Chapter Summary

Among the aspects of love in the Gospel, the love of enemies is certainly very important, and therefore the choice is purely justified. Tertullian once emphasized the love of enemies as a typical Christian specific. The passage in the Gospel of Luke speaks of the love of enemies, which has its parallel in Matthew. In Matthew clearly two sections are lifted from each other, which one of retaliation, the other is of loving one's enemy. The structure of this part of the Sermon on the Mount, they are accordingly of Jesus to his disciples offered outdoing the Torah rules, namely the commandment of "eye for an eye" and of charity. Motivation to love one's enemies in Luke is a clear and interesting example of how the Hellenization of Christian preaching has taken place. The original text of the chapter is in German.
