      The Good Samaritan
    3. Good Samaritan Only in Luke Luke mentions Samaritans more than any Gospel writer WHY?
    4. Luke wrote Acts i.e. Luke part 2 Acts ch 1
    5. Luke wrote Acts i.e. Luke part 2 Acts ch 1 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
    6. What is the big deal about Samaritans? John 4 4 Now he had to go through Samaria. 5 So he came to a town .. called Sychar… 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. 7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?”
    7. What is the big deal about Samaritans? John 4 9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans) NIV
    8. Samaria About 95 miles Similar to Leeds to Leicester Mm M M17 miles, 3300ft M M
    9. History Samaria was the capital city of the Northern kingdom of Israel 722 BC Assyrians (Nineveh) took most of the population away as captives Remaining settlers inter-married with immigrants moved in by the Assyrians to fill the land space. Built their own temple on Mt Gerizim
    10. Recent Past Jews and Samaritans actively avoided each other (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans) Footnotes: John 4:9 Or Jewsdo not use dishes Samaritans have used A group of Samaritans had got into the temple courts in Jerusalem at Passover and defiled it with body parts
    11. Jesus had trouble with Samaria We will get to ch 10 Look at Ch9
    12. Jesus had trouble with Samaria 51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him; 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem.
    13. Context of Ch 10 Rejection 8 “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you. 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, 11 ‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.’ 12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.
    14. Context of Ch 10 Rejection 16 “Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.”
    15. Parable Good Samaritan Context 25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
    16. Parable Good Samaritan 26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” 27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[c]; and, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’[d]” Deuteronomy 6:5 Leviticus 19:18
    17. Did he quote Jesus? Matthew 22 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
    18. Did he quote Jesus? Matthew 22 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[c]38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’[d]40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
    19. Parable Good Samaritan 28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.” 29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbour?” (ie there must be significant restrictions)
    20. Neighbours Pharisees taught that If a wall should fall on someone on the Sabbath, enough rubble could be cleared away to see if the injured man was a Jew or Gentile.  If he were a Jew, he could be rescued —if a Gentile—he could be left there until the next day.
    21. Neighbours The Pharisees went so far as to exclude any non-PHARISEES from their definition of “neighbour.” 
    22. Neighbours Matt 5 43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbour and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I ( Jesus) tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven.
    23. The Parable Story Meaning
    24. 30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
    25. Parable Good Samaritan Standard story of threes Butcher, baker & Candlestick maker Englishman, Scotsman & Irishman Jews were expecting Priest, Levite & Scribe Jesus puts in a twist
    26. 33 But a Samaritan, as he travelled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. ** Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[e] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
    27. Parable Good Samaritan 36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbour to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” 37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
    28. Story works on Many Levels Traveller was in huge danger No hope of help Helped by someone he hated Rescuer came to “where he was” Everything paid for
    29. Story works on Many Levels Our neighbours Are not only the people we live next door to Or those we know and like BBC
    30. Story works on Many Levels It is not Rules that count with God It is Relationship
    31. Story works on Many Levels As 1 John 3:17 says, “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?”
    32. Story works on Many Levels Love for people is an overflow of our love for God. When we don’t have enough love for those around us in need—this is an indication of an even greater lack
    33. Story works on Many Levels Martin Luther said “Faith alone justifies, yet faith is never alone. It is never without love; if love is lacking, neither is there faith, but mere hypocrisy.”
    34. Story works on Many Levels To us as Followers of Jesus We will be rejected This is the context But we have to keep loving them And Doing Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
    35. Story works on Many Levels It was not the Samaritan's nationality that set him apart even though that was the most obvious It was how he thought and acted The Samaritan saw exactly the same thing as the others but did something different
    36. Story works on Many Levels It was not the Samaritan's nationality that set him apart even though that was the most obvious It was how he thought and acted The Samaritan saw exactly the same thing but did something different And it cost him Time, Resources and Money
    37. Story works on Many Levels The real questions is Not “Who is my Neighbour?”
    38. Story works on Many Levels The real questions is Not “Who is my Neighbour?” But “Whose neighbour am I?” It is not those who we define It is what webecome
    39. What level are you at? Are you a rejecter? Are you a Jesus-tester? Are you a rule-definer? Are you a beaten up, life’s-road traveller? Are you a passer by? Are you a neighbour-seeker?
    40. As Jesus says.. GO and DO
