The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
Who is my neighbor? Is a neighbor an individual or a whole community? "Love your neighbor as yourself" should extend to everyone but it begins with one individual. Can we graciously declare someone who we do not like or are from a group of people we do not like to be a good neighbor? What does it mean to be merciful towards someone? The message is from Luke 10:25-37
