Luke and Acts

   Matthew taught that Jesus didn't come to call the benevolent since they are already spiritually healthy:

"It's not the healthy who need a doctor, but those who are sick. Now go and learn what this means 'I desire compassion not a sacrifice,' because I didn't come to call the benevolent but misbehavers." — Matthew 9.12-13

   Matthew considered Judgment Day to be very simple — the benevolent shall rise to life:

"in the Age to Come the benevolent will go into life " — Matthew 25.46

   James concurred:

"Compassion triumphs over judgment." — James 2.13

   As discussed in previous volumes, judgment based on benevolence was the unified message of Paul, Matthew, James, John, and the Pastorals. And the same goes for Luke as well:

"When you have breakfast or dinner, don't call over your friends, your brothers, your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, lest they invite you in return and you’ll be repaid in full.
   "But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you’ll be happy because they have no way to pay you back — you see you’ll be paid back in the resurrection of the benevolent." — Luke 14.14

   Those who persist in benevolent deeds shall triumph on Judgment Day, according to Romans, Galatians, Matthew, James, John's writings, the Pastorals, and Luke as well.
