The Good Samaritan is perhaps the most touching parable that Jesus ever taught.
The story begins with the lawyer's trick question,What is the greatest commandment? As Jesus answers with the story of the robbers, the Rabbi, the Levite and the wounded traveler becomes real. Imagine the traveler's emotion as his own countrymen pass by while his enemy, a Samaritan, stops to help him. Jesus teaches us to love and serve one another no matter how we differ in appearance or beliefs.
