The Good Samaritan by Dayonda
Clear

After seeing a man who was left on the side of the road to die from his wounds, two people of the ruling class passed him by, with various excuses to themselves not to bother with him.A bit later, a man of a despised race noticed the injured man, poured oil on his wounds, took him to a place where he could recouperate, and left enough money to buy his food and medicine. If the expenses went over the amount tendered, the man of the dispised race would make up the difference on his way back through town.Having told this story to his followers, Jesus said: And now, who is thy brother?

    They’re out of a teaching by Christ called “The Good Samaritan”.
    Samaritans were a mixed race looked down on by the Hebrews because they weren’t 100% Jewish, and the story was in answer to a question asked by somebody who was looking at Christ’s actions.
    Christs told people to “Treat thy neighbor as theyself”, and one of them (there’s one in every class) asked, “Who, then, is my neighbor.” The story Christ told went like this:
    There was a merchant trader who was fallen upon by thieves and wounded badly. The thieves left him for dead. Two jews passed him by, one even crossing the trail to get farther away from him. Finally, a Samaritan came along, saw the man’s need, and put the man on the trader’s own donkey. He poured oil on his wounds and took him to an inn, where he paid for some nights’ rest, and said he’d pay any more money owed to keep the injured man on his way back through town. We’re to “liken the scriptures to ourselves” so we’re expected to do what we can for our “neighbors”, not just the next-door type.
