Jesus Echoes the Prophets

The prophets insisted upon justice — honesty in all things; equality and dignity for people; special compassion for the poor, the widow, and the alien. The prophets insisted upon holiness — humble obedience to God and God’s ways, right relationships among people, integrity of character. The prophets insisted upon generosity — fair distribution of property and wealth, humility from the powerful, compassion from all.
