“The Good Samaritan” is a parable told by Jesus Christ in the New Testament’s Gospel of Luke, Chapter 10, verses 25-37. Here are some key points about this story:

  1. The story begins with a Jewish lawyer asking Jesus what he must do to inherit eternal life. Jesus asks the lawyer what is written in the law, and the lawyer responds with the commandment to love God and to love one’s neighbor as oneself.

  2. The lawyer then asks Jesus to clarify who his neighbor is. Jesus responds by telling the story of a man who was robbed, beaten, and left for dead on the side of the road.

  3. A priest and a Levite, both of whom were considered to be religious leaders, pass by the man without stopping to help. However, a Samaritan, who was traditionally despised by Jews, stops to care for the man.

  4. The Samaritan bandages the man’s wounds, takes him to an inn, and pays for his care. Jesus asks the lawyer which of the three men was a neighbor to the man who was robbed, and the lawyer responds, “The one who showed him mercy.”

  5. The story teaches the lesson that loving one’s neighbor means showing compassion to all people, regardless of their race or social status. It also challenges the idea that religious leaders are always the ones who will do the right thing, and suggests that outsiders can sometimes be more compassionate and merciful.

  6. The phrase “Good Samaritan” has entered into popular culture, and is often used to describe someone who goes out of their way to help others, especially in situations where others might not be willing to help.

Overall, “The Good Samaritan” is a powerful story of compassion and love, and serves as a reminder that we should treat all people with kindness and respect, regardless of our differences.
