Behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested him, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
He said to him, "What is written in the law? How do you read it?"
He answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself."
He said to him, "You have answered correctly. Do this, and you will live."
But he, desiring to justify himself, asked Jesus, "Who is my neighbor?"
Jesus replies with a story:
Jesus answered, "A certain man was going down from Queens to the Bronx, in New York City, and he fell amongst city officials, firemen, and tax collectors, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Dutchman, Dutch Schultz, as he travelled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and he then approached the firemen. And, the fireman said to the Dutchman -- 'Mr. Shultz, I'm afraid you owe us ten bucks.' And then the Dutchman, moved with righteous anger, beat the fire inspector to death. And, from that day, the fire inspectors of New York were much more circumspect about who they fined. Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?"
He said, "He who showed mercy on him."
Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."
