Jesus loved to talk to many different people and he wasn't afraid to answer their questions. Sometimes he answered their questions not just with any answer but with a whole story. One time Jesus was asked "who is my neighbor" The person who asked him loved rules and laws, he was probably part of group of people who loved to add to the rules and laws that God already gave us. Sometimes this gets in the way of a person's relationship with God, it isn't that they don't love God, but that loving God and other's isn't their main focus. God gives us laws because he loves us, and because He loves us he wants to have a close relationship. He wants us to love him and loves others too, all other rules and laws point to these two. This month we will learn more about how Jesus answered the man who loved rules. In the meantime, check out this video about the different Jewish groups during Jesus lifetime.
