ACHAREI MOT AND KEDOSHIM “Loving Your Neighbor” Vayikra/Leviticus 16:1 – 20:27
What is Holiness? To be holy means to be different or special. God wants Believers to act and think differently than the world.
Holy Living One way we can be holy is to follow God’s commandments or Mitzvot. God wants us to be holy, just like He is. God thinks that people are important and He wants us to think the same thing.
We must not hate our brother: A negative commandment This commandment not to hate is not just about your flesh-and-blood brother or sister. We need to watch out and help one another.
But love him as yourself... v'ahavta l're'akha kamokha - ani Adonai Would you do things that would hurt yourself? But who is your neighbor?
Yeshua Tells A Story The story teaches about helping others even if they are different than us. One day a man who was well-educated in the Torah asked Yeshua a question. Yeshua asked the man what the Bible said. Yeshua told the man that his answer was right.
A Man Who Was Attacked A Jewish man was walking from Jerusalem to Jericho when he was attacked by robbers. They took all of his money and left him half dead on the side of the road.
Those Who Passed By Soon a priest/cohen came by. He went to the other side of the road and did not help the man. A man who was not liked by most Jews came by.
The Good Samaritan He was from a place called Samaria Samaritans were disliked by some of the Jews. They were considered outcasts.
Helping People Who Are Different Than Us He stopped and helped the man. He put medicine on his wounds. Took him to a hotel, where he continued to look after the hurt man. The Samaritan gave the owner of the hotel some money and asked him to care for the man.
Who was the Neighbor? “Which one of these men was a neighbor to the hurt man--the priest, the Levite, or the Samaritan?” We can be kind like the Samaritan. The Samaritan would be like someone who is different from us.
Loving God Means Loving People We must love people because God loves people. We cannot say that we love God who we cannot see, and not love a person who we can see.
Yeshua Loves People Too Yeshua cares for us like the Samaritan cared for the man. He loves us so much that He did something to help us. Yeshua also wants us to be kind to others.
What Did We Learn Today? We learned what it means to be holy as God is holy. We learned what it means to love your neighbor as yourself. We learned to help those in need even if they are different than us.
