The Parable of the Good Samaritan
Jesus was a master storyteller. He could spin a tale that would capture the attention of any audience. But his stories were more than entertainment. Jesus’ stories had meaning and significance. His stories were memorable, but more than that, they were stories that profoundly communicated the heart of God.
Our parable for this week is no exception. This dramatic tale, “The Good Samaritan,” is well known. So much so that it has become part of our culture. We often call people who demonstrate great sacrifice or exceptional kindness “good samaritans.” To call someone, a good Samaritan is quite a compliment.
For most people, this is a story about helping someone in need, but it is much more than that.
Join us as we explore the parable of the Good Samaritan.
