What Has Gone Before:
And after a time the seventy men came again to Jesus, saying, "Lord, even the
evil spirits obey our words in thy name!" And Jesus said to them, "I saw Satan,
the king of the evil spirits, falling down like lightning from heaven. I have
given you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions; and nothing shall harm
you. Still, do not rejoice because the evil spirits obey you; but rejoice that
your names are written in heaven." And at that time, one of the scribes,—men who
wrote copies of the books of the Old Testament, and studied them, and taught
them,—came to Jesus and asked him a question, to see what answer he would give.
He said, "Master, what shall I do to have everlasting life?"
Jesus said to the scribe, "What is written in the law? You are a reader of God's
law; tell me what it says?" Then the man gave this answer, "Thou shalt love the
Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
strength, and with all thy mind; and thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."
Jesus said to the man, "You have answered right; do this, and you shall have

side. But a certain Samaritan, as he was going down, came where this man was;
and as soon as he saw him he felt a pity for him. He came to the man, and
dressed his wounds, pouring oil and wine into them. Then he lifted him up, and
set him on his own beast of burden, and walked beside him to an inn. There he
took care of him all night; and the next morning he took out from his purse two
shillings, and gave them to the keeper of the inn, and said, "Take care of him;
and if you need to spend more than this, do so; and when I come again I will pay
it to you."
"Which one of these three do you think showed himself a neighbor to the man who
fell among the robbers?"
The scribe said, "The one who showed mercy on him." Then Jesus said to him, "Go
and do you likewise." By this parable Jesus showed that "our neighbor" is the
one who needs the help that we can give him, whoever he may be.
