The  Good  Samaritan

A lawyer,  who was a teacher of the law of Moses,  posed a question to Jesus.  "Teacher,  what must I do to inherit everlasting life?

Jesus asked him,  "How do you read what is written in the law?

The lawyer responded,

"You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with all your strength
and with all your mind;
and you shall love your neighbor
as you love yourself

Jesus said,  "You have answered correctly.  Do this and you shall live.

The man being a lawyer was seeking to define the term  "neighbor"  and he said to Jesus,  "And who is my neighbor?"

Jesus replied:  "There once was a man traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho and on the way robbers attacked him,  took what they could use of his clothing,  beat him up and left him for dead.  There was a priest who happened to be traveling the same road and when he saw the man,  he walked by on the other side of the road.  Not much later,  a Levite walking on the same road saw the man who had been robbed and kept on going.

A Samaritan was traveling that way,  and when he saw the man who had been robbed,  his heart was filled with pity.  ( Samaritans were considered unclean by the Jews )  He went to the man's aid,  dressed his wounds,  put him on his donkey and took him to an inn,  where he took care of him.  The next day he gave the innkeeper two silver coins and said,  'Take care of him and when I come back this way,  I will pay you whatever else you spend on him.'"

And Jesus concluded,  "In your opinion,  which one of these three acted like a neighbor toward the man attacked by robbers?"

The lawyer answered,  "The one who was kind to the man and treated him with compassion."

Jesus replied,  "Go,  then and do the same."

(  New Testament,  Book Of Luke,  Chapter 10,  Verses 25-37  )
