“Defining Neighbor” is the subheading the late Eugene Peterson, author of The Message, gave to his paraphrase of Luke 10:25-37. Some revile The Message version of the Bible, preferring the poetic familiarity of the King James. Peterson was purposeful, stripping away indecipherable layers so that younger generations could access the Good News. “Defining Neighbor” makes more sense to people who have no concept of a “Samaritan,” ancient or modern, good or otherwise.
