An eye for an eye according to Jesus Empty An eye for an eye according to Jesus

It is quite amazing how Jesus was teaching a people who were used to pay back to others according to their own deeds "eye for an eye", such a great contrast. May the Lord help us to pay others back according to the "eye for an eye" of Jesus.

Matt. 5:38 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
Matt. 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Matt. 5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
Matt. 5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
Matt. 5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
Matt. 5:43 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
Matt. 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Matt. 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
