Jesus on his way from Galilee to Jerusalem

The good *Samaritan – Luke 10:25-37

v25 An expert in the *Jewish Law came to test Jesus. ‘Teacher’, he asked, ‘what must I do to receive *eternal life?’
v26 Jesus answered him, ‘What does the law say? What do you read in the law?’
v27 The man answered, ‘You must love the *Lord your God with all your heart. You must love him with all your *soul, with all your strength and with your entire mind. And you must love your neighbour as yourself.’
v28 Jesus said to him, ‘Your answer is right. Do this and you will live.’
v29 However, the man wanted to defend himself. So, he asked Jesus, ‘Who is my neighbour?’
v30 Jesus replied, ‘A man was going from Jerusalem to Jericho. On the way, thieves attacked him. They stripped him of his clothes and they hit him many times. Then they left him almost dead. v31 By chance, a priest came down that road. He saw the man but he went by on the other side of the road. v32 Then a *Levite came to that place. He saw the man. But he too went by on the other side of the road. v33 Then a *Samaritan came to the man as he travelled down that road. He saw the man and he pitied him. v34 He went over to the man and he cleaned his injuries with oil and wine. He covered those injuries with bandages. Then he put the man on his own animal. He took the man to a hotel where he took care of him. v35 The next day, the *Samaritan took out two silver coins and he gave them to the hotel manager. He said to the manager, “Take care of this man. I will come back. Then I will pay you any extra that you spend on his behalf.” ’
v36 Jesus then asked, ‘What do you think? Which of these three men was a neighbour to the man that the thieves had attacked?’
v37 The expert in the law replied, ‘The one who showed kindness to the man.’ Jesus told him, ‘Go. Do what he did.’
