    What got Jesus in so much trouble for repeating this famous passage was what he omitted. The religious leaders liked to make these passages very exclusive. Jesus wasn’t happy with that, so he took out the stuff about vengeance on all the enemies and widened the language to be inclusive. 

    Imagine that!
