Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 10:36

_ _ Which ... was neighbour? — a most dexterous way of putting the question: (1) Turning the question from, “Whom am I to love as my neighbor?” to “Who is the man that shows that love?” (2) Compelling the lawyer to give a reply very different from what he would like — not only condemning his own nation, but those of them who should be the most exemplary. (3) Making him commend one of a deeply hated race. And he does it, but it is almost extorted. For he does not answer, “The Samaritan” — that would have sounded heterodox, heretical — but “He that showed mercy on him.” It comes to the same thing, no doubt, but the circumlocution is significant.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 10:25-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 10:36

Which of these was the neighbour to him that fell among the robbers — Which acted the part of a neighbour?
