Neighborly love God’s commandment as a promise and a challenge

Neighborly love
God’s commandment as a promise and a challenge

The command to love your neighbor stems from the Old Testament (Lev 19,18). Jesus redefined the concept of neighbourly love, a key concept of Christian ethics. Jesus’ command to love included enemies as well as friends and found a resounding echo in Early Christianity. The essential position of Christian Ethics in the New Testament is reconstructed in the book and opened up for discussion. What relevance does this have for us today?
