Contributed by Rawderson Rangel
A teacher of the law asked Jesus, ‘Teacher, what must I do to get life forever?’ <br/>Jesus replied, ‘What is written in the law?  <br/>The man answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind. Also, love your neighbour as you love yourself.’ <br/>Jesus said to him, ‘You are right. Do this and you will have life forever.’ <br/>The man then asked Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ – Slide 1
