The most radical teaching of Jesus

Artist: Rembrandt

You know, I never quite thought of the parable in exactly these terms. This makes me think. It makes me think a lot:

Love your enemies is probably the most radical thing Jesus ever said. Unless, of course, one considers the parable of the Samaritan. There the admonition is to let your enemies love you.

-- Robert Funk
