Golden Rule in the Bible what I notice Leviticus love the alien as your self? Mark after the “contest”, an honest question
Golden Rule in the Bible what I notice Matthew in Sermon on the Mount Beatitudes sacrificial love overwhelming generosity of God »an appropriate response from us Luke in the Sermon on the Plain Beatitudes love your enemies »turn the cheek »give them your clothing »lend to them without expecting to get anything back God is overwhelmingly generous »we should be just like Him

Golden Rule in the Bible what I conclude overwhelming generosity much more than the “golden rule”
