over
to where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his
wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took
care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarri, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him,
'Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you." So which of these three
do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?
And he said, "He who showed mercy
Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."
Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch
them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly
displeased and said to his disciples, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid
them; for such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive
the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it." And Jesus took them up in
His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.
