The rejection of Christ by Israel is ramping up (and thus, so is God’s condemnation of Israel).
This is a parable to learn from, not an example to follow! And the lesson is “what shall I do to inherit eternal life” (10:25).
Big Idea: Two qualities of the “wise and understanding” that expose their lost condition
1. They misunderstand what is required to inherit eternal life (10:25-28)
2. They justify themselves by embracing their misunderstanding (10:29-37)
What does it mean to “go and do the same” (10:37)?
Because Jesus says this is what you must do to inherit eternal life.
What did this man do?
What will you do?
