A Man Testing Jesus
One day a man came to Jesus. He wanted to test Jesus. The man wanted to know if Jesus was really a good teacher or not. The man asked Jesus a question, “I have heard a lot about you. I want to know from you what to do so that I can live in heaven forever?”
“Have you read the Bible?” Jesus asked the person.
The man said, “Yes, I read the Bible.”
Jesus said, “So tell me what is written about it in the Bible? What do you think about it?”
“It is written in the Bible to love your God. Love God with your soul and with all your strength. Love your neighbours,” the man said.
Jesus listened to the person and said, “Yes, you are right. Now go and do the same, you will definitely find a place in heaven.”
“But who is our neighbour?” The man asked Jesus.
After this Jesus told a story to answer that person’s question and that story was about the good Samaritan.
