Luke 10:25-11:4: The Good Samaritan

Jericho Synagogue MosaicChapter 10

25- And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

26- He said to him, “What is written in the law? How do you read?”

27- And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”

28- And he said to him, “You have answered right; do this, and you will live.”

29- But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30- Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31- Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.

32- So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

33- But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was; and when he saw him, he had compassion,

34- and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; then he set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35- And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, `Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’

36- Which of these three, do you think, proved neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?”

37- He said, “The one who showed mercy on him.” And Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

38- Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house.

39- And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching.

40- But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.”

41- But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;

42-one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her.”

Chapter 11

1- He was praying in a certain place, and when he ceased, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.”

2- And he said to them, “When you pray, say- “Father, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.

3- Give us each day our daily bread;

4- and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive every one who is indebted to us; and lead us not into temptation.”
