Some questions asked at certain times take on the form of rhetoric. Asked but really doesn't need an answer as the one asking most probably already have the answer... within.
Jesus' response to what he probably viewed as rhetorical... " Thou Knowest the Commandments"... One reason people often ask questions that they already have the answer to is that, subconsiously they are wishing for the answer to come back in their favor.
A good answer and well meaning may not always be the correct answer. When a body wants to escape the truth by searching for favorable responses it's usually leading the way to desaster. Just because the truth is not YOUR truth, doesn't mean it's not the truth. God gave charge to those who are called by His name and if your Father is there you should want to be there also.
Seeking peace in the midst of seperation from the peace maker will be just a waste of time. This man thought that if he fell down on his knees and called Jesus "Good Master"... he would surely gain favor and Salvation was inevitable.
