4. Jesus demonstrates that the lawyer has completely missed the point

4.1. One does not define who is their neighbor one can only be a neighbor because everybody is your neighbor.

4.2. How much did they hate Samaritans?

4.3. Sir 50:25–26: “Two nations my soul detests, and the third is not even a people: Those who live in Seir, and the Philistines, and the foolish people that live in Shechem.”

4.3.1. Samaritans lived in Shechem

4.3.2. Sirach was not considered cannon during the time time of Jesus.

4.3.3. Most likely written between 100-300 BC
