On one occasion a lawyer came forward to put this test question to him: "Master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
Jesus said, "What is written in the Law? What's your reading of it?"
He replied, "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."
"That is the right answer," Jesus said. "Do that and you will live."
