Most people like to think that they are 'in the right'. Having failed to trap Jesus, the religious expert now found himself trapped when the Master told him that if he did everything right (including loving his neighbour), he would inherit eternal life (Luke 10:25-28). But nobody, not even the most religious person, manages to get everything right: and the Jews interpreted the command to 'love your neighbour' as meaning - 'Be generous, but only to other Jews'. So, the theologian challenged Jesus to confirm his interpretation, although the text says that he 'wanted to justify himself'.
