The Good Samaritan | Bible Story

The Good Samaritan

Jesus chose seventy evangelists from among his disciples to spread God’s message all over the land. Many followed him, but some were doubtful or wanted to mock him.

Once, a lawyer, trying to mock Jesus, asked him, “What shall I do to inherit eternal life, Master?” “”Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and love your neighbour as yourself,” Jesus responded. But the lawyer was still hoping to trip up Jesus, so he asked, “Who is my neighbor?”

And Jesus told him a story: A traveler was caught by thieves who tore off his clothes, took his money, and beat him up, leaving him badly injured on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho.

A priest passed by and avoided him. A Levite, who followed the laws, also passed him by and ignored him. Then came a Samaritan who was not a follower of the God of Israel but had a compassionate heart.

He bound up the man’s wounds and, putting him on his donkey, brought him to an inn where he cared for him till he was better. The Samaritan had to continue his journey the next day. So he gave the innkeeper money to take care of the man before he left.

The Samaritan said, “Take care of him whatever it costs you.” “When I return, I shall pay you what you have spent.”

“Tell me, which of the three was a helpful neighbour to the wounded man, the priest, the Levite, or the Samaritan?” Jesus inquired.

“The one who showed him compassion, of course,” said the lawyer, who had learned his lesson and understood now.

“Get up and do the same!” said Jesus.
