Jesus’s parable of “The Good Samaritan” is, perhaps, the parable that has endured the most moralizing by Bible teachers and preachers. The moral of the story has become, “Which neighbor are you?” with the incentive and intention of making “good Samaritans” out of all of us. But was that Jesus’s point? Looking again at the context of Luke 10 will provide some surprising answers.
“Indeed, we have all received grace upon grace from his fullness.” (John 1:16)
